ASUS ME172V Android Tablet Images Leaked
December 21st, 2012
If you’re going to be in the market for an inexpensive Android tablet, you might want to hold out another few weeks until CES 2013. Some images of a tablet that ASUS is rumored to be launching have leaked onto the web. The (poor quality) images show a 7-inch tablet rumored to have a retail price under $150(USD). The tablet is very similar to the Nexus 7 with slightly lesser specifications.
The specifications came from a website that posted the product page early. The seven-inch multitouch screen is rumored to have a resolution of 1024 x 600. The tablet is expected to have a 1.3-megapixel webcam on the front and run the Android 4.1 operating system. Other rumored specs include a VIA WM8950 processor under the hood with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
According to the leak, there will be no version of the tablet with integrated mobile broadband. European pricing is rumored to be around €129-€149, while there’s no word on its North American pricing yet.
