January 13, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Well, we just have to experience something awesome in the form of the MeMO 171 tablet at the Asus booth at the CES in Las Vegas. Earlier known as Eee Pad MeMO 3D, the rig has reappeared this time without the 3D tag.

Moreover, the device is expected to get Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future. The 7 inch WXGA IPS panel with capacitive touch capability was found interesting and responsive, especially when approached with the stylus that comes as part of the pack.

For a quick firework with this new entrant from Asus, it features a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm 8260 processor with dual core power. 1 GB RAM is enough for its fast paced performance while it come packed in 16 GB and 32 GB versions as far as storage is concerned. Blessed with 802.11 b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, the rig is pretty cool in its connectivity options.

Tiny is pretty, but is it always what we feel after fondling  the newbie? We don’t think so, at least about the MeMIC Bluetooth companion phone/media play packed along with this machine.

Though we were not able to try out its cameras, it sports a 5 MP one with autofocus and 1080p Full HD recording. For video calls, the 1.2 MP front camera seemed amusing.

And all the usual stuff like the Gsensor, e-compass, light sensor, proximity sensor and gyroscope are also comes in the package.

Well, for additional compatibility, it can connect through microUSB ports, microHDMI (1.3a) and a microSD card reader.

If what the company says is reliable, the rig will run on its 4400mAh Lithium polymer battery for 8.5 hours even if yours are running movie clippings continuously for that time.

Now, take a break to watch the video.
