Asus confirms Memo Pad HD 7, starts at $129
This is probably the most exciting revelation to us in this year’s Computex since it’s the one which we predicted to be true from our last week’s rumor/leak — the Asus Memo Pad HD 7.
The Memo Pad HD 7 technically succeed’s Asus’ Nexus 7 device in partnership with Google.
Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 specs:
7.0 inch IPS LCD display @ 1280×800 pixels, 215ppi
Mediatek 1.5GHz quad-core processor
8GB and 16GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5MP rear camera
1.2MP front-facing camera
Asus Sonic Master Audio
Android Jellybean 4.2
120.6 x 196.8 x 10.8mm (dimensions)
302 grams (weight)
The device is only 302g light and has a very similar form factor as the old model. We were also correct with our prediction of colors — black, white, blue, pink and yellow. Battery life is up to 10 hours.
Asus is planning to sell the 16GB model for $149 and a limited 8GB model for $129 to be released in emerging markets this July 2013.
