This is a big surprise!
Tablet Monkeys: Asus ZenPad 3s 8.0 (Z582KL) Spotted At COMPUTEX By Roland Quandt
I didn’t expect Asus to have another go at this. Their last iPad Mini clone tablet was a Verizon exclusive. It got generally bad user reports. Unfortunately, this new one seems to be a Verizon exclusive too.
I tried to fondle the first Verizon tablet. Going into Verizon stores gives me the creeps, so I was really determined that day. The store didn’t have it. And I wasn’t going to experience more abuse by looking for their NYC HQ store.
The frustrating thing already about this new tablet is that no fingerprint scanner is listed in the specs, despite the home button looking like the same one in the S3 10 (9.7). See more specs at GSMArena.
It’ll be interesting to see if this winds up anywhere other than Verizon and at what price.
Same-day update: Thanks to kopija in Comments for this: Asus ZenPad 3S 8.0 hands-on review. It’s more of a mini-fondle than a review, but there are new photos.
