Asus Chooses Intel's Atom Processor to Power MeMO Pad FHD 10 Android Tablet

Asus is kind of quietly positioning itself as the king of Android tablets by offering a wide range of attractive models. There's the Nexus 7, which is offered by Google but manufactured by Asus, the affordable MeMO Pad HD 7 that sells for just $150, the also-affordable MeMO Pad Smart 10, and now the MeMO Pad FHD 10, the newest addition to the MeMO Pad family and the one with the highest resolution.

As the model name implies, the FHD version sports a Full HD 1080p (1920x1200) IPS display measuring 10.1 inches. Powering all those pixels is an Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz and 2GB of RAM. The 32nm processor supports Hyper Threading and has 1MB of cache.

Other features include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus and 1080p Full HD video recording, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB more (plus 5GB of free lifetime Asus WebStorage), and a battery that's good for up to 10 hours of video playback.

Asus didn't say when the MeMO Pad FHD 10 will be available for purchase or for how much.
