We heard for the first time ASUS ZenPad last February, in the latest report of 2014 that the Taiwanese company has published for investors. ZenPad is still part of the strategy of ASUS in the mobile but, today, its goals are clearer. The ASUS ZenPad replace the family of tablet ASUS MeMO Pad and ASUS FonePad, whose names and the dozens of versions have created many problems for users. The same Jerry Shen, CEO of the company, said recently that will present a range of ZenPad at Computex 2015, with high-profile features at affordable prices.

In short, their debut is expected in the short and in the meantime scoviamo the first clues online starting from the smallest. Some online shops (Russians) have started to update the lists revealing preview the features and prices of the first models, ASUS ZenPad 7 (Z170C) and ASUS ZenPad 7 3G (Z170CG). The two tablet should have a design very similar to that of FonePad, with a polycarbonate frame and a rough finish on the cover, which is interrupted only at the lower edge smooth. The rear camera has been moved in the upper left, while the ASUS logo is now readable in the horizontal and not more vertically. Probably they will be declined in more colors, including classic black (Z170C-1A013A) and white (Z170C-1B009A).
ASUS ZenPad 7 will be equipped with an Intel Atom-C3200RK or x3 x3-C3230RK (SoFIA 3G-R) to 1.4 GHz, with 1GB of RAM memory and 1066MHz 8GB / 16GB of storage expandable with a micro SD card slot up to 64GB.

ASUS ZenPad 8
At the same time, ASUS ZenPad 8 (ASUS P01M) has been certified by the FCC and will initially declined models Zenpad Z380KL 8.0 and 8.0 ZenPad Z380C. Documents online will describe a tablet that has the same design of his younger brother (note the change of finishing on the cover?) But of the technical features of higher end.
