ASUS isn’t sitting CES 2012 out as the Transformer-maker today announced a new Transformer Prime and two 7-inch MeMO tablets.

Transformer PrimeThe new ASUS Transformer Prime, TF700T, is a high-end alternative to the already high-end Transformer Prime TF201, which was the first tablet to ship with a quad-core processor. The TF700T sports a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution, or better known as “full HD.” It also has a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.3GHz chip, and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. For cameras, it has an 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front shooter. It supports 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and has a microHDMI input, microSD card slot, and it will support the keyboard dock as the original Transformer Prime. It will ship with the Ice Cream Sandwich OS and start at $599 at launch.

Seven-inch Tablets
MeMOThe ASUS MeMO made an appearance at CES for the second year in a row, and unlike the unit also introduced at Computex earlier this year, this MeMO does not have a glasses-free 3D display. It will have Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, however, along with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor. Just like the MeMO from CES 2011, this unit will support a stylus, though details on it were not revealed. We’ll find out more when we meet with ASUS later during the show.

Other specs include a 7-inch 1280 x 800 display, 1GB RAM, 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage, b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, microUSB input, and 1.2-megapixel front-facing and 5-megapixel rear-facing cameras. It’s due to hit America in Q2, though pricing was not revealed.

Finally, another 7-inch tablet was also unveiled, though it is still very early in development. The ME370T will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and sport a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, making it the first 7-inch device to run on a quad-core chip. That’s about all ASUS would unveil about that particular device.
