This tablet was debuted at CES 2011 in January, and although it would seem to be an underdog it’s got sights set for the Flyer. The Eee Pad MeMO will make it’s next appearance at CeBit 2011 running Honeycomb. Just a reminder the Flyer is suppose to release with Gingerbread. Curious thing eh?
Jkkmobile peeped a spec sheet on this upcoming device and while it’s not sporting a Tegra 2, it looks pretty good.
They were also kind enough to share a quick demo of the device. Although the Eee Pad in the video is running 2.2, the Bluetooth handset accessory looks promising. The handset can be used for for voice calls, has a transparent display, and can also be used as a remote control for the tablet.
ASUS Germany says the MeMO should be priced at €499 ($690) for the 8-16GB model, or €699 for the 32-64GB model, which includes the Bluetooth handset. These prices at the entry level are lower than what we’ve seen the Flyer listed at so far, looks like the HTC just got more healthy competition. Just to add insult to injury the Eee Pad has handwriting input as well with it’s stylus. Anyone intrigued by this new-comer?
[On a side note this device has a lot of name variations that can be used to reference it. Haha.]
