A sleeping giant has awoken in the mobile space, that giant being Intel
, which slept through the initial transition in the mainstream market place. Not anymore. We're seeing Intel's Atom parts find their way into more and more mobile devices, and if leaked information turns out to be true, the forthcoming ASUS
MeMO Pad 7 ME176C will also cross Bay Trail T
Press photos of the unreleased tablet appeared on a German blog site, and according to the information provided over there, the MeMO Pad 7 ME176 will feature an Intel Atom Z3745 System-on-Chip (SoC) rocking four cores clocked at 1.33GHz.
It will also have a 7-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) touchscreen display with a 1280x800 resolution, 1GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera (no flash), 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and a 3910mAh battery good for up to 10 hours of run time.
The MeMO Pad 7 ME176C will come with Android 4.4 KitKat installed out of the box. It will weigh just 295 grams and measure a scant 9.6 millimeters. Not bad.
Look for ASUS to price the MeMO Pad 7 ME176 at about 149 euros (around $200 in U.S. currency).
