It's been a long time since I was excited about putting a stylus to a touchscreen, but ASUS' new Eee Pad MeMO might just have what it takes to win me over. For starters, it's running Honeycomb, has a dual-core Qualcomm 8260 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, and features both a 1.2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear counterpart.

The specs are only half the story, though - the tablet will also come with Media Note, which is a glorified notes app, as well as Painter, a painting app where the included capacitive stylus could really come in handy.

The MeMO will also ship with phone functionality of some sort, and ASUS will be selling the MeMic, a stereo Bluetooth headset, to complement it.

The cherry on top is the price: the Eee Pad MeMO will cost merely $499, which is also what Apple currently charges for the lowest-end iPad. ASUS promises that the MeMO will launch sometime in June, which gives us plenty of time to pull out our styluses again and see if they're still capable of providing a useable experience!

    Decent specs. Tho' I am not a big fan of stylus... does this mean it is a resistive touch screen?

    It's a capacitive stylus so the screen is capacitive.

    Plus, we don't have nearly all the specs...how about memory capacity, memory card slot, WiFi ability, screen size... From the image at the top of the guy holding it with one hand, it can't be all that large. And personally, I'm looking for a decently priced 10" or so tablet, something I can use out and about watching movies/recorded tv, or sitting on the couch reading a book, or comics, or the internet, etc (more specifically for comics since a smaller screen would make them that much more difficult to read).
