Computex 2011: Asus Prepping 3D MeMo Tablet

Another day, another teaser from Asus who have hinted at yet another product to be launched at Computex 2011 in Taipei, Taiwan in a few days, which is likely to be an upgraded MeMo.

The teaser reads "Break the Rules: A Tablet That Jumps Out At You" and leaves little doubt as to the main feature of that new tablet, the fact that it will have a 3D display (ed: could be something that actually springs out, who knows?).

Techinstyle has also published an accompanying article that leaves us to believe that the device will be an upgraded Eee Pad MeMo, the one that was launched back in January at CES.

The updated version still keeps the stylus with the rubber bit at the end and comes with a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 1024x600 pixel resolution, Android Honeycomb, a five-megapixel camera at the back, a 1.2-megapixel one at the front, microHDMI and microSD card slot and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.

The updated MeMo will face the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the HTC Flyer (which also has a stylus), the Acer Iconia A100, The RIM Blackberry Playbook and the LG Optimus Pad which has a 3D screen as well.

What is of interest to us though is (a) whether the screen will have a higher resolution to accommodate Honeycomb natively (b) whether it will be launched with optional 3G connectivity (c) when the tablet will actually be launched and (d) at what price.
