We’ve heard rumors about a 7-inch version of the popular Eee Pad brand from ASUS for quite some time now, but it really started to pick up speed right before the start of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year. Sure enough, the company has officially unveiled the brand new tablet device, and with it, the usage of the stylus all over again. Sure, we’ve seen other companies use their own version of a stylus, but this one seems a bit more straight forward than the other versions out there.
The ASUS Eee Pad MeMo ME370T is now official. The tablet will feature a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×800, and run with an IPS panel. It will have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. And, as the image showcases, it will feature a capacitive stylus for when you just can’t help but take a note. There’s a Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and it features the standard WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. There’s a 5MP rear-facing camera around back, which is capable of recording full 1080p HD video. On the front, you’ll find a 1.2MP camera.
It will come in two models: 16GB of 32GB of built-in storage, and have a battery measuring in at 4,400mAh. It is set to go on sale here in the States in the second quarter, but ASUS hasn’t divulged any information on pricing quite yet.
