Asus have gone all out at Computex this year. They have unveiled a surprising number of new products and upgrades including the new MeMO Pad HD 7 and the MeMO Pad FHD 10.
The MeMO Pad HD 7 offers surprisingly good features for a budget device. It has a 7-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor, and offers 10 hours of battery life. Other features include 1 GB RAM, a 5 MP back-facing camera, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB internal storage, a MicroSD slot, and high quality stereo speakers. The much-needed upgrade to the Taiwanese company's 7-inch device puts it back in line with newer budget tablets such as the Hisense Pro.
The Pad HD 7 will run Android 4.2 and cost about US$149 including a cover that converts into a stand. A cheaper version with 8 GB of storage will be made available in developing countries for US$129. Global release of the MeMO Pad HD 7 is expected sometime in July.
The new Pad FHD 10 is an upcoming higher end product. The tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor, is only 9.5 mm (0.37”) thick, and weighs just 580g (1.28 pounds). It offers an impressive 1920 x 1200 IPS display, Miracast, and both 16GB or 32GB storage options.
Prices and availability, as well as full technical specifications for the MeMO Pad FHD 10 have not yet been announced.
