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. 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.

    1. 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. :/

  2. 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
