Asus Eee Pad MeMO Android Honeycomb Tablet May Not See the Light of the Day

August 3, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

All you Asus freaks out there waiting to play with the Asus Eee Pad MeMO tablet are in for a major disappointment. Though delays have happened many a time, we know you have been thinking that the slate would arrive in your midst some day. We now hear that the Asus device might not come at all.

This stylish tablet, which was said to be gearing up for a June release when we last heard about it, may not be released at all, say folks at Dutch publication Tablet Magazine.

The wait had been on for quite a while as the device had promised to bring along with it some awesome features. It was earlier pointed out that the Google Android 3.x Honeycomb slate would sport a 7 inch display and dual cameras.

A 1.2 megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing shooter with auto-focus were what we were waiting for. Talking of the screen, it was to have come with 3D glasses-free IPS display, which is something different from what we have already seen.

In case you don’t remember, the device was also said to be powered by a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor and supported by 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Other features mentioned were a digital stylus pen, HDMI and micro USB 2.0 ports, a microSD and SIM card slot.

What had kept you thrilled was the new Bluetooth headset system called MeMIC that would have acted a phone extender. The battery life of 10 hour back up was also an alluring aspect that made you all wait.

With news flowing out that the tablet might never see the light of the day, we know all you out there are disappointed. We are looking to know your comments on this new development.
