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.
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.
