ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 hits the local market

Are you in the market for a budget-friendly Android tablet? If you are then you have got to check out this new offering from ASUS — the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7! This tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek quad-core processor and 1GB RAM which should deliver an enjoyable Android Jelly Bean experience. As the name implies, it also has an HD 7-inch display (1280 x 800 pixels). Best of all is the price — the 8GB model (expandable storage via microSD) sells for just Php6,995.

Here’s a rundown of the specifications:

  • Mediatek MTK 8125 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB/16GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card
  • 7.0-inches IPS LCD display @ 800×1280 pixels, 216ppi

  • 1.2-megapixel secondary camera

Not bad right? The price is actually kinda cool. Anyway, we were able to play around with a unit when the Marketing Manager of ASUS, the lovely Miss Jamie, guested on our podcast. We’ve embedded the full episode below for your viewing pleasure.

We’ll try to get our hands on the final commercial unit so we can do an unboxing and review. This definitely deserves our attention since we get a lot of inquiries on what’s the best low-budget Android tablet we can recommend. This is potentially it!
