Asus was the first major company to keep a press conference before the scheduled CES Press Day and it seems they’ve managed to pull it off successfully. They’ve announced four new tablets targeting different set of users.
First up is the Eee Pad MeMO. The never heard before tablet will be the smallest offering in the Eee Pad range, having a screen of just 7-inch. The tablet will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPU, Android OS 3.0 and support for 1080p HD video playback via the micro-HDMI out. The MeMO will also support stylus pen input, making note taking pretty easy.
Next up are the bigger Android duos – the Eee Pad Slider and the Eee Pad Transformer. Both the variants support physical QWERTY keyboard but in the case of the Eee Pad Slider, the keyboard slides whereas users can dock the keyboard in the Eee Pad Transformer.
The Eee Pad Slider runs on Android 3.0 OS and features a 10.1-inch IPS touch panel, Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU onboard, 5MP rear camera with 1.2MP front-facing camera, 3G support and more.
On the other hand, Eee Pad Transformer has a similar-sized screen sans the IPS panel and run the same Android 3.0 OS, Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU and camera arrangement as its slider sibling. However, Asus has confirmed the Transformer will be able to play back full HD content via the mini-HDMI port and give up to 16 hours of battery life.
Finally, it’s the Eee Slate EP121 that Asus has been bragging about. It’s a Windows 7-based tablet with 12.1-inch LED-backlit screen, Core i5 CPU, up to 64GB SSD storage (expandable via SDXC), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2MP camera, two USB 2.0 ports and mini-HDMI.
