When Asus announces stuff, it really announces stuff. That weird Turducken Transformer thing from earlier is far from the only thing the Tiawanese OEM has revealed at Computex. There are also new Transformer Pads, MeMO Pads, and an updated line of Fonepads – you get one guess what they do.

Transformer Pads

11 103

Okay, so the new Transformer Pads are solidly in the mid-range of Asus' product lineup. There are TF103C and TF303CL model numbers. Both are powered by an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and have the usual array of connectivity options. They also both Run Android 4.4 in tablet and laptop mode. The difference between the models is in the screen – the TF303 is 1920x1200 and the TF103 is 1280x800 (this device has actually shown its face a few times already).


MeMO Pads

Moving on to smaller devices, the MeMO Pads announced at Computex come in two forms – MeMO Pad7 and MeMO Pad8. The Pad8 is 1920x1200 resolution and has yet another Intel Atom Z3580 processor and Android 4.4. The 7-inch tablet (as well as a cheaper variant of the Pad8) is rocking a 1280x800 screen, but is otherwise the same. They come in a variety colors of with the more understated ones reserved for the premium Pad8 series.

As for the Fonepads, they are basically gigantic Android smartphones. There are both 7 and 8-inch versions of the device, but both have the same 1280x800 resolution LCD. Asus is targeting people who only want a single device to do everything, but they'll be doing it slowly – the Fonepad is 3G only. Asus hasn't announced pricing or availability for any of these devices yet, but I assume some of them, like the Fonepad, will be restricted to Asian markets.
