Just as we heard last week, ASUS is now launching a new family of stylish Android tablets dubbed ZenPads, which will replace the MeMO Pad series. These will come in 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch flavors with cellular variants, but it's the light, yet powerful ZenPad S 8.0 that's caught our attention so far. For one, this 6.6mm-thick, 298g metallic slate comes with a sharp 2,048 x 1,536 (324 ppi) IPS display, which has a 4:3 aspect ratio, so it's going head to head with the iPad Mini here. And with Intel's 64-bit Atom Z3580 chip plus 4GB of RAM, you needn't worry about its performance. Better yet, you get front-facing stereo speakers that are enhanced by DTS for some virtual surround sound action. If you're into handwriting or drawing on tablets, you can buy the optional Z Stylus, which supports up to 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
