Having recently unveiled the 7-inch and 10-inch models of the MeMO Pad tablet, ASUS has come forward with some release details for those in the UK. The details include pricing and release dates and it looks like the first to arrive will be the larger of the two tablets. Specifically, we are talking about the 7-inch MeMO Pad ME172V and the 10.1-inch MeMO Pad ME301T tablets.
In the case of the 10.1-inch MeMO Pad ME301T, ASUS has said this model will be available beginning from March 7th. This one will be priced at £249 (inc VAT) and initially be available in midnight blue with “more colors to follow.” The 10.1-inch MeMO Pad will be available for purchase by way of Currys, PC World and Tesco. We should also mention that pre-orders are already available online by way of Amazon as well as the previously mentioned retailers.
Moving over to the 7-inch MeMO Pad ME172V and we have a tablet that will be arriving in mid-April. The7-inch MeMO Pad will be priced at £129 (inc VAT) and will be available in titanium grey and found with a “range of retailers.” The release details were fairly vague on this model, however ASUS has said that additional details will be announced as they get closer to the launch.
Otherwise, an interesting tidbit on the MeMO Pad name is what it stands for — “My Mobile. My Moment.” And according to ASUS, the name is pronounced as “meemo.” The 10.1-inch MeMO Pad ME301T will have a display resolution of 1280 x 800, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 16GB of internal storage while the 7-inch MeMO Pad ME172V will have a display resolution of 1024 x 600, 1GHz processor and 16GB of internal storage.
