Asus is prepping an addition to its MeMO Pad tablet lineup with the ME176C, an Android slate that has leaked in full on the Ukrainian website ITC.ua. In addition to a complete gallery of what is said to be the tablet, a list of specs have also surfaced detailing, among other things, a Bay Trail processor.
Sometimes in the lead up to the official unveil of a product there are plenty of leaks that tip some of the specs about the device. That was definitely the case with the Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet last month. The tablet was confirmed by a leaked user manual early in January, only a few days ahead of CES 2014. At CES 2014, the tablet made its official debut.
A few days ago, a user manual for the Asus VivoTab Note 8 turned up online confirming that the tablet was coming. This week saw the tablet official launch of the VivoTab Note 8 at CES 2014. As we knew from the leaks and rumors about the tablet, it is running Windows 8.1 and has a professional Wacom Digitizer Stylus.
Last month rumors started to circulate that Asus was working on a new Windows tablet. The rumors claim the device is called the VivoTab Note 8. Along with the name of the tablet, some specifications were also leaked including the use of Windows for the operating system and an 8-inch screen.
Earlier this week, evidence surfaced on ASUS's website of a tablet referred to as model M80TA, something that was speculated as a possible small Transformer Book. This led to some digging around on the part of German website Mobile Geeks, which discovered the tablet is actually called the ASUS VivoTab Note 8, an 8-inch Windows-toting tablet and what would be a first in that form factor for the company.
ASUS plans to release a tablet hybrid next month running Intel's Atom Bay Trail processors, the ASUS Transformer Book T100 loaded with Windows 8.1. Earlier today, Intel revealed its plans for the Bay Trail processors, saying they were aiming them at Windows 8 and Android tablets and other similar devices.
This week AT&T is adding a whole pile of devices to their ranks with several smartphones, a smartwatch, and none other than the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1. This device is the first time the carrier has officially carried an ASUS tablet, and it's certainly a decent one: with a 10.1-inch Full HD display (that's 1920 x 1200 pixels across its face) and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean under the hood, you've got one of the most smooth devices on the market today. While we'd certainly rather be rolling with the slightly more powerful ASUS Tranformer Infinity with it's NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core SoC, this tablet runs with one that's certainly tried and true: the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC.
Knowing that people want the best of everything without needing to buy everything, ASUS announced its Transformer Book Trio today at the IFA 2013 show in Berlin. This three-in-one ultraportable device, the world's first according to ASUS, marries not only the two form factors of a notebook and a tablet, but also combines the top operating systems Windows and Android in one complete package.
