Asus MeMo Pad: Android 4.1 tablet to compete with Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD

The Asus MeMo Pad is another budget tablet to compete against the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.

CES perhaps wasn’t as Android-friendly as many were expecting, but that didn’t stop it providing an array of upcoming budget tablets. The Asus MeMo Pad is the next on the list of budget goodies, sporting a basic 7″ 1024×600 screen that works out to be a 170ppi pixel density.

It includes a single-core ARM A9 processor that runs alongside 1GB of RAM, and either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. One of the key differences between this device and similarly priced tablets, is that the MeMo pad will come with an expandable storage slot of up to 16GB. There’s also a 1-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.

On the software side of things, the Asus MeMo Pad will be running a slightly altered version of Android 4.1 out of the box, with Asus also providing free cloud storage to all users.

Priced at $149, the MeMo Pad is certainly well poised to make an impact in the budget tablet market, and although it doesn’t include the dazzling specs of the Nexus 7, the Asus name should help it do well. No news on release date as of yet.
