Although Asus has premium tablet lines like the Transformer series, the company is no stranger to budget devices either, like the recently unveiled Asus MeMo Pad 7. Now it looks are gearing up to do another low-cost 7-incher, this time running on an Intel processor.
According to the latest rumor, the Asus tablet supposedly will be powered by an Intel Atom Z2420 dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. Other specs will include a 3MP main cam, a 1.3MP webcam, a 1280 x 800 resolution display, and will have a 4,720mAh battery. As for Android, it will have Jelly Bean 4.1.
Intel continues to show interest into breaking big into the mobile world. So far they’ve had limited success but a partnership with Asus could certainly help, especially if the tablet could be pushed at a low price to a global market.
The leak doesn’t give much details as to when this is coming, or how much it will cost. If this could be priced reasonably low, say under $200, would you be interested or not?
