Holidays are still two months away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about gifts, especially if you are one of those folks who have a hard time deciding what to buy for your loved ones or for yourself. How about a cool electronic gadget this year, for example a tablet? If you don’t want to go all the way up to the top shelf and grab the new iPad, there is a vast selection of lower-end devices and ASUS has just added one more to the mix. The MeMO Pad 10 ME103K entertainment tablet has hit the market with an attractive price tag of just $199.
ASUS MeMO Pad 10 ME103K Tablet
As the name suggests, the ASUS MeMO Pad 10 ME103K is a 10-inch slate offering 1280 x 800 resolution at 149 ppi. The display is of IPS kind and is characterized by 10-finger multitouch input, 170-degree viewing angles and accurate color reproduction. The tablet is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4Pro processor paired with 1GB of RAM and can provide fun for up to 9.5 hours on one charge thanks to the 19Wh battery.
The MeMO Pad 10 comes in three storage options with 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of built-in memory, each expandable up to 64GB via microSD slot. Moreover, users will get 5GB Life Time ASUS webstorage space with additional 11GB for the first year. Other features include a 2-megapixel rear camera (some models will pack a 5-megapixel sensor), VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Miracast and stereo speakers with SonicMaster technology. Unlike the majority of cheap tablets, ASUS’ offering pleases the eye with pretty aesthetic design available in either black or white color.
Aside from its somewhat weird name, ASUS’ latest Android tablet is a pretty decent offering for users who look for portable solution for entertainment on the go. The MeMO Pad 10 sits decidedly on the entry level end of the spectrum but its modest specs are combined with low price which can be a huge incentive for users who can’t afford to pay a fortune for a tablet. ASUS has a history of making quite interesting tablets and the MeMO Pad 10, even though low-end, shouldn’t disappoint either.
