Pay special close attention to the conclusion of this post for a bit of a whopper if you're a big fan of the largest show of the year here in the United States.

ASUS MeMO 171 hands-on

ASUS MeMO 171 hands-on

This week there's been some confusion surrounding the two MeMO tablets ASUS has announced for release in the coming months ahead - there's the MeMO 171, the tablet we're about to look at now, it having Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a dual-core processor, and the MeMO 370T, that being the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a quad-core processor. This MeMO 171 has been teased several times before, it having a 3D panel in the past, but here we've got the near-final version in-hand: Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradable to 4.0 eventually) and a Qualcomm 8260 1.2GHz dual-core processor behind a 7-inch Super IPS+ panel with a cool 178-inch wide viewing angle.

Android 4.0 ICS tablet interface discovered inside Galaxy Nexus

Android 4.0 ICS tablet interface discovered inside Galaxy Nexus

Back a few months ago there was a discovery made by an intrepid developer inside Android's Honeycomb OS in which changing the LCD density to a smaller value than the tablet it was running on had revealed a smartphone interface for the otherwise tablet-sized OS - one day after the USA-based Galaxy Nexus has been revealed here in the USA and our pal Michael Crider from Android Community has discovered that essentially the same thing happens in reverse with Ice Cream Sandwich. What Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is meant to do for the Google mobile OS is create one single OS that works just as well for handsets as it does for tablets, but until now we've got less than an adequate look at what this means for larger screened devices. As Crider shows here, it's a rather interesting experience that everyone should have.

Samsung Android Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet discovered in CTIA video

Samsung Android Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet discovered in CTIA video

It appears that there may be "more than meets the eye", if I may quote my transformer friends, in that Samsung video we saw early this morning - not just a "Nexus" phone, but a tablet too. As filmmaker Joe Lancaster sends us a tip on, the clip in the video we saw this morning certainly does include at LEAST the image of a smartphone of some sort with the three pins for inductive charging on the landscape side of the device, while behind the smartphone may well be a secondary device that's slightly more hidden from view. Seem wild enough to be true?
