ASUS MeMO Pad 10 details surface, 1.2GHz Tegra 3 and Jelly Bean tipped

We heard about the Eee Pad MeMO tablet from ASUS at CES a couple weeks ago. It's essentially an Ice Cream Sandwich-equipped 7-inch tablet running a Tegra 3 chip and 1GB of RAM on the inside. However, we're now hearing about a 10-inch version that will supposedly come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a Tegra 3 chip clocked at 1.2GHz.

The 10-inch display is said to have a resolution of 1280×800, which is the same resolution as the Nexus 7, so not a huge feature for this new tablet, but it is a budget device after all. We're also looking at 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP rear-facing camera, and a 1.2MP front-facing camera -- predictable specs that don't seem too far off of what we'd expect. There's even an unboxing video below that shows the rumored tablet in all its glory.

Like many devices out on the market currently, ASUS will offer the MeMO Pad 10 in a bevy of colors, including a gray/blue combo, pink, and white. There’s no word on pricing or availability, but it's speculated that ASUS will announce the MeMO Pad 10 at Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona.

It's said that ASUS might price the upcoming 10-inch tablet at around €300, or $399 in US dollars. We already know that the Eee Pad MeMO will cost $249, so we're prone to believe that the price point for this 10-inch variant will only be slightly more expensive than that. However, we don't expect it to jump into $500 territory like the iPad or Nexus 10.
