Android Central at Mobile World Congress

Asus is no stranger to Android tablets, and so while nothing official by any stretch, it's not at all surprising to hear that a new tablet is reportedly heading to Mobile World Congress later this month. Following on from the already announced MeMo Pad 7, what we see here is allegedly the new MeMo Pad 10. 

The MeMo Pad 10 is said to follow on from its 7 inch sibling in hitting a lower price point. Reported specs include a 1280x800 display, a 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear camera, 16GB of on board storage with microSD card expansion and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 12 months ago specs such as these would have put the MeMo Pad 10 at the bleeding edge, but by current -- and forthcoming -- standards, it would sit in the mid-range, lower price bracket quite nicely. 

The source of the images,, claims that several Dutch retailers have already begun to offer pre-orders for the MeMo Pad 10, starting as low as €299 (£259/$407), which sounds very competitive for a decent 10 inch tablet. Of course, until it's official, nothing's official. Treat it as you would all leaks, but we'll be in Barcelona in little over three weeks to see just what Asus does bring.

Alleged Asus Memo Pad 10 press shots appear, launching at MWC?


Need a new Transformer Pad instead. Not interested in a tablet without either a keyboard or pen ... or keyboard and pen for that matter.

I wish manufacturers would consign the 1280x800 and similar resolutions to the history books on 10" and bigger screens at least.

Any news of a powerful 10 inch tablet coming soon? I hope Samsung announces one soon. The note tablets screen isn't good enough.

The Nexus 10 is a whole lot better for the money, and the Nexus 7 has similar specs but in an arguably better form factor and for half the cost. Just sayin'.

I just don't understand why companies keep putting out these devices, with specs lower than or equal to the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10, but for the same or higher price points.
