is talking tablets at Computex 2011 this morning, and while we may have already seen the company's PadFone
, there are still a few surprises on offer. That includes the ASUS Eee Pad MeMO 3D
, a glasses-free 3D update of the original MeMO
Android Honeycomb tablet shown at CES 2011
, with a 1024 x 600 IPS 3D display, an active digital stylus like the HTC Flyer
, and a companion MeMIC Bluetooth headset for music and calls.
The ASUS PadFone is what we're more interested in, though, a 10-inch 1280 x 800 slate into which can dock a roughly 4-inch ASUS smartphone. Once in place, the tablet can recharge the smartphone using its own inbuilt battery, as well as use the phone's 3G connection and rear 5-megapixel camera. That, ASUS suggests, means two 3G-enabled gadgets for the price of a single 3G connection.
The company has also done some work fettling the UI, scaled both to suit phone use and tablet use. The PadFone can switch "seamlessly" between the two. According to ASUS
this is all semi-conceptual right now, with no confirmed specs, but the company does intend to release the PadFone at some point.
