Asus MemoPad FHD10 tablet unveiled at Computex

After the Asus Transformer Book Trio, meet the FHD10 which is based on an Intel Clover Trail+ CPU, the Intel Atom Z2560, a dual-core model with a PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 GPU and clocked at 1.6GHz.

It packs a 10in 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display with 2Gb of RAM, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, either 16GB or 32GB of RAM, GPS, a 25Whr battery that can power the tablet for up to 10 hours, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0, a rear 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.2-megpixel one, 5GB lifetime Asus WebStorage cloud-based storage, a weight of 580g, a thickness of 9.5mm, a microSD card reader and a rather thick bezel.

There are a few things worth mentioning. Firstly the MemoPad range is definitely starting to get some traction as a value/mainstream proposition with the Transformer family getting a premium label (and premium pricing). One will therefore expect Asus to be aggressive with the price of the Memo Pad FHD10.

Asus hasn't announced whether there will be any docking station accessory for this tablet although it would surprise me if that was the case as it would wipe out a pretty significant USP of the Transformer family. Thirdly, it would be interesting to see whether Asus launches a version of this tablet with Windows 8.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
