    Android N could have split screens... wait, didn't ASUS already have that for KitKat?

    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.

Other notable tech specs include an 8-inch full HD 1080p display, 4G LTE, NFC and a fast 64-bit Intel processor. Thankfully, the screen on the MeMO Pad 8 ME581CL is really tough and scratch resistant thanks to a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, so it can take most pointy things without any scratches. Retailing at RM1099 the MeMO Pad 8 ME581CL is now available for even lower around RM959 or so at third-party sellers like SatuGadgetDotCom and DirectD.

    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.
