New ASUS 7-inch tablet leaks through press!


Usually associated with 10-inch tablets, ASUS has now decided to enter the more compact tab range, or so suggests this new leaked press image.

Unlike its predecessors, this tablet fashions a portrait orientation that goes better with this screen size. Though we cannot yet speculate what Android version this tablet will run, I sincerely hope that it comes with Google’s latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Any talks of a Transformer Prime-like dock seem unlikely as the dock appears to be on the bottom of the tab and not on the side which is a far more convenient spot to attach a keyboard.

The tablet seems likely to head to CES 2012 (We”ll be covering that too!) where ASUS look to attract more consumers by slashing the price of this tablet from a suggested $399 to $299 in a bid to catch Samsung and Motorola who have had a much greater success in the tablet market.
