ASUS’ latest entry into the sub-$200 tablet market is now available for purchase. Not quite as powerful as the ASUS-made Nexus 7, the MeMo Pad comes in $50 cheaper. For $150 you get a 7-inch tablet with a single-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, and 1MP front-facing camera. The price also scores 16GB of internal storage.
An Android 4.1 device, the MeMo Pad is like a budget version of the budget tablet is borrows heavily from in terms of design. It isn’t quite a Nexus 7 (and will be even less so if rumors of a new version of the Google-branded tablet pan out), but has plenty going for it considering the price.
