ASUS Eee Pad MeMO Honeycomb & full specs confirmed [Update: Video & Price]

ASUS has confirmed that the Eee Pad MeMO will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb when it arrives later this year, with the 7-inch tablet taking on the HTC Flyer with its hybrid stylus/finger input. jkkmobile spotted the confirmation on an ASUS product sheet at CeBIT 2011 this week, along with confirmation of all the MeMO's specs. The tablet has a 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 processor, quadband HSPA+ support, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. There's also 1GB of RAM and between 8GB and 64GB of onboard storage, along with twin cameras - 5-megapixel with LED flash on the back, 1.2-megapixels up front - and a micro HDMI port. Other connectivity includes microUSB with Host support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSDHC and a twin microphone array; there's also a digital compass, gyroscope, g-sensor, proximity sensor and light sensor. ASUS reckons the Eee Pad MeMO is good for up to 8hrs video or music playback on a full charge. Update: Honeycomb isn't the only surprise ASUS has; jkkmobile has shot a video of the slate (still currently running Android 2.2) with its Bluetooth handset accessory, a remote-control that can be also used to answer calls, so you don't need to hold the MeMO itself to your head. It also has a transparent screen. According to ASUS Germany, the Eee Pad MeMO is expected to retail for around €499 ($690) for the 8-16GB model, or €699 for the 32-64GB model, with the Bluetooth handset; that certainly undercuts the €669 Flyer at the low end.

ThunderBolt Available in HTC Store, But No Checkout

An intrepid or otherwise heavily obsessed fan of the upcoming HTC ThunderBolt has been poking around the HTC store online, today finding a way to actually get the ThunderBolt in their cart.
