Asus MeMo; 7″ Android Tablet for only $249

Well, the title says it all. If you had your eyes on a Kindle Fire you might want to hold off for a bit. Asus has a 7″, Quad-core Android tablet in the works for only $50 more than the current Kindle Fire price. Now that’s some serious competition. The Asus memo will be sporting an 8MP camera as well, compared to the lack of camera on the Kindle Fire.

The only information nVidia and Asus would release at the CES press event was:

  • Leading Camera Technology (8MP)
  • Android ICS (4.0)
  • DirectTouchd technology, allowing for a much more responsive touchscreen experience
  • A nice and reasonable $249 price tag

I’m not sure about anyone else, but I might just sell my old Asus Transformer for this device. As of now, there is no release date on this product, but keep checking back for updates.
