Asus MeMo 370T, quad-core 7-inch tablet for just $249

One of the highlights for Asus at the CES 2012 is their 7-inch wifi-enabled tablet, the Asus MeMo 370T.

Asus Memo 370T

The Asus MeMo 370T is the world’s first 7-inch tablet that is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor. It also has a WXGA resolution (1280 x 800) on an IPS display, an 8-megapixel camera, microSD slot, microHDMI port and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The best part is? The MeMo 370T will retail for just $249 as announced by Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and ASUS’s Chairman Jerry Shen at the CES 2012. This is way cheaper than other 7-inch Wifi-only tablets (Galaxy Tab 7.0 and BB PlayBook comes to mind) in the market today.

Granted that this tablet doesn’t have 3G support unlike its younger brother, the dual-core MeMo 171, imagine the processing power a quad-core could have. Of course, we must wait for apps and games that could make use of such power. Still, it’s a future-proof WiFi device at a really affordable price.

I think this would be a hit in the Philippines if Asus can somehow maintain the $249 price when it reaches here.

Oh yeah, the Asus Memo 370T won the Best of CES 2012: Tablets category award.

  • oliver mia

    no 3g support? does that mean it cannot connect to 3g internet by itself? which means we still need 3g wifi sticks, correct?

    • Calvin

      dont think 3g dongle will work here din. might as well go for pocket wifi to share your wireless internet.

  • perci

    I love Asus! I am a happy owner of Asus Transformer first gen, and I am so satisfied!

  • Edsar

    sigurado pag dating dito $350 na yan!

    • Calvin

      aruy… hahaha

  • Migs

    Sayang naman, walang 3G

    • Calvin

      yeah they should’ve at least made another version with 3G. i know a lot of people prefer wifi only tablets but marami pa rin may gusto ng 3g tablets.

    • GadgetFreak

      The 3G model will most likely come out this coming April. :)

      • Michael Crisostomo

        oh i do hope the 3g model will come this april.. i’m thinking of buying this than transformer prime.. ^_^

  • Griswold

    now this is more like it!! affordable yet powerful. di naman kelangan flashy design eh whats important for me is the internals pati na rin weight, hehehe.

  • MixMe

    • Calvin

      i think that’s the k2010 which is a 10-inch tablet. this memo 370t is just 7-inches

    Killer price point for a quad core tablet. It’s optimistic to assume it’ll stay at that same price point when it finally gets over here since everything gets marked up. But if the price doesn’t get bumped up by too much, this is a very reasonable tablet to buy.

  • Edsar

    Sisihin ang tax sa Pilipinas kung bakit tataas ang presyo nyan… lol:

    We can assume that this one would go up to 50-72% higher based on Ph taxes (galing sa Economy classes ko). so 360$ above ang expected na price pagdating dito sa atin (unless bawsan ng Asus).

    However, kahit magkano pa yan, this is worth the $$$$$$$$…

  • uracoin

    darn it, if this had a 3g sim card option this could easily be my new phone. i would have to use a manpurse, but thats ok with me. this has a decent price indeed

  • mika angel kd
