There's a first time for everything: AT&T to offer ASUS slate this week
For the first time in the history of both AT&T and ASUS, the second largest carrier in the U.S. will be offering an ASUS produced tablet. The fun and festivities begin next week and the model coming to the mobile operator is the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1. We're talking about 10.1 inches of  glass with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, known in the big city as FHD. That works out to a 226ppi pixel density, by the way. Under the hood is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC. There is a Wi-Fi only version powered by a dual-core Intel Atom processor, but where's the money for AT&T if it sells you Wi-Fi only devices? For the model stamped "Intel Inside" you will need to order overseas.

Moving along, the AT&T version of the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1 has 16GB of native storage and connections to ASUS' new cloud services. Back and front cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.2MP respectively and the 6760mAh battery should keep the lights on for some time. AT&T is offering its first ASUS slate for $299.99 with a signed two-year pact, which includes 4G LTE data for your new spiffy tablet. Off-contract, you'll be paying $100 more.
