Leaks and Rumors:

  • Z380CX (unofficial model, may not exist but was seen on Asus.com)
  • features front facing dual stereo speakers
  • uses the same chrome trim as seen in the most recent MeMO Pad 8 tablet release, see in images below
  • has a microSD slot
  • uses a 4:3 ratio which is something brand new from Asus and their tablets
  • there are going to be 2 different ZenPad 8 models, but they are only differentiated by the processors/cellular connectivity

The MeMO Pad 8-inch model will now be known as the ZenPad 8 series. We are expecting this tablet to hit most of the main “hero” countries.

At Computex 2014, Asus took the wraps off the impressive MeMO Pad 8 tablet. When we look at the recent investors conference, Asus showed the ZenPad slide with the MeMO Pad 8. We can’t really draw too much in the way of conclusions from that, but it may indicate that Asus wants to continue with that size. If there is a ZenPad 9, the the 8-inch size would become redundant. If Asus comes out with a 10-inch ZenPad, then the 9 becomes redundant.

The first leaked ZenPad tablet photo was thought to be the ZenPad 8. However, this photo is of the ZenPad S 8.0 tablet.

    The battery cover case is a great idea but simply doesn’t work.
    The second battery charges in priority, but the internal battery is used in priority. Conseuqently, the internal battery runs out and the tablet powers down even if there is plenty of charge left in the accessory battery.
    Surely a software bug that needs to be fixed.
