This 7-Inch Asus Tablet Has Tegra 3 Power for a Cheap Cheap Price

There aren't a lot of secrets left about Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core mobile guts; after all, it's already in the Transformer Prime. In fact, the only question left has been what other devices we'll see it in.

Well, here's your answer: a 7-inch, £160 quad core tablet from Asus. It's 60Hz, all day battery life, and "the best camera out there," according to Asus. It looks an awful lot like this morning's MeMO, except with Tegra 3 running the show.

Nvidia also promoted a technology called DirectTouch, which is what that secret fifth core is for. It's a "buttery smooth" touch experience, that the company claims is going to be far more responsive than a traditional touch experience.

I'm still not sold on that size as a form factor, but getting that much more horsepower for such a small price? That's a might tempting proposition.
