Over in Thailand, ASUS made the MeMo Pad 10 official at a mobile expo. The device, which we have seen and wrote about a couple of times, comes with a 10″ WXGA display, a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and slot for a microSD which allows for additional storage on top of all already present 16GB.

We know ASUS is king of the low-priced tablet market, given the popularity of the Nexus 7, but it seems that they just can’t help themselves from going lower and lower. They recently launched the 7″ MeMo Pad in Europe for about $150, and now there is new talk of an Intel-powered “ultra-budget” tablet. (more…)
This morning, ASUS’s budget-friendly MeMo Pad 7″ is finally official. We have seen plenty of render leaks and spec leaks, but we are sort of surprised that they have gone ahead and launched the device right before MWC. Either way, it’s out now, and the specs have not changed since we talked about them previously. (more…)
We scarcely speak of ASUS’s budget-friendly MeMo Pad lineup because frankly, we simply read our comments section. No one seems all that interested. But with these new press renders of the MeMo Pad 10 hitting the web, it sort of has us second guessing our own initial reactions to the lineup. I mean come on, look at that smooth backside. (more…)
There are technically no numbers to support this claim, but we think it’s safe to say that the Nexus 7 is easily the most popular Android tablet ever created. It matches the best of both worlds in hardware and software, plus it has that ridiculously awesome price tag that anyone could get happy about. When we start hearing news about the next iteration of this device from “upstream supply chains,” it’s time to get excited. (more…)
Care to save $10 on your Nexus 7 purchase? Groupon is currently running a deal for a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB version of the popular Android tablet, though we’re still trying to figure out if the $10 you would save over a brand new one is worth it. Remember that you can pick this tablet up from Google for $199, and no, it hasn’t been refurbished. That $199 is for a brand spankin’ new N7. There are times that refurbished models of products aren’t a bad thing, though. In fact, some believe that they tend to be better, as the manufacturer has had time to fine-tune any issues in refurbished models that were once plaguing new builds.
Cheers NCSUgolfer01 and Tim!
Hey, would you look at that – the official Nexus 7 dock is real! I say that for a couple of reasons actually, mostly over the fact that Nexus accessories are always on display during unveilings, yet almost never make it to customers hands or become any sort of a reality outside of Google’s campus. The second reason being that we have seen this thing push through delay after delay before finally appearing on random electronics outlets (which I purchased this one from). Enough complaining, though, let’s talk about the dock and its $40 price tag. (more…)
It was the original ASUS MeMo 7 that ended up becoming Google’s best selling Android tablet to-date, the Nexus 7. After that disappeared we weren’t sure that we would see another tablet from the MeMo line until recently when the 7″ low-end tablet was re-announced. If you were looking to be blown away by specs though, that tablet was not for you. However, a new 10″ MeMo Pad has surfaced and is looking to be better equipped. (more…)
