CES Wednesday is generally a time when the big companies do their big press conferences, and it would appear that ASUS was a day early. Here they announced three new products including two Android 3.0 “Honeycomb” tablets, a Windows tablet, and the MeMO smartphone.
The first Honeycomb tablet is the Eee Pad Transformer that can be transformed into a notebook via an optional docking station with full QWERTY. It also has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 touchscreen display, 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, 5 megapixel rear camera, and mini-HDMI port for full 1080p playback.
The Slider Android tablet has about the same specs as the Transformer, but it has a slide-out camera with QWERTY keyboard. Check after the jump for the last two mobile devices.
As for the Windows-powered Eee Slate, it has a 12.1 inch screen with an Intel Core i5 processor. It also has two USB ports, mini-HDMI port, wireless-n connectivity, SD card reader, support for Flash, and a 2 Megapixel dual webcam.
As for the Eee Pad MeMO, it is a 7-inch Honeycomb device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. Even though my Source calls it a phone, I have heard that the user interfaces with a stylus.
The prices are just ranges right now, and I am guessing the higher price is the one with the most memory. The Transformer is between $399 to $699, the Slider is $499 to $799, the Eee Slate costs between $999 and $1,099, and the MeMO is $499 and $699.
