ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad launches in the U.S. for $149.99
Back in February, we passed along a video that showed off features of the ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad. For example, ASUS Studio lets you use your finger to edit and tag your pictures. Buddy Buzz does what it sounds like, which is to track all of your social networks in one location. My Painter lets you become an artist on the fly, and if you need to write a note or are in the mood to doodle, SuperNote Lite lets you type, write or scribble anywhere, anytime. And with WebStorage Online Office, you can create, edit, view and share office files.

The 16GB ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad is just $149.99 in the U.S.

The 16GB ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad is just $149.99 in the U.S.

The ASUS 7 inch MeMo Pad is another in a long list of 7 inch low priced Android tablets. At $149.99, the slab actually comes in $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'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.

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.
