ASUS announces the MeMO Pad, a 7-inch Jelly Bean tablet for $149

ASUS waited until after CES to take the wraps off its MeMo Pad, and what it lacks in specs the Nexus 7 lookalike makes up for in price. With a wallet-friendly MSRP of $149, the MeMo Pad runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU and Mali-400 GPU.

The device sports a 10-point multi-touch LED-backlit display with 1024 by 600 resolution, 8 or 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot which will let you boost capacity by an additional 32GB.

The MeMo Pad has a front-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture that’s capable of recording 720p video at 30fps, ASUS SonicMaster audio and MaxxAudio, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a Micro-USB port for charging/synching. The device is powered by a 4270mAh battery.

The tablet comes bundled with a suite of ASUS applications that includes SuperNote Lite, BuddyBuzz, ASUS WebStorage with 5GB of online storage space, ASUS Studio and WebStorage Office.

The MeMO Pad will be available in Sugar White, Titanium Gray and Cherry Pink, and arrives in the US from April.
