Asus to Launch 3 New Budget Android Tablets
Asus has a trio of budget Android tablets on the way. There’s been no announcement from the gadget maker, but earlier this week details concerning the tablets were discovered on the Bluetooth and WiFi certification websites.
The listings don’t include many details, so at this point we don’t know the CPU, price, release date, or other specs, but the sites did reveal the model numbers, screen resolutions:
- Asus K013: 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.4, and front and rear cameras
- Asus K011: 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.4, and front and rear cameras
- Asus K010: 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.4 and front and rear cameras
There’s no information on when or where these tablets are going to be released, but there is some speculation that they will be sold under the MeMo Pad line. I’m told Asus usually uses the K0xx model numbers for that line, so it would make sense for them to continue the trend.
It’s worth noting, though, that Asus already has 7″, 8″, and 10″ MeMo Pad tablets, which means that the newer models will likely be replacements. Anf given that Asus already has a 7″ MeMo Pad tablet with a single-core CPU, it’s a near certainty that the new 7″ tablet will have to be at least a slight step up.

Note as you shop around for deprecated excess stock once these roll out that Asus has TWO gens of the MeMo Pad extant – the MeMo Pad, and the fresher MeMo Pad HD.
I’ve got an HD7 and love it. (Although, speakers in rear again – why, tablet makers, WHY??)
