Asus primed for 7in tablet outing

No more wait for late slate?

Mobile application security vulnerability report

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicks off in Las Vegas next week, and the rumour-mill is awash with whispers of what to expect. The latest: a 7in Android tablet from Asus.

The company might have a Christmas hangover from its spat with Hasbro over use of the name 'Transformer', but word has it that the Taiwanese outfit is more concerned with the potential launch of a new seven-incher, Notebook Italia reports.

Asus Memo Pad 7in

While further information is a little hazy - as is the leaked image - the mystery fondleslab is rumoured to be either a smaller version of the company's 10.1in Eee Pad Transformer Prime, or a revamped Eee Memo Pad - a 7in slate which failed to surface following its announcement at last year's CES.

The fresh fondleslab is said to feature a 7in capacitive display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, plus a 1.2GHz processor and 16 to 64GB of Flash storage. Asus is also said to be readying a 3D version. ®
