Asus announced a whole bunch of new Android devices during its Computex press conference, and the MeMO Pad HD 7 was one of them. The little brother of the MeMO Pad FHD 10, if you will, is a super affordable 7-inch slate meant to be offered in developing markets later this year.
Priced at $130 or $150 for the 8- or 16-gigabyte version respectively, the Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 comes with a 1280 by 800 pixel IPS display, a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, which is good to hear. Specs like these aren't exactly typical for low-cost tablets. What SoC is used for the device isn't known yet.
There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion present on the tablet, and its battery is rated for 10 hours of video playback. Software-wise, we have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running on the MeMO Pad HD 7.
So yeah, the Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 is shaping up like a great option for users on a very tight budget. It will be available in black, white, pink or green once it launches on the market in July.

"quad-core Cortex A7 processor" = Mediatek a7 turbo 1.5ghz That chip scores a 15000-16000 in antutu so this won't be bad at all!
