There was lot of tablets shown in CES this year, and ASUS showed few there too, but one tablet they didn’t show there was ASUS MeMo Pad. ASUS MeMo Pad, 7-inch 1,024-by-600 tablet runs Android Jelly Bean, has 16GB of internal storage, a Mali 400 GPU, 1GB of RAM and a 1MP front facing camera. ASUS MeMo Pad isn’t as nice as Nexus 7, but with price tag of $150 it’s little bit easier to your wallet. ASUS also informs that MeMo Pad is “tablet-only product”, meaning that it won’t be getting Transformer Pad-like keyboard dock. Check out the official press release after the break.
Google and LG collaboration, Nexus 4, is apparently now shipping with Android 4.2.2 pre-installed, according to sites in Brazil and Malaysia.

It’s bit strange though that both sites from different countries are reporting this almost in same time, so it might just be true. It’s still unknown what Android 4.2.2 brings, and it might just bring bug fixes, but as we all know Android 4.2+ has loads of bugs, bug fixer update would be welcomed open arms. Google hasn’t said a word, and all we can do now is wait and hope that the update arrives sooner rather than later.
