Taiwanese notebook giant ASUS has announced the release of its 10.1-inch ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 tablet in Australia.
The new tablet features a Full HD (1920×1080-pixel) resolution I-PS panel, driven by Intel’s Atom Z2560 dual-core SoC CPU. It’s powered by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) preloaded onto its built-in 32GB of flash storage, which is expandable via MicroSD card slot, good for cards up to 32GB.
ASUS is claiming that with the Atom Z2560 CPU in tow, the MeMO Pad FHD 10 is good for up to 10 hours’ battery life. No doubt, video streaming will be a big part of that with the introduction of ASUS Miracast, which is said to allow the tablet to stream video to a Miracast dongle. However, compatibility between Miracast devices hasn’t been all ‘smooth sailing’ and there’s no word on whether ASUS will be providing its own Miracast dongle or which third-party dongles the tablet is compatible with.
Still, the tablet features two cameras – a 5MP auto-focus sensor on the rear plus a more basic 1.2MP camera on the front. The rear sensor combined with the CPU have enough horsepower to capture 1080p (1920×1080-pixel) video at up to 30fps.
As for size and weight, the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 is jut under 10mm thick and weights 580grams.
The word is the tablet will come to Australia in white only from the end of August and retail for $AUD399 through various retailers including Harvey Norman, JB HiFi and the usual suspects.
