When a product impresses CNET you can usually guarantee that it destined for great things, in that case we have extremely high-hopes for the ASUS Eee Pad MeMO ME370T as it has won CNET’s vote fro the best tablet of CES 2012.
Somehow we havn’t yet spoken about the MeMO ME370T in detail, therefore this article has been put together to give you a good overview of everything we know about this tablet so far and why it is causing such a stir.
Let’s start with tech specs, sadly the MeMO ME370T has not yet shown up on the ASUS website and some sources are suggesting that it features a dual-core 1.2Ghz Qualcomm processor, but more reputable sources have confirmed that it does in fact boast a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, 1GB of RAM, at least 16GB of storage, an 8 megapixel camera on the rear, a microUSB port, a microSD card reader, micro HDMI-out and a 7-inch IPS display which outputs at 1280 x 800. Perhaps the biggest negative is that there’s no front-facing camera.
As you can see in terms of specs the MeMO ME370T is pretty impressive, but when we tell you that it will retail for just $250 you will understand just why CNET consider this the best tablet of CES 2012, especially given the fact that it will run Ice Cream Sandwich out-of-the-box.
The low price will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention, but if you thought that corners have been cut in the manufacturing process to keep the price low think again, it weighs just 0.88 pounds and looks fantastic (check out Engadget’s photo gallery for proof). Sure it may not look as beautiful as the iPad 2 and the bezel is a little thick, but we can accept that and instead concentrate on amazing performance offered by such an affordable tablet.
Below we have embedded a video which gives you a quick overview of what to expect from the ME370T, the form-factor may take a little of getting used to but we think it’s destined for great things in 2012.
We are told that this tablet will arrive in Q2 2012, will you buy it?
