    • BM0824 says:

      Hey sean, Asus Store @ SM North EDSA is already selling this, they even have live demo units, they only have 16gb, they are selling it @ 8,995

  2. sean says:

    Where can i buy this?

  3. sean says:

    Wer can i get this tab?

  4. Jesson says:

    You can get that Asus Memo Pad @ any SM Cyberzone. And in addition, compare with samsung galaxy tab, there wi-fi model, Asus Memo Pad memo pad comes better

  5. Pau Du says:

    Lithium Polymer battery? if you bought this pad, you should not overcharge it. Lithium Polymer batteries are the most dangerous batteries around because it ignites fast when overcharged and overheats.

    • DaWho says:

      That is why the chargers of LIPO batts have an automatic cut-off when the battery is full.

      For example No matter how long I charge my P6800 I can tell it stops charging when full because the charger gets cold afterwards.

      How can you overcharge gadgets like that?

    • daniel says:

      Really? Why is my phone not exploding? Charger gets hot when charging. When it reaches 100%, after a moment, it gets cool like what it was when unplugged. Xperia.

      maybe iPhones and Galaxy S3 are what you are talking about, exploding phones lol.

    • nhald says:

      @DaWho, What if you charge the pad through a usb port (if possible) and not using the charger provided? Then overcharging the battery is really possible, right?

    • HK-47 says:

      @nhald:
      Nope. They’re built into the devices themselves.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Pau Duh

      Please huwag magkalat ng katangahang impormasyon dahil ang nature ng mga Lithium batteries pag napuno, nagka-cut charge na…Nickel Cadmium lang ang nag-O-over charge bopols.

    • Eason says:

      Pau Du I think you mistaken it to just Plain polymer.

      Polymer is the dangerous battery found in 3310 but Li-Polymer is the new generation of batteries that are even more advanced than Li-Ion.

      Meaning No Overcharge and Longer Battery Life Cycle compared to Li-Ion.

    • Mogs says:

      It won’t overcharge but you can shorten the lifespan of the battery by not allowing it to discharge for too long.

  6. evolekdal says:

    wow, nearly 30% price increase ( 7k php to 9k php )
    to upgrade 8Gb to 16Gb internal storage.

    beat that, Apple!

    note : official asus announcement has the 8Gb model at 129 USD and the 16Gb model at 149 USD.

    not sure how 20 dollars get converted to 2k php

    • abuzalzal says:

      Uhm, Customs Tax ek ek etc?

      Gamitin naman ang utak bago pumutak

    • anon666 says:

      may tax na malamang…

    • john says:

      yes mahal nga siya.. overpriced eh.

    • Ryan says:

      Bumanat ka na naman AbuSALSAL. Ang point nya is yung $20 increase eh dpat ba 2k ang talon sa price pag dting d2. yung 8gig na 7k may tax na yun. dpat nsa 1k lang ang increase nun kpag $20 yung diff nla (including tax). masyadong mataas ung price ng asus ph. sabagay marketing strategy yun pra mabenta din yung 8gb at nde makain ng 16gb kung magkalapit lang price nla.

    • gamerpk says:

      ganun talaga ang asus, yung pinaka overpriced items nila ay yung mga videocard sa pc. nakakatuwang mga presyo usually 20-30% more expensive than other brands. pero tingnan mo sa US, yung asus na cards ay kasing presyo lang powercolor. LOL ASUS PH! putaenang mga gago!

    How does the screen respond to stylus?

  8. Pogito says:

    Just Saw this one in Taiwan I must say maganda build quality!!.. mukhang mamahalin.. im just after the 3G version sana good to go na, buti na lang I decided not to purchase kc 100php lang naman difference sa price.. and the colors of the back plate is nice…

  9. abuzalzal says:

    If it’s from ASUS , it must be glitchy

    The first N7 had issues, ditto the second gen. N7

    Buyers beware, don’t hop-in just yet…antay-antay muna baka ma-loko

    • Ely says:

      Asus, glitchy? As an Asus Transformer TF101 and Asus laptop user, I can say Asus makes the best hardware. Matibay and di pa nasisira, antagal na sa akin. I even recommend to my friends this brand and they are happy with it. Asus Nexus 7 2013 is even touted as the best Android tablet this year.

    • Justin says:

      I had a Nexus 7 (1st gen) and it served me well for more than a year. I sold it only to upgrade to the 2nd gen Nexus 7 which works fine also. Yes, the 1st N7 had issues, but it was only a handful from the first batch. The 2nd batch only had issues with the touch screen, but that was fixed with the latest OTA ROM upgrade from Google.

      Bakit? Akala mo ba yung ibang tablets hindi nagkaka-issue? Mga Samsung, iPad, lalo na yung minamahal mong Cherry Mobile. Lahat naman nun may mga rare cases na may slight defect ang certain units. Wala namang device na perfect, bro! In your own words, gamitin muna ang utak bago pumutak!

    • Justin says:

      Correction: “The 2nd batch only…” I meant “The 2nd gen only…”.

    • abuzalzal says:

      justin

      the OTA update never fixed the touchscreen glitch, it was a grounding flaw, well-documented yun sa Youtube at sa kalakhang internet, research research din pag may time…

    • Justin says:

      Either way, kaya nga may warranty, bro. At least yung mga nag-claim ng warranty coverage for their defective N7 units were able to get a replacement. Eh yung sa mga nag-cclaim ng warranty sa beloved Cherry Mobile mo? Kumusta na kaya sila ngayon?

      Let’s not veer away from your original post. Like I said, meron talagang lalabas na defective out of every product line. Which is why it is pointless to call one brand ‘glitchy’, when in fact all brands have their fair share of glitches.

    • DaWho says:

      Glitchy? How so?

      Because you read and saw some videos?

      What if, because of stiff competition nowadays, some brands (or some followers of some brands) decided to make fun (aka sabotage) of some other brands via online comments, articles, and videos?

      My 2006 notebook (brand: Across, motherboard: Asus Z62FP) is still functioning like brand new up to now.

      I bought an Asus 2nd-gen Nexus 7 last week, the 32gig variety. It was so good and so nice to use that I find myself using it more than my good old reliable P6800.

      Read. Think. Evaluate. Observe. Decide.

      Reading alone and following and, nay, believing blindly makes you an utu-uto.

      Peace.

    • wew says:

      uhhmm justin mejo mali ka tama ung sinabi mo na may isolated cases ng defects sa mga devices kahit wellknowd pa ung brand tulad ng apple,samsung,etc. pero wag mo isama ung cherry mobile LOL sa kanila ka lang makakakita ng maramihang units na depekto at hindi un nagkataon lang…talagang binebenta nila un kahit alam nilang may defect

  10. Ace says:

    I think its more logical to buy the 8gb version. I mean with 2grand you can already buy a 32gb memory card. Maxadong malayo ung price nila sa isat isa. Kung susumahin. Anyway its a good alternative sa first gen nexus7.

  11. Anon says:

    Ayus na ayos to sa student na tulad ko. Pero sana i-paraffle, hihihi.

    Hello, hello admin. :D

  12. Carl says:

    Sir Abe saang store nyo po nakita ung asus memo pad hd 7? Thanks!

  13. Smokescreen says:

    Parang ok for the price yun specs. I generally like Asus products.

  14. Shin says:

    Guys, does it also have a phone function? like you can insert simcard? =)

    looks like a really reasonably priced tablet! tempting! ipon ipon na.. hehe

  15. john says:

    The 16gb version is really very expensive. its original price is $149 when Asus revealed it in Computex. pero bakit naging 9k dito sa pilipinas? ok lang ba ang Asus PH? mula $149 naging $210? mag add ka nalang ng 20$ makakabili ka na ng 2013 nexus 7 ah. asus sacrificed many important features para aabot yan sa ganyang price point ang device na yan. like no hdmi port, no gorilla glass protection, no wireless charging, and overall cheap build quality and design. naalala ko pa nga nung nag live podcast ang unbox.ph eh, yung pinakita nilang memo pad hd 7 basag yung isang corner niya. nahulog daw kasi lol
    .pero bakit grabe magtubo ang Asus philippines sa gadget na to? i understand that there is 12% vat pero yung 60$ na tubo sa price niya is exaggerated. overpricing talaga. porket malakas ang demand ng device na yan pagsasamantalahan nila. hayz. mukhang yung 8gb nalang ang maafford ko lol. student lang kasi ako. excited pa naman talaga akong bilhin ang 16gb version niya :(

    • abuzalzal says:

      ”mag add ka nalang ng 20$ makakabili ka na ng 2013 nexus 7 ”

      LOL not so fast…hindi ganyan yan hijo, around Php15-Php17k pag nakarating na ang N7 base model dito

      kahit pustahan pa tayo hehe

    • abuzalzal says:

      Unsubsidized Google handsets are notorious for their high ”patong”….huwag mag expect na mura ang Nexus 7

    • Ryan says:

      Again, its marketing strategy. will you buy the 8gb if 800-1k lang diff nla sa 16gb?

    • apolfanboy says:

      Tama ka sir John.. Kasi kaibigan ku nka bili aroung 11k nang Nexus 2nd gen sa WidgetCityHub..

    • john says:

      @abusalsal the 16GB version of nexus 7 2013 with future proof specs is just 11k in kimstore. and i think the nexus 7 do have a global warranty so di ka matatakot kahit di pa talaga galing sa Asus PH ang device mo. and the 32GB first generation nexus 7 with mobile data is already selling for 9k in online stores. so kahit ako nagdadalawang isip kung bibilhin ko pa ito dahil sa sobrang laki ng presyo kahit yung specs niya ay pang low end(at least it has a decent display). sobrang disappointed talaga ako sa pricing ng Asus. kasi yung $199 galaxy tab 3 7.0 is 9k($209) lang dito sa atin. at least si Samsung Ph di nag ooverpriced kasi alam na nilang overpriced na ang gadgets nila. haha.

    • Jason says:

      As if other brands does not everprice as well? Can’t you see that the trend is not ASUS’ fault but the Philippines?

      You are correct abou the 12% vat but consider customs tax, NTC permits, importation tax and other government taxes as well that we might not even know about.

      Plus its not $20 apart from Nexus 7 cause we are not a google country. Just don’t compare prices in direct conversion it will just disappoint you in the end.

    • john says:

      @Jason ok pre. yung Galaxy tab 3 7.0 kasi is $199 sa US. pero $206(Php 9,000) lang siya dito nang binenta ni Samsung PHilippines. yes you are also right about the customs tax, NTC permits, importation tax and other hidden charges pero di naman talaga siguro $149 ang bili ng Asus PH ng product na yan mula sa Asus diba. they are the official distributor of Asus products here in the philippines so im sure sobrang laki ng discount na makukuha nila kapag magbenta man sila ng Asus products ito sa atin diba. so yung patong na $60 mula sa suggested price para sa mga emerging markets(like Philippines) is overpriced talaga :( well, kung ganyan ang pricing strategy ni Asus PH, wala na tayong magagawa.

  16. Noyg says:

    Am now in North EDSA 5F annex. No HD 7. Before announcing availability, ASUS should first put stock. All hype, no logistical support. Just lost one buyer.

    • Wave87 says:

      I also went to SM Megamall Cyberzone and no sign of Memo Pad HD7. I checked all stores, including Asus store.

      May nakita akong display ad in one store pero wala naman daw sila nung model. Lol.

      Where can I buy this?

    • Justin says:

      I went to villman megamall and they said their stocks are in the warehouse now so I already pre-ordered my which I can get either tonight or tomorrow morning.

    sorry correction… TABLET…. WAHAHAH…COMEDY lng… muah!!!

  19. Tsada Speaks says:

    I like the price but not the bezel size. Better yet, try it first if I can find this model sa Mall before deciding to buy or not.

    • Mike Larosa says:

      I highly recommend Gallant g79 mini pro. I own one and its really fast using latest rockchip, battery last long, very clear display with nice viewing angles,been using it for more than a month and never had any single problem.

    • jojo logs says:

      salamat po sa reply, any other brand that you can recommend? i was thinking king yung msi or yung acer iconia a1 , but reviews for this tablet was not good. but i might consider gallapad. sana meron pa po makapag recommend

    • Mike Larosa says:

      gallapad is ok pero hindi sya quad core, medyo luma na yung tegra 3 and its only 7 inches. kaya gallant g79 talga best recommendation ko since its working perfectly for me. check mo nalng website nila http://www.gallantech.us/product/pc-tablet-2/
