CES 2012: Asus shows off £160 quad-core Android tablet

Asus has announced a new Android tablet, teaming a brawny quad core processor and a price tag that's sure to turn heads.

Currently without a name, the Android Ice Cream-powered slate takes in a seven-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and rocks a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 chipset under the hood that is not only twice as fast as its predecessors in the Tegra 2 range, but consumes 61 per cent less power too.

Even more impressive is the price, which has been set at $249 in the US. That translates to roughly £160 in Blighty– a bargain, we’re sure most would agree.

Asus also unveiled a new 10.1-inch tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime HD, sporting a full 1080p HD touchscreen, a Tegra 3 processor and up to 64GB of expandable storage. This is also set to be the world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet.

Release details for the devices are still under wraps, but we’re likely to find out more at next month’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). So stay tuned.
