RumorTT: 7-inch Android tablet(s) being prepared for CES 2012 from ASUS

With CES 2012 right around the corner, new product rumors and releases are coming thick and fast. Today we have news from Notebook Italia of a 7-inch ASUS Transformer Prime. But, that's not all. There's also a rumored second 7-inch tablet coming from ASUS.


The second 7-inch tablet will be a refresh of last year's Eee Pad Memo. The Eee Pad Memo should sport a 7-inch capacitive screen with a 1280x800 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core 1.2GHz chip, 16 to 64GB storage, 3G and Wi-Fi as well as the Android OS. It's also rumored to have a 3D version, too.

There's also talk of ASUS' Padfone, which combines the power of a 4.3-inch Android smartphone with the uber-power of a 10-inch tablet. Padfone should hit the market next month, but as usual, there's no confirmed date. CES 2012 is next week, where we should have more details on these devices.
