Amazon Kindle Fire had an amazing holiday season with millions of units in sale bringing it to be most successful Android tablet only second to the mighty iPad series from Apple in overall standings. Of course, a lot of this can be attributed to the strong marketing, publicity and hype buildup from Amazon but the fact cannot be denied that Kindle Fire is one heck of a tablet for just $199 that you need to shell out to get your hand on it. You get a powerful 7-inch Android tablet with tightly integrated Amazon echo system with dual-core SoC under the hood to back it. And it can only get better from here if it gets an Ice Cream Sandwich update. Judging from the success of Kindle Fire one can observe that $200-$250 is sweet spot for the consumers out in the market for a sufficiently capable tablet but don’t want to shell out a fortune for that. But be prepared as its now clear that there is a competitor coming out in this value arena to blow out the competition. How about the prospects of a quad-core tablet for the price around $250 sound!
Just unveiled at the CES 2012 Asus will going to completely outpace the competition by introducing a quad core 7-inch tablet ASUS MeMo 370T based on the latest NVidia Tegra 3 SoC and high resolution 1280×800 display and rear facing camera to round out the killer deal. We are not sure at this time that if it will come with the Android 4.0 or some earlier version of Android. But in any case this deal seems unbelievably sweet from Asus. Now if only Asus can deliver it soon enough as we just can’t wait for this puppy!
One thing is for sure that its going to put a dent in the Kindle Fire and also recently released Nook Tablet sales. We will update you once we get hang of the release date…
