Asus has launched the MeMO Pad ME 172V Android Jelly Bean Tablet in India for Rs 9,999. While the tablet is distinctively similar to the Google Nexus 7, in terms of hardware design it is a notch lower in terms of internal specifications.
It has a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels, a 1GHz single core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4,325 mAh battery, a 1-megapixel front facing camera and it is offered with 8GB of internal memory . Thankfully, Asus offers a microSD card slot so memory expansion is possible.
Asus bundles 5GB of webstorage and offers the device in three colors – Pink, White and Grey.
The MeMO Pad will join the ranks of the Acer Iconia B1, which also has similar specifications, however it does have a dual-core CPU made by MediaTek so it will be interesting to see how the Memo Pad performs in real world scenarios.
