We ‘d currently hear a number of Asus tablets that are supposedly on the horizon and now more information on 3 of them have leaked online.

Specifications for the FonePad HD 7, MeMo Pad HD 8 and MeMo Pad HD 10 turned up on Italian website Note pad Italia. Considering we already have the Asus FonePad and the Asus MeMo Pad HD 7 – prepare to obtain puzzled.

We will begin with the FonePad HD 7, a tablet that thinks it’s a phone, enabling you to make calls and send out texts as well as use data from your SIM-card.

The 7-inch tablet is reportedly due to pack a 1280 x 800 resolution on a LED IPS display, 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, 1.2 MP front camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G – so not a huge step up from its predecessor.

There’ll allegedly be an option of 8GB and 32GB models, although we would not be extremely shocked if a 16GB variation appeared eventually too.

Did you get the MeMo?

We are not done there however, as to go with the recently introduced MeMo Pad HD 7 Asus might well be lining up two more tablets for the range: the HD 8 and HD 10.

It appears that the MeMo Pad HD 8 and MeMo Pad HD 10 will share a range of specs including a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 2MP rear camera, 1.2 MP front camera, Wi-Fi and optional 3G connection.

The distinction in between the 2 are the display sizes, with one sporting an 8-inch screen and the various other a 10.1-inch one – we don’t should tell you which is which.

A somewhat disappointing detail is the truth that both displays have the same resolution as the FonePad HD 7 – at 1280 x 800 – which means the larger 10.1-inch tablet could experience some major pixilation.

There’s no word on a release date or cost for any of these tablets, however we will be keeping our eyes peeled at IFA 2013 next month for anything brand-new from the Taiwanese company.
