There is a 1.5GHz dual-core processor inside it and an 8-megapixel camera at its back. Yet in charge of this potent hardware we still see the aging Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

ASUS MeMO 370T 7-inch tablet clears the FCC, leaves no trace of Ice Cream or Jelly behind

Posted on May 30, 2012 by MG3

The 7-inch ASUS Eee Pad MeMO ME370T we saw in early prototype form during CES just passed through the FCC. It's still only showing WiFi radios with no trace of a cellular connection, although if it's going to be the $249 standard bearer NVIDIA and ASUS were so excited about, that's to be expected.
