ASUS came out swinging at Computex with the introduction of a wide array of devices including the new budget tablet the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7. The tablet costs only $129 for 8 GB memory and only $20 more or 16 GB.
The MeMO Pad HD 7 may be a budget tablet, but unlike other companies’ budget devices, this one doesn’t feel or look like any corners were cut in the making of it. The IPS panel has a 1280 x 800 HD resolution. The device sports a Cortex A9 processor from MediaTek and 1 GB RAM. The battery should last a good 10 hours and it comes in the aforementioned 8 GB and 16 GB variations.
The tablet is 120.6 x 196.8 x 10.8 mm and weighs 302 grams. The MeMO Pad HD 7 sports a 1.2 Megapixel Cam on the front side and a 5 Megapixel-Cam on the back. The speakers are by SonicMaster-Technology and it is running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. The MeMO Pad HD 7 will be available in July in black, white, pink and green. Here’s our hands on video:
