ASUS Malaysia has just confirmed that the ASUS MeMO Pad 8 ME581CL is now available in Malaysia for a retail price of RM1099. Notable features include an 8-inch full HD 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, 4G LTE Cat4 connectivity and a 7.45mm thin chassis. It also supports NFC and thanks to the AnyPen feature, can also use any pencil as a stylus. Check out the video and full tech specs below:

  • 64-bit 1.83GHZ quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage + 5GB ASUS Webstorage + microSD (up to 64GB)
  • 8-inch LED Backlight display (IPS, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Anti-fingerprint coating, 19200 x 1200 pixel resolution)
  • 5MP rear camera (autofocus) + 1.2MP front camera
  • 213 x 123 x 7.45mm | 299g
  • supports 4G LTE Cat 4, 3G, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Miracast, NFC
  • features dual back speakers, GPS and AnyPen
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • Available in black, gold, red and white
  • RM1099

While these features definitely make it a very desirable device to get, we can't help but compare it with the tech specs it initially came out with as this included a faster 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor and up to 32GB of RAM. Perhaps a more premium version is coming soon. In related news, ASUS Malaysia is rumoured to be coming out with their own online store in the next couple of months, perhaps to solve the problem of some sellers who offer ASUS devices at marked-up prices.
