ASUS Eee Pad MeMo now in the Philippines

The ASUS Eee Pad MeMo 171 now being sold in the Philippines

I’ll never understand the naming convention of a lot of tech brands. Some are just not sexy at all and the name itself will scare off a lot of potential customers despite the good specs and value. I personally think that’s the case for the ASUS Eee Pad MeMo 171. This tablet actually looks awesome and runs on powerful components but I don’t think it will sell well since a lot of people won’t even understand the name.

Anyway, check out the specs and pricing below.

ASUS Eee Pad MeMo Spec Sheet:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM, 16GB Storage
  • 7-inch display, 800×1280 pixels, ~216 ppi
  • 5-megapixel rear camera, auto-focus, 1080p video
  • 1.2-megapixel front camera
  • 4,400mAh battery
  • OS: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Comes with a Stylus (built-in stylus holder)

SRP is Php19,995. Again like what we said earlier that’s not a bad price. It’s a seriously good 7-inch tablet that runs Android 4.0 ICS already. Hopefully people will get over the weird name and buy this.

  1. For a 7-inch tablet with a stylus, it certainly is a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note.

    But then, there’s Google’s Nexus 7 priced at $199…

    The Nexus 7 looks very good but it is unlikely to be $200.00 peso equivalent when it gets here in the Philippines. I’m guessing it will be in the 12,000 pesos range ($285.00 with all those taxes including “it is a new item tax”).

    This Asus memo 171 is not bad with 3G/rear camera/stereo speakers/microSD. It will compete with the Samsung galaxy 7s. Unfortunately ASUS (or perhaps PC Express) removed the MeMic bluetooth accessory (that is standard in other countries) from the Philippines version.

    • With the demand for the Nexus 7 it will really be a while before we see it “officially” here in the PH. I doubt we’ll be able to get it even in the Php10,000-Php12,000 range. :/

  3. If you would look closely, this is much better than Nexus 7 (running on Android Jellybean) since this EeePad Memo has 5MP camera compared to 3MP with Nexus
