They’re called MeMO Pad, respectively from 8 and 10 inches, the two new tablets presented today by ASUS during this IFA. The characteristics are very similar: they share the same quad-core processor (which however is not specified), have an IPS display with resolution of 1280 × 800 (with different sizes of course), and you can expand the memory via microSD.
As in Fonepad 7 we find a dual speakers and a 1.2-megapixel front camera, but there are some differences between the two regarding the rear camera: 5 megapixels in 8 inch model, only the 10-inch 2 both with recording 720 p. Date of marketing and price are not yet known, but probably we’re going to knowledge already during this month. Meanwhile we show some photos of the model sequentially from one to 10, 8 inch, followed by a test video of colleagues at Growtheology and the official press release.
