Asus ME371MG leaks out as a Nexus 7 look alike, but with Intel inside
The affordable tablet plot will start to seriously thicken at CES 2013. After we just heard a near-confirmation about the upcoming super affordable 7-inch Asus ME172V tablet (albeit not a $99 one, but more likely to be a $129 tablet), now rumors add an Intel Atom-based 7 incher in the picture.

The Asus ME371MG is said to bring Intel’s Atom Z2420 processor and a 7-inch 1280 x 800-pixel IPS screen into $199 to $249 territory (make this 199 to 249 euro for the Old Continent).

The leak this time comes courtesy of Picasa, where an image snapped on the tablet’s 3-megapixel camera revealed more details about it. Basically, it is so similar to the Nexus 7, we could assume it is some kind of an Intel-based version of the Nexus.

Here is a rundown through the rumored Asus ME371MG specifications

  • Processor: Intel Atom Z2420 clocked at 1.2GHz
  • Screen: 7-inch 1280 x 800-pixel IPS display 
  • Operating system: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • Memory: 1GB of RAM 
  • Storage: 16GB 
  • Connectivity: 3G, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Camera: 3-megapixel camera

The tablet could also come with a gold and silver covers, and at that price we might finally start to see more Intel mobile devices in our households.

Mobiles have come very far its high time that now tablets must be supported by high end chip manufacturers like intel, and amd and we see some real beast with i5 and i7 processor with dedicated PC graphic cards.

Intel chips are power hungry and can't be used in tablets, i386 structure can't run mobile OSes

Intel is developing Atom lines for mobile and this will be the first Intel powered Android tablet.

when it comes ith technology...nothings impossible now a days..they probably would make the same structure as the new tegra3 with 5th core acting as balance..but i dont like it...shifting from one core to 4 cores slows the tablet..though it saves battery life, the shift of core usage fluctuates the tablet

Did I say so?
Well N7 isn't available in my Country, so it won't face that competition if it arrives here.

Hope Asus would make this tablet available in South Asia.
Seriously, we find no internationally branded tab in this range.

This is one of the most powerful innovations of Intel’s modified Atom processor Medfield for mobile SoC design.
