WORLD’S FIRST 7-INCH TEGRA 3 TABLET NABS CNET ‘BEST OF CES 2012’ AWARD

Under the bright lights of the CNET Live stage at CES 2012, the $249 7-inch Asus Eee Pad MeMO ME370T – powered by the Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor – today nabbed the CNET “Best of CES 2012” award in the Tablets category.

The awards show kicked off today at 11am Pacific in front of an eager audience of tech-enthusiasts.

The Asus Eee Pad MeMO 370T 7-inch tablet. It runs
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and is powered
by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor.

Molly Wood and Brian Cooley, two prominent CNET personalities, announced the MeMO ME370T as the winner in the Tablets category – beating out the likes of the Razor Tablet, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and Toshiba Excite X10 tablets.

MeMO 370T boasts a 7-inch, 1280 x 800 resolution display, an 8-megapixel camera and is powered by the Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Best of all, you can get all these specs for just $249.

This is the second year in a row that CNET has bestowed their “Best of CES” award on an NVIDIA Tegra-powered Android tablet.

NVIDIA’s Matt Wuebbling had a chance to talk to Engadget at their CES booth about all things Tegra, including the MeMO ME370T. Check out the 15-minute video here.

    Ridiculous. Who needs specs in 21-st century? We need flawlessly working products, not quad-core mumbo-jumbo.

    The real question is, does the battery last longer than it takes it to start an app.

  • Brian Redford

    Why do all people think that quad cores kill battery life? Dual cores are more power efficient than their similarly clocked single core counterparts…

    If you are running an intensive app, of course it will drain, but then you would not be able to run such an app on a single core.

    This ASUS tablet is way better than SHITTY iPAD2
    Who else think it is?

  • Will Park

    I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the battery life on Tegra 3 tablets like the Asus Eee Pad MeMO 370T. Check out this blog post for more info on how Tegra 3’s Variable SMP architecture and its “stealth” Companion Core allow it to extend your battery life: http://bit.ly/rJz29v

    haha mumbo jumbo? you must not be that smart because being able to build a quad core android tablet is an amazing accomplishment and if you are tech savvy you may enjoy playing games and watching 1080p movies on the beautiful tablet. but youre just a redneck apple fanboy GTFO

    I think this will force Playstation Vita to shoot itself in the face then jump out the windows. Abandon ship!

  • GillGalad

     I didn’t know it could be done so easily. Do the Tegra chips have the same functions as the Trinity APUs by AMD? Couldn’t they be used in desktop or laptop computers as well, since they’re efficient and even support 1080p?

    Is there a release date yet? I’m very interested.

  • Will Park

    Great question, GillGalad. In fact, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is building an ARM-based supercomputer using Tegra processors and NVIDIA GPUs. Check out this blog post for more info: http://bit.ly/rIDIth

    I want this.  I have an iPad 1 (skipped the 2 and will see what 3 has to offer) and an ACER Iconia A100.  I was excited to hear about the ASUS 7-inch tablet.  I will be buying this.

    NO WAY…. The multiple controls aren’t there and neither is the extensive library.

  • Will Park

    Hi Charlie. ASUS has said that its Tegra 3-powered Eee Pad MeMo ME370T is coming in Q2 2012

  • Will Park

    Great question, Yee. I’m happy to say that the Tegra 3 SoC — which powers the ASUS Eee Pad MeMo ME370T 7-inch Android tablet — does fully support OpenGL ES2.0.

  • Jose E. Rodriguez

    Does this new ASUS tablet support 4G LTE ? If not a big mistake from ASUS just like the Transformer Prime for me the best tablet on the market power full tablet but does not support 3G or 4G LTE this mean when you are out of wi-fi service you can’t do anything via internet.PLEASE ASUS Rethink about this issue.

    So it has a camera on the back, will it have one in the front for webcam use? I don’t really care much for “webcamming” but I thought others were wondering aswell.
