Asus announces three Android KitKat tablets with 64-bit Intel processors

The Asus Transformer Book V and the Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi are two amazing Windows devices the company announced at the ongoing Computex 2014. But the company also had a lineup of affordable Android tablets ready to be shown off. These belong in the Asus Fonepad and MeMO Pad, and are all powered by Intel's new Atom line of mobile processors.

First we have the Asus FonePad 8, which features an 8 inch touch display with a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution, 3G connectivity and a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor. The display is surrounded by just a 5mm bezel, which makes the FonePad 8 the best screen-to-body ratio amongst all 8" tablets out there, at 72.2% ratio. The tablet also flaunts dual stereo speakers, situated at the front.

Next we have the Asus MeMO Pad 7 which has a 7 inch 720p HD display, a 5MP rear camera, stereo speakers and a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor.

Last but not least we have the Asus MeMO Pad 8 which the company calls "the world’s lightest 8-inch LTE tablet." The device features an 8 inch 1080p HD display, Wi-Fi 801ac, LTE and a 2.3GHz 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor. To top it all off, the tablet has a premium multi-layer metal coating for the chassis, weighs just 10.55oz (299g), and is only 0.29 (7.3mm) thick.

The three new Asus tablets are sporting a thoroughly overhauled Zen UI overlay, which the company touts to be "featuring over 1000 software enhancements and a new visual design." The redrawn interface is executed in the modern flat style, and introduces entirely new themes, transitional animations, notification sounds, and ringtones.
