At the on-going CES, it looks like Asus has introduced three new additions to its tablet devices including two new transformer and a brand new 7” tablet. First up is the the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201, the first tablet to announce its upgrade plan for Google Android 4.0 ICS operating system. But it doesn’t stop there, it is also the world’s first tablet to feature the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core processor, so be prepared to be blown away with its super snappy speed. Measuring at a mere 8.3mm thin, the Transformer Prime comes with a spun aluminium design finished in Amethyst Gray or Champaign Gold and together with its innovative dock, it can churn up to 18 hours of battery life when used together.
Other specifications includes a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, Super IPS+ display, SonicMaster technology for the best audio quality, 8MP rear camera that can capture 1080p HD video and together with back-illuminated CMOS sensor and F/2.4 aperture helps to take crispier and more vivid images.
The company also introduced a new Transformer 700 series – a premium 10.1” tablet that brings the Transformer series to the new heights. Designed with Asus’ exclusive SonicMaster technology and equipped with a Full HD display, it promises to deliver the best entertainment experience ever seen before in a tablet PC. To top things up, the Transformer 700 series also comes with an 8MP rear camera equipped with an F/2.4 aperture.
If 10.1” tablets are too big for your liking, Asus also announced its MeMO 171 device that is said to straddle the line between a tablet PC and a mobile phone. It’s not like we haven’t seen this size before, but the 7” MeMO 171 from Asus is a 2-in-1 device that is accompanied with a MeMIC headset which lets users search for contacts, send and receive SMS, and place calls so you won’t have to look like an idiot holding a 7” tablet to your ears.
Other specifications include 3G capability, 7” high resolution 216dpi display, 5MP camera, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 16/32GB of storage, and a battery that can delivers some 8.5hours of video playback. A Wi-Fi version – the MeMO 370T – will also be available and will feature a NVIDIA Tegra Processor.
