ASUS is hitting on all cylinders today and is announcing the new 7-in tablet called the Eee Pad MeMO ME370T. The company claims the device has "an emphasis on entertainment, media and light productivity" and with an IPS display and both capacitive and included-stylus touchscreen, the MeMO is a very unique product in the US market.
The hardware of the MeMO includes a 1280x800 resolution, dual-core Qualcomm 8260 1.2 GHz processor and 1GB of memory. I am kind of intrigued that they didn't use any currently available NVIDIA Tegra SoC on this though I won't speculate on why just yet.
It will be available in both 16GB and 32GB storage capacities and has 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1 and dual cameras for the front and back of the device; 1.2 MP front, 5.0 MP back. The unit will have a micro USB port, an audio jack that can be used for either output or input, Micro-SD memory card slot and micro-HDMI as well. Apparently a SIM card slot is included as well though I am not sure how that will work in the US market.
Coming in at under 1 pound, the MeMO is very light.
The Eee Pad MeMO will ship with Android 4.01 aka Ice Cream Sandwich when it is available in Q2 of 2012.
