ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad launches in the U.S. for $149.99
$50 cheaper than the ASUS manufactured Google Nexus 7. But you really can't compare the two slates to each other because the Google Nexus 7 uses a quad-core 1.2GHz processor versus the single-core 1GHz processor on the cheaper MeMo Pad. The Google Nexus 7 also has a higher resolution screen.
The ASUS 7 inch MeMo tablet is filled with 16GB of native storage and can be purchased in the U.S. at places like GameStop, and Amazon. An 8GB variant of the tablet at an even lower price is not available in the U.S. and at this point, there is no sign that it will ever touch down in the states. Android 4.1 is installed on the device, right out of the box.

You need a dual core processor at minimum regardless of the price.

it has an Atom , nearly capable as a mid range dual core processor

It's not an Intel Atom. It's a VIA Wonder Media processor. The new Intel Atom processor is impressive, this however is not an Atom.

The single core atom cpu is better than most dual core cpus out there. forget about dual, single, quad, ghz, mah,.. Specs mean little, benchmarks speak volumes.

Single core 1ghz what is this 2009? Just pay the money and get the nexus 7 it's worth It.. i like asus but this release is pointless

No matter how cheap it is...anything less than a 720p screen is a no-go....and this one is a fine example of an ultra skimped tablet.
