What do we have here? JKKMobile is running some photos of the new Asus Eee Pad Memo being displayed at CeBIT 2011. We may have heard about the Eee Pad Memo before but what makes things even more interesting right now is the fact that the said device is on display with a Bluetooth phone running alongside with it. Said Bluetooth is a pretty simple device with nothing much on its front but some buttons for accepting and ending calls. In fact, it looks more like a bigger iPod Nano. But the call thing is – you can actually use the phone to take calls incoming from the Eee Pad Memo which has your SIM card. Since the Eee Pad Memo measures around 7-inches, it eliminates the ackwardness of holding the device to your ear when answering calls.

Pretty neat right? Although you can do this via a Bluetooth headset alone rather than using another bigger device, you’d be please to know that you won’t actually be paying for the phone separately as it will come with the Eee Pad Memo. Pricing for the 8-16GB Eee Pad Memo will be around 499 euros while the 32-64GB model will have a price tag of 699 Euros.

As a review, the Eee Pad Memo features a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, 5MP camera with Flash LED camera and 1.2MP front-facing camera, and all the standard works of a pretty good tablet device. Plus of course, it will be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

So what do you think folks? Sounds like a pretty interesting package from Asus, right?
