Looks like the ASUS Eee Pad has upped the Ante, for tablets and handsets at CeBit 2011, we got a look at the full spec sheet just a few minutes ago, but when JkkMobile uploaded the video there was a treat. The 7 inch tablet that rivals with HTC Flyer is coming with a bluetooth handset/tablet remote control. We haven’t seen a device like this come to market paired up before, so this is a pleasant surprise from the Taiwanese manufacturer. We aren’t sure why the screen is transparent when you hold it up to the tablet but regardless its a nice piece of eye candy for the camera.

The 7 inch device will be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. jkkmobile spotted the MeMO’s full spec sheet that also confirmed a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 processor, microHDMI port and quadband HSPA+ connectivity. We already knew back at CES that it was running WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and microUSB, 3.5mm headphone socket and microSDHC slot. We’ve also got a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back, and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front, while sensors include a gyroscope, g-sensor, light, proximity and digital compass. Under its 1024 x 600 resolution display you’ll also find 64GB of storage, 1GB of RAM capacitive touch together with stylus response.

Jkk has let us know that its going to cost $399, we aren’t sure if that’s for the tablet and handset or if carrier subsidies are in play. We’ll have to keep our ear to the ground and our ASUS rep’s email handy to get to the bottom of that one!

Update: claims to have gotten more concret pricing: €499 for the base version of 8/16 GB and up to 699 euro needed for the configuration disc 3/64Gb which includes the phone. Both appear to be official statements from ASUS so we’ll have to wait for a press release to confirm.

We’ve also shot our own video of the ASUS Eee Pad MeMO:

    Does that mean you will be able to make phone calls with this tablet?

    Any details on the pen input? That is… Will it rival the EEE Note, except for the smaller screen diagonal? The Flyer after all obviously does not, with no palm rejection in place. The Memo could do the trick of being more flexible at the cost of less handwriting usability, but the wider choice of software (vectorial formats?) would probably compensate even that.

    What about 720p+ Flash Video on the Snap Dragon? :-)
