There were rumors that the Asus Eee Pad Memo 7-inch, aka Asus Memo 7”, would be available in America as early as January, but Asus just confirmed that April to June (second quarter, or “Q2″) would be the official availability time frame. Unfortunately, the price has yet to be determined. The device itself isn’t new and it has been announced last year here at CES and shown at href=”http://www.computextaipei.com.tw/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Computex Taipei”>Computex in Taiwan last summer. The good news is that when it will come out, it will feature Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) instead of Honeycomb (Android 3.x).
If you missed it, the Asus Memo 7 has a 7” IPS LCD display (1280×720), a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage. I have added the official specs in the full post.
