Asus Announces New MeMo Pad HD 7 and MeMo Pad FHD 10 Tablets, Starting at $129

MeMo Pad

At this year’s Computex, ASUS unveiled a full lineup of new Android tablets, including two new MeMo Pads, the HD 7 and FHD 10. Both are entry-level devices, bringing decently capable specs, but also featuring some low price tags. While the previous MeMo Pad models were somewhat of a joke in terms of specs in order to keep the price as low as possible, these new devices don’t seem that bad at all. 

The HD 7, starting at just $129 for 8GB, features a quad-core CPU, a 7″ HD display and a 5MP camera. The FHD 10 comes with the new Intel Atom Z2560 chipset, a 10″ 1920 x 1200 Full HD IPS panel, and ASUS’ proprietary SonicMaster audio technology. The price for the FHD 10 has not been set yet, but much like the HD 7, you can expect ASUS to do their best at keeping it low and desirable.

The HD 7 is scheduled for a July launch, but for those wanting the FHD 10, you will need to wait until September.

    I was really interested in the HD 7 until others started reporting it will have ICS out of the box, and availability date is unknown. Please tell us that’s the official ASUS press release cited above…

    One other budget priced tablet to launch this week that’s worth looking at is the new Novo 8 Discovery tablet by Ainol Electronics which is priced at $169 at T a b le t Sp r i n t– and compares in size to the current iPad mini and this new model matches most features of the upcoming Acer Iconia A1 but at a more competitive price and features, that include a more powerful battery (5000 mAh) as well as twice the Memory… and offers a Quad Core processor, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0… and is also one of the first Android tablets to offer Miracast HD Wireless capability, which is similar to Apple’s $100 AirPlay system to provide wireless connection to any HDTV with high resolution 1080p HD — ideal for streaming movies (including NetFlix), and to play 3G games on a Big Screen TV using the tablet as a motion control device, as well as to display any other tablet and web content in HD… essentially turning an HDTV into a multimedia computer console– T ablet Sprint also features the new CloudNetGo Miracast HD wireless adapter ($45) which became available last week, and is less than half the price of most other Miracast HD Wireless systems on the market, which are currently priced around $100–

      Thanks for the ad. I have an Anol. The Launcher crashes, the tech support is clueless (when you first talk to them) and then incommunicative. It plays high-end games slower than my 2-year-old single core phone. The touch screen is wonky on a good day. Definitely one to avoid.

  • S2556

    I will be following these. Great for the price!

  • j

    spec vs price looks pretty effin good.

  • Kyle Cordiano

    This is what the Memo 7 should have been from the start.

  • dmagicp

    The HTC One is coming to Verizon. Let’s talk about THAT!

  • Stnkycheezman

    Oh the Nexus 7 and 10 “S” is out!

    I’m actually way more interested in the Transformer Book Trio.

  • Shane Redman

    New Nexus7??? Don’t worry, I’ll wait……..

  • EC8CH

    What’s that extra button that looks like the home button do?

  • JJHeehee

  • DroidzFX

    user: mumbles….. Memo

    stranger: You say Nemo?

    user: I said MeMo.

    Stranger: yeah….nevermind.

    • DroidzFX

      cmon it was funny. If i had the tablet i would not tell people what it was called.

    • sagisarius

      That was funny… but I think it rhymes with demo, not Nemo.

  • JJHeehee

    Very nice. I’m impressed with the specs for that price.

    • turdbogls
