ASUS MeMO Pad HD7 Announced With A $129 Price Tag, Along With The FHD 10
Asus is on a roll here. After announcing an entire lineup of new products, it has now unveiled the Asus MeMO Pad HD7 and the Asus MeMO Pad FHD 10.
While the Asus MeMO Pad HD7 retains much of the same design (and most of the same name) as that of its predecessor, it is tweaked a bit to make it both thinner and lighter than it’s predecessor — down to 10.8mm thick and 302g in weight. On the display side ASUS bumps things to “HD” with a 1280×800 IPS display, up from the original 1024×600 panel.
On the inside, the Asus MeMO Pad HD7 is running an ARM Cortex A7 quad-core CPU, but didn’t specify a clock speed or manufacturer. It did specify that the tablet will have both Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, however, along with the addition of stereo speakers and a 5MP rear camera (keeping a 1.2MP shooter up front). Pinning this device at the low-end are some appealing prices too: 16GB for $149, 8GB for $129. The MeMO Pad HD7 will be released in a few different bright color options, with no specific sales dates given at this point.
The Asus MeMO Pad FHD 10, meanwhile, runs on the Intel Atom Z2560 processor, also known as Clovertrail+, with a dual-core 1.2GHz Saltwell CPU and PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 GPU. It also has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, 2GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage, 5 megapixel rear camera with auto-focus, 1.2 megapixel front camera, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a 10-hour battery life.
