Asus brought forward its Eee Pad MeMo at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. The device happens to be the tiniest in terms of screen size of all the tablets that have been showcased by the company at the CES 2011.
The Eee Pad MeMo features a 7-inch screen with a high resolution 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display. The device is said to posses OS capabilities by the Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb, although what was showcased in the demo unit was an Android 2.x. Processing is smart; owing to the presence of a dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm 8260. Further still, the Eee Pad MeMo has the same custom Asus Android user interface as the other tablets, with a retooled home screen, program launcher, and some custom apps.
What is pertinent to note here is the light weight stylus which is more than ordinary. It fits into a compartment in the case and comes packed in a sound metal case. In addition it also features a queer rubbery pointing area. This pointing area allows the user to feed pressure sensitive input into the device, which is pretty impressive as far as neatness and accuracy is concerned.
