Eee Pad MeMO ME370T | Asus
When Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said we might see $199 Tegra 3 tablets this summer, he wasn't speculating idly. The company has revealed that it's working on just such a tablet: Kai.
Netbooknews has just picked up the Eee Pad MeMO ME171 in Taiwan for NT$17,500 (about $592) and given it a thorough hands-on treatment. The tablet — which is currently running Honeycomb but is promised to be upgraded to Android 4.0 — is nearly identical to the ME370T, except it uses an outdated 1.2GHz, dual-core Qualcomm 8260 processor instead of a quad-core Tegra 3.
DigiTimes is reporting that Google and Asus are to collaborate on a 7-inch tablet to be out as soon as May. The tablet is said to retail for $199-249, directly targeting the Kindle Fire.
It's been quite some time since we've heard anything about the ASUS Eee Pad MeMO ME370T, the tablet for those who want an HTC Flyer alternative. The company claims it's finally coming out, this time providing a Q2 2012 window — still no price estimate.
