Asus, the Taiwanese mobile major, is likely to feature a 10.1in tablet - the ME301T Memo Pad10. Pocket Droid reports the device will come with the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system and run a HD display with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
The device is expected to be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the clock speed of which is still unknown. The memory is believed to feature 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The ME301T Memo Pad10 may come in two variants - Wi-Fi only and with 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
As of now, though, there is no word if the device will include a microSD slot. However, Tech Radar believes the device is likely to come with a micro SD slot since the company's earlier devices, such as the Transformer Prime and the Transformer Pad Infinity, feature the expandable storage option.
The device, which is expected to target the business consumers, is likely to be made available in the first week of February, following a CES 2013 display, and will come in three different colours - white, blue and fuchsia.
PocketDroid believes the ME301T Memo Pad10 will be priced at around the €300 mark (it suggests a retail price between €308 and €322 in Spain), which translates into approximately £250 mark in the UK.
Apart from the ME301T, a second Asus tablet (the ME570T) was spotted in an AnTuTu benchmark run last month. It is possible the second device will also be announced CES 2013 and is expected to feature the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean).
