ASUS next-gen FonePad and MeMO Pad details leak

We had already been seeing details leak about several MeMO and PadFone devices this month, however it looks like another round of ASUS leaks has surfaced. This time around we are seeing details on the MeMO Pad HD 8 and MeMO Pad HD 10 as well as the FonePad HD 7.

Nexus 10 refresh expected to arrive from ASUS

Google announced the new Nexus 7 a few weeks earlier. That model has since come available in the US, however there hasn't been much said in terms of a new Nexus 10 tablet.

Despite recent rumors pointing towards another Samsung-made Nexus 10, new details are pointing towards that tablet coming by way of ASUS.
