This is just the beginning. Android tablets will soon be flooding the market and prices will drop “like a chart”. Stay tuned for more!
CES 2011 hasn’t even officially started yet, but the Android tablet news has. This afternoon ASUS officially announced a series of Eee Tablets, including three pretty unique Android offerings. The Eee Pad MeMO is a 7 incher running on a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8260 Snapdragon processor, sports a capacitive stylus (and bundled with apps that use it), with front and rear cameras — expect it in June starting at $499. The Eee Pad Transformer has a 10.1-inch IPS display, houses a Tegra 2 chip, has dual cameras, and a unique docking station that incorporates a full qwerty keyboard — expected in April starting at $399. And finally, the Eee Pad Slider has the same 10.1- inch IPS display, also runs on a Tegra 2 with dual cameras and HDMI out, and has a sliding qwerty keyboard attached — it arrives in May and starts at $499. All three of the new Eee tablets will be running Honeycomb, which ASUS has dubbed as Android 3.0.
