ASUS announces the $129 MeMO Pad HD 7 tablet

In a bid to attract more customers and market-share in the 7-inch tablet category, ASUS comes up with its own MeMO Pad HD 7.

The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-touting ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 seems to be competing with Google’s Nexus 7, which happens to be made by them too. It sports a 7-inch IPS display with a 1280x800 resolution, a huge improvement over the display of the first MeMO Pad. Powering the tablet is a quad-core processor coupled with a 1GB of RAM.

The MeMO Pad HD 7 features ASUS’ own SonicMaster audio technology to deliver a richer and more enhanced sound output. What sets it apart from the Nexus 7 is the camera. Unlike the Nexus 7 which only has a camera on the front, the MeMO Pad HD 7 packs two — a 1.2 Megapixel on the front and a 5 Megapixels main shooter on the rear.

While the exact capacity wasn’t mentioned, ASUS says the MeMO Pad HD 7 can last up to 10 hours of 720p HD video playback, which is quite impressive considering this is just an entry-level tablet (based on the price).

Speaking of the pricing, the company says the MeMO Pad HD 7 will retail for just $129 for the 8GB model and $149 for the 16GB model. It will be available in emerging markets starting on July.
