ASUS MeMo Pad gets introduced post CES
Even though CES 2013 is over, it doesn't mean that the parade of new devices comes to an end. Take the ASUS MeMo Pad which has just been introduced. The 7 inch tablet offers resolution of 1024 x 600. That is the same resolution that can be found on the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 and works out to a 170ppi pixel density. Other specs include the Mali 400 GPU which takes care of the graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 16GB of native storage and a 1MP front-facing camera. And the best part is that Android 4.1 is installed on the device right out of the box.

While ASUS did not reveal a model number for the tablet, this could be the ME172V which showed up on GL Benchmarks. At various times, the tablet was rumored to be sold for $99 or $129, but as it turns out, the device in question will be priced at $150. It is another low priced 7 inch Android tablet that has become a quite popular genre for tablet OEMs and tablet buyers alike.

One last note. Unlike the line of ASUS tablets that transform inro a laptop by connecting to a QWERTY dock, the ASUS MeMo Pad is a tablet only. That actually might be good news. After all, there is that old saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
