It looks like ASUS will soon unveil a new lineup of tablets called MeMO Pad. Today, two MeMO Pads won FCC approval, a sign that these devices will soon make their way to the US.
The larger MeMO Pad has the model number K001 and sports a screen that measures approximately 10-inches diagonally, above. FCC reports also show that the device will sport dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth and a camera.
The second MeMO Pad has the model number K0W and sports what appears to be a 7-inch screen, below. Unlike the K001, the K0W does not appear to have a camera.
ASUS unveiled its MeMO Pad in early 2012. However, the K001 and K0W appear to be new additions to the MeMO Pad lineup.
The Vivo Tab RT is ASUS’ first Windows RT tablet and yesterday the LTE version of the device made its first appearance on the FCC. In addition to Bluetooth, dual-band WiFi and NFC support, the Vivo Tab RT won approval for GSM 850/1900, WCDMA bands II and V and LTE bands 4 and 17. AT&T has already announced that it will offer the Vivo Tab RT and this version of the device fits well with AT&T’s bands in the US.
AT&T hasn’t announced a release date for the Vivo Tab RT, but the device’s October 25th FCC approval suggests that we may see it soon. Check out ASUS’ FCC filings here.
ASUS’ Transformer Pad hits the FCC, brings quad-core Tegra 3 computing to the lower end of the market
News of ASUS’s Transformer Pad (TF300T) have been leaking since early February, and a few weeks later ASUS officially unveiled the device at MWC. Today, the FCC put their stamp of approval on the device, granting the Transformer Pad approval for its WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities.
FCC documents don’t reveal anything new about the Transformer Pad, particularly since ASUS gave us the goods on the device earlier this week. Billed as a cost effective alternative to the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 10.1-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 16GB of internal storage, and front (2MP) and rear (8MP) cameras. Like the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad will run Android 4.0 ICS.
ASUS hasn’t yet announced pricing or availability for the Transformer Pad, but today’s FCC filing is a good sign that we’ll see the device soon.
ASUS’ Eee Pad Slider hit the FCC back in July before it was released in the Fall of 2011. Yesterday, internal photos of the device were released by the FCC, providing us with a look inside ASUS’ innovative Android tablet with a retractable QWERTY keypad.
Pics of the Slider’s interface board show a Nuvoton controller. Also visible is a Kingston flash memory module and what appears to be an Atmel touch screen controller. Unfortunately, we don’t get a look at the Slider’s main board or NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.
