    Asus Memo 370T c/nets Winner at CES


    Read all about it with hands on videos: Asus Memo 370T changes the game by offering four cores for the price of two | CES 2012: Tablets and E-book Readers - CNET Blogs

    LAS VEGAS--On Monday, Nvidia and Asus teased a product that may change everything. At the Nvidia press conference the companies flashed that a quad-core, Tegra 3-based 7-inch tablet would soon be released for only $250.
    The tablet in question actually turned out to be the Asus Memo 370T. An upgraded version of the 7-inch stylus-supported Memo tablet Asus debuted at CES 2011.
    While the previous version ran on Honeycomb and utilized a dual-core Qualcomm 8260-1.2Ghz CPU, the 370T will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich and houses a quad-core Tegra 3. No word yet on the actual speed of the processor, though. The previously announced stylus peripheral has been dropped for the device.

    The 370T comes with 1GB of RAM and at least 16GB of storage. It also sports a 1,280x800-pixel IPS screen that delivered smoothly scrolling menus. Holding it in my hands, the tablet felt and looked very similar, dimensionally, to the Acer Iconia Tab A100. The 370T even hits the typical-for-a-7-inch-tablet weight of 0.88 pound, right on the nose.

    Other details include a Micro-USB port, a microSD card reader, and a Micro-HDMI port. Lastly, the tablet will feature the same great 8-megapixel camera found on the Transformer Prime.
    In the wake of this announcement, every tablet announcement this week has to be taken into this new context. Last year, the $200 Kindle Fire had a similar effect, by offering users a quality tablet experience that didn't necessitate taking out a second mortgage.
    The existence of the 370T now demonstrates that performance doesn't necessarily require a price premium. While this is likely to have a tangible effect on tablet prices, we may see an even greater effect on the portable gaming market.
    With Sony's PSP Vita debuting next month at $249, the company now can't afford sleep on what Nvidia and other tablet CPU manufactures like Texas Instruments and Samsung are doing. If the Transformer Prime is anything to go by, quad-core Tegra 3 performance is nothing to sneer at to say the least...

    Okay.. sorry about the toaster comment, I think this tablet sounds very interesting. If $249 is the manufacturer's suggested retail price I would think it'll be on sale $199.
