Asus to Bring in 2 Jelly Bean Tablets to Las Vegas CES

December 22, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With the intention of conquering the tablet industry once and for all with its low cost solutions, Asus is all set to launch their ME371MG and ME172V at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas. Apparently, Asus is very much obsessed with the 7 inch design that they started with Google’s line and they are looking forward in perpetuating that design ideology to a whole new level.

The 7-inch ASUS ME371MG is quite similar to the Nexus 7, though the hardware under the hood are different. This device will be using Intel’s Atom chipset Z2420. The base specifications include a 1.2GHz single-core configuration, a display with 1280×800 resolution, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

Along with connectivity options like WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth, this device is said to have 3G radios as well. The next device is the ASUS ME172V. This particular device is a bit more modest than the ME371MG. It’s a 7 inch slate itself, but comes outfitted with VIA’s 1GHz single-core WM8950, an ARM Cortex-A9 chipset which houses Mali-400 graphics.

The 7 inch panel in these devices features TN technology instead of IPS. Both of these tablets will launch with Jelly Bean 4.1 and it is widely expected that ASUS has something in mind for a custom UI to pump up user experience.

These devices will be coming in both black and white hues. The ME172V is expected to be priced between $129 and $149 and the ME371MG will be priced higher between $199 and $250. That price isn’t exactly competitive with the Nexus 7, but there will be some attractive offers at the time of official device launch.
