Reviews for the Asus Memo Pad Smart 10 ME301T
Clever and smart? Asus equips its new 10.1-inch tablet with a quad-core processor and special speakers. The tablet is available in three different colors and retails for an affordable 299 Euros (~$380). Is the "Smart" in the name really appropriate?

The most impressive thing about the ASUS MeMO Pad Smart 10 is that it streets for around $280, yet it offers a 10.1-inch IPS display, Tegra 3 processor, and a thin and light design. It even looks like a premium tablet, plastic back notwithstanding. You don't get to that price point on a 10.1-inch slate without making some sacrifices, and the biggest one is screen resolution, which checks in at just 1280x800.

The MeMo Pad ME301T isn’t designed to be the best tablet around — it’s designed to be one of the best available for a certain price, and it succeeds at at that. But if you can afford a $299 tablet you might able able to afford a $399 tablet… in which case you can get a whole lot more tablet for your money.

However, competitors like the Google Nexus 10 or the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 are alternatives you should consider when shopping for a cheap 10 inch Android tablet. But I really feel that with proper pricing, the MemoPad Smart can be an excellent option as well.
