Asus Launches Eee Pad MeMo 171 Page, Asian Release on March 5
After introducing it at CES, Asus has (quietly) created a special landing page for the Eee Pad MeMo 171 on its website. Crossover between a tablet and a mobile phone, it comes with a MeMIC Bluetooth headset that allows users to place calls, read messages, and listen to music. However, this bundle option that makes the MeMo 171 quite unique among tablet computers — will vary depending on country. While it is ICS upgradable, this device now runs on Androit 3.2 Honeycomb. Other specifications include: 7-inch display, 1280 x 800 resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8260 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot, 1.2MP front-facing camera, and an integrated stylus.
Recent news suggests the tablet will be available in Asia beginning March 5 and will cost around 17,900 Taiwan Dollars or roughly USD 600.
