The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 has been made absolutely official by ASUS with a new page on their site and an ad showing off some of the features they put into the budget tablet. The MeMO Pad will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will feature a 7″ display they claim is HD but really isn’t. It’s a 1024×600 display (compared to the Nexus 7s 1280×800 display). It’ll also have a 1MP front facing HD camera and a microSD card slot (which is a great addition). There are no specs on hardware, unfortunately. Here are the rest of the specs:
- Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 7 ’’ HD display with 10-finger mult-touch (1024×600, 169 PPI)
- 7 hours of battery life for all-day computing
- 358g light and 11.2mm thin with colorful design
- Front HD camera to stay connected with online chatting
- Micro-SD slot with support for up to 32GB extra storage
- ASUS WebStorage to view, edit and save Microsoft Office files online
In the video, they show off all of their proprietary apps like BuddyBuzz (misspelled BudyBuzz in the video), a social network app that combines a bunch of social networks into one. There are also floating apps in a near identical implementation to Samsungs in the original Tab 10.1.
It’s basically a Nexus 7 with an older version of Android, a lot more software tricks up its sleeve, and far worse hardware. But for a rumored $150 price tag, it isn’t so bad. What do you guys think? Is it a worthy tablet? Can the software redeem it? Tell us in the comments!
