ASUS’ $160 MeMo Pad Finally Hits Retailers, Think Nexus 7 Minus the Good Stuff

MeMo Pad

If you happen to be in the market for an affordable Android tablet, plus you don’t find yourself worrying about the amount of cores your processor has or what your display’s pixel density is, then maybe check out ASUS’ new 7″ MeMo Pad.

For those familiar, and if you are reading this site I would hope you are very familiar, think of it as a Nexus 7 tablet minus a few of the specs. The MeMo pad rocks a 1GHz single-core VIA WM8950 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a 1-megapixel front-facing shooter and Android 4.1.  

It may not sound like much, but they are offering the device at just $160. However, keep in mind you can spend an additional $40 and get yourself a 16GB Nexus 7. Needless to say, nothing wrong with having some options while shopping.

Buy. ($160)

Cheers Ryan and Scott!

    I so wanted to like this tablet. I have a Nexus 7 and my wife wants a tablet of her own. She is far less picky on specs and she absolutely loves PINK. But SINGLE CORE? I really just can’t do that to her. After playing with my N7 I think even she would be disappointed by this thing.

    ok…so close to the n7 in price…maybe would get for a kid if it was $120 tops…. hell three post below you can get a 32gb n7 for only $199. and a new one coming in a few months

    A much better deal is the new Novo 7 Venus… an Android tablet for $149 that’s available in the U.S. through a site called TabletSprint — and compares closely to the Nexus 7 — featuring a Quad Core processor and 1280×800 HD IPS Screen, while also offering a 2-Megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, and an HDMI 1080p port; plus 3G internet connection through its USB port, all of which aren’t featured on the Nexus 7.

    Also launched recently by the same manufacturer is the Novo 10 Hero II – a Full Size, 10.1 inch tablet for only $219 that also features a Quad Core processor and a 1280×800 IPS screen, along with 16GB memory, a strong battery (8000 mAH), front and rear cameras, a MicroSD slot, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, Google Play preinstalled – with access to 400K+ software Apps, a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, HDMI – to view personal videos and download movies to watch in full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV, WiFi, and an option for 3G/4G connection. TabletSprint also offers a Compact Case with built-in Keyboard for both tablets for around $25, which easily transforms a tablet into a mini-laptop.

    Both tablets are made by Ainol Electronics – which won runner up for “Best Tablet of the Year” 2012 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – and the site TabletSprint also offers $25 in Bonus Apps; as well as features a promotion with a free 500MB monthly Data plan for 3G internet access that includes a free 3G USB adapter.

    WAIT, hold on, single-core? Is this CES 2011 again? How expensive can a S3 dual-core, or even a S4 dual-core?

  • skinja

    Too bad the screen resolution isn’t just a little bit better.
    And I thought it was supposed to retail for $150 ??

      Where are two home buttons?

      • Relic419

        A settings icon that looks like a “house”. Intredasting.

    Is it April fools again? Put an Apple logo on it and you could sell it as the iPad mini 2 for $350.

      my friend’s mother makes $73 every hour on the internet. She has been without work for six months but last month her pay was $14489 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on  Fab99.c­om

      That’s the best part. People are paying $350 for a tablet that is worse than a $200 one.
