Update: According to site, the more affordable ASUS tablet is shown to be up for pre-order for 6990 rubles (about USD225) for a 16GB version, complete with a 1,024 x 600 pixel screen, Android 4.1 and 1GB RAM. Photo of the alleged ME172V has also been leaked.


Will ASUS be releasing an even cheaper version of its already budget-friendly device, the Nexus 7? It might seem so, according to a couple of leaked photos on the Internet. Some sources have found photos taken with an alleged USD99 ASUS device (model number: ME172V) on Picasa with EXIF data proving so. Of course, take this information with a pinch of salt as these data can be doctored; on the other hand, many such previously leaked photos on Picasa have proven otherwise.

Other observations? The posted images come with  a resolution of 1280 x 720 and hail from an “Asus Asus” Picasa account. Speculations are in the air about when the device will arrive and given its appearance at this time of the year, it might very well make a guest appearance at the upcoming CES event.
