Some days ago at Taipei Computex , one of year’s biggest technology fairs, which is also a must for all manufacturers of traditional computers, which they use to sneak odd mobile device. This is case of Asus , taking advantage of backdrop of event just show a renewal of their tablets star.
This is new Asus Pad MeMO , a line of devices that already has a name, and opening lines to enable integration of a new pair of products. And besides strengthen 8 inches with one of the best tablets we’ve seen so far this year, Taiwanese have wanted to attack on more fronts, particularly in 7 inch category.

The first of two new shoots of Asus MeMO Pad 7 is a tablet which as its name describes is intended to fight for 7 inch market, becoming direct competition with his cousin and brother Nexus 7.
Regarding technical specifications, Asus has not released too, but we know that will mount a 7-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels , a fairly acceptable resolution for segment to which it is addressed.
As expected, not only in this but in most tablets we will see in coming months, protagonist and heart tablet will be a processor Intel Atom Z3745 with 64 bit quad core capable of reaching frequencies up to 1.8 GHz .
Moreover, we know that camera will be 5 megapixels for rear sensor, and 2 megapixel to the front, both with technology Pixelmaster home ownership. We’d tell you more, but has not even talked about prices or arrival to the market, although rumors place him around $150.
Asus MeMO Pad 8
But the real star of presentation of Asus at Computex is MeMO Pad 8 , a tablet we already knew from last year, and has received a major overhaul to catch up rivals higher end.
The most important change has been in design, Asus and now feel quite proud to say that 299 grams , is the lightest tablet in the world. Luckily, they have not achieved feat based helium fill the device, since it is also one of the thinnest, with just 7.45 mm thick .
For his bowels run 2GB of RAM to a company that will make Intel Atom Z3580 , which like smaller tablet have quad-core 64-bit, this time running at 2.3 GHz frequency cap. To all this must be added possibility of a model with LTE antenna , for those who do not want to lose data connection anywhere.
As for screen, resolution of this 8-inch panel is identical to slightly smaller model, and we will find some technologies that could make the tablet more attractive, such as ASUS Splendid, TrueVivid and Gorilla Glass 3.
Otherwise, we can expect other benefits that are already standard in these gadgets, like WiFi 802.11 ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and a pair of cameras, 5 megapixel rear and 1.2 megapixel front.
Asus has not revealed pricing or availability, but hopefully, numbers remain within expected for invasion of cheap tablets that are expected for second half of the year.
