News & Reviews: ASUS MeMo Pad
Dec 12, 2015
Quite recently, the folks in charge of the Google Pixel C tablet were quoted as saying that Android N (no news yet if it might be Nougat) will have split screens as a major feature. However, we can't help but remember that ASUS had a split screen feature for their ASUS MeMo Pad 8 ME512CL called Dual Screen and that the tablet ran on Android 4.4 KitKat.
It was certainly useful but limited by the apps that it could access, but since ASUS didn't see fit to include it in subsequent ZenUI updates, we assume the feature wasn't well-received. Perhaps it is time for the current range of ASUS tablets, the ASUS ZenPads to get that feature once more? Check out our full review of the ASUS MeMo Pad 8 ME512CL for more details on the Dual Screen feature.
ASUS ZenPad sneak peek reveals customizable tablet with 8MP cameras + fashion, power and audio casesAug 15, 2015
Recently, ASUS and Intel Malaysia held a sneak peek preview of the upcoming ASUS ZenPad tablets, which TechNave.com was privileged to attend. While the ASUS ZenPad C was also available the star of the show was undoubtedly the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG). Featuring tech specs that include the 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom x3 C3230 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 7-inch display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and 8MP PixelMaster rear camera with autofocus, the main feature for the tablet is that it is the first one that you can customize. While it comes with a luxury-themed leather-textured plastic backplate called a Zen Case, this can be replaced with several other Zen Cases which include black, silver, orange and pastel blue (as added value, the ZenPad 7.0 will come with an extra free Zen Case). While we still don't have any pricing details yet, it has been revealed that the ZenPad 7.0 will be getting a lot of other accessories. This includes a fashionable leather clutch case called the Zen Clutch, the Power Case which adds on an extra 2000 mAh battery for a total 16 hours worth of battery life and the Audio Cover which features 5.1 channel surround sound, 6 built-in speakers and 1 sub woofer which combined with the dts-HD sound technology in the tablet makes for an instant boombox tablet.

While the ASUS MeMO Pad 8 ME581CL tablet packs in premium features like 4G LTE and a full HD display, many users are asking if it is compatible with OTG (On The Go) USB Flash memory drives. As such we took it for a demo with a OTG USB cable and a USB flash memory drive. The short answer is yes, yes it does work with OTG USB flash memory, but sometimes you may have to mount it first in the storage menu of the Android settings. If you'd like to see the demo for yourself do check out our video below and keep sending us tech questions you'd like answered. We'll try to answer them as best we can.

The ASUS MeMO Pad 8 ME581CL is one of the more premium tablets out there and it is finally here at TechNave.com. We go hands-on with this RM1099 priced tablet to see it's awesome super thin and ultra light design. Featuring an 8-inch full HD 1080p display, the tablet is surprisingly thin at just 7.45mm and weighs just 299g. Offering a chrome metallic like trim on the sides, the design is fairly simple. However, while it is flat and thin the back cover is still curved for a comfortable grip. Check out the hands-on video in this article for more details.
