Asus chairman Jonney Shih lifted the veils off of the company’s new addition to its tablet portfolio. The new Asus MeMo Pad HD 7 comes with interesting specs and an attractive price tag. The 8 GB model costs no more than $129. If you feel that it would be not enough to store all your content, you can choose a 16 GB model, which will set you back $149. It is $20 more than the other model, but still under a $150 price point. With such a budget-friendly price, it is pretty obvious that the tablet is aimed at developing markets, but we have no doubt that it will gain fans all over the world.
Asus Memo Pad HD 7 vs. MeMo Pad FHD 10
We have seen the 7-inch tablet compared to the Nexus 7. While the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 will not set any records in the industry, in some aspects it beats Google’s slate. The MeMo Pad HD 7’s screen has a resolution of 1024 x 800 pixels, just like the Nexus.
The device is powered by a quad-core Cortex and features Asus’ proprietary Sonic Master audio technology. Unlike the Nexus, however, it comes with two cameras – a 5-megapixel main shooter and a 1.2-megapixel user-facing one. The MeMo Pad HD 7 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out the box.
Along with MeMo Pad HD 7, Asus announced one more tablet – the MeMo Pad FHD 10. As the name suggest, it features a 10-inch Full HD display with a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution. The device rocks Intel’s 1.6GHz dual-core Clover Trail+ processor from the Atom series as well as a 25Wh battery supposedly capable of up to 10 hours of performance.
Other features include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS navigation, rear and front-facing camera, and 16 GB or 32 GB of storage.
