According to Notebook Italia, the refreshed tablet will be making an appearance at CES and shall run on 1.2GHz dual-core snapdragon processor with 16GB to 64GB options. A 3D version is said to be available as well. With the Transformer Prime having the brushed aluminium body, we would expect the Eee Pad Memo to have a similar redesign as well.
Another device worth looking out is the ASUS Padfone which is expected to debut in February as well.
Currently seen as a concept, the Padfone is a whole new category that converge both tablet and smart phone in a single solution. The tablet is a 10″ while the smart phone has a 4.3″ display. Instead of having multiple SIM cards for both devices, the Padfone lets you share the smart phone’s 3G connectivity to the tablet when docked. Apart from that, the tablet also utilises the smart phone’s 5MP camera while keeping it charged. This ensures a maximum smart phone battery life at all times. The actual product is yet to be finalised so expect some changes to the dimensions and features when it gets closer to launch.
Availability is currently slated towards Christmas 2011 and it is expected to come with the next Android OS – Ice Cream Sandwich. No doubt this is an interesting Android device and we can’t wait to see it ourselves.

The upcoming hybrid Tablet from ASUS has been finally revealed by PocketNow ahead of its event at Computex 2011. The tablet currently dubbed as ASUS PadFone, was earlier teased as a new Android tablet that defies convention with its Tablet + Phone functionality.
What it actually offers is a smart phone which docks internally inside the tablet. The smart phone itself looks like any candy bar Android device with a full capacitive display. Docking it inside the tablet makes the whole combination look clean, and it should transfer your communication features to the tablet seamlessly.
From the pic, we noticed the tablet’s imaging is using the smart phone’s camera since the docking placement is at the top. The front design at first glance looks similar to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer .
The details of both hardware is not clear yet but we can expect some possibilities such as smart phone charging while in doc and some data sync between the two. We are also curious to know if both can be used separately such as talking on the smart phone while doing some work on the tablet. This PadFone is definitely a new category of tablet and official details should be out soon.
