Asus MeMic, a Bluetooth accessory to Asus MeMo, stops by FCC

Last week at CES, Asus teased its 7-inch Eee Pad Memo. There were a few specs talked about, like its 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1280 x 800 display, but there wasn't any mention of release dates, carrier partners, or Asus-branded accessories. Thankfully, news and leaks don't stop after the busiest week in tech, and today, we've got a bit of news regarding one of the MeMo's first accessories. 

The little device you see to the right is the Asus Memic, which is a small Bluetooth device that will hook up with the MeMo tablet. Its main job, apparently, is to make and take phone calls so you don't have to hold a 7-inch slab of electronics up to your face to answer the phone.

I think that this type of accessory is a great idea, to be honest. I may be a geek, but I also have a social life; that is to say, I'm not going to jeopardize having friends and a girlfriend by holding to my face a relatively massive slab of plastic and metal to talk. I'd gladly use this small companion device, though, and I hope other manufacturers could improve on this idea, too. Just imagine having a single device that would do your tablet computing and your mobile telephony together, seamlessly, while having a more pocketable solution in a little compartment on the tablet itself to store and charge said solution.
