After disappearing from the headlines for quite some time, Asus is finally back to announce their latest tablet, dubbed as the MeMO Pad. Like the Nexus 7, the MeMO Pad is another budget tablet from Asus which is targeted at the emerging markets. Having a price tag of just $149 for the 8GB variant, the MeMO Pad is no doubt one of the cheapest tablet you can find in the market.
ASUS Launches the MeMO Pad™
The new MeMO Pad™ is designed to go wherever you go.
Fremont, CA (January 13, 2013) — ASUS is excited to introduce the MeMO Pad™, a stylish and capable 7-inch Android tablet designed for mobile consumers looking for a high-quality yet remarkably affordable tablet. With a starting MSRP of $149 (US), the ASUS MeMO Pad™ features Android™ 4.1 and offers full support for Google Play so you can choose from over 750,000 apps and games, browse the world’s largest eBookstore, search millions of songs, watch thousands of the latest and greatest movies and TV shows, and even flip through your favorite magazines*. Available in three colors – Sugar White, Titanium Gray and Cherry Pink — MeMO Pad™ sports an elegant, non-slip diamond-patterned finish in a thin and lightweight design.
Created for both work and play ASUS MeMO Pad™ runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU and a Mali-400 GPU for a smooth and fluid entertainment experience. It features a 10-point multi-touch LED-backlit display with 1024 x 600 resolution, 140-degree wide viewing angles, and its 350-nit brightness means images remain clear, even outdoors.
