ASUS Launches the MeMO Pad™

    The new MeMO Pad™ is designed to go wherever you go

    Fremont, CA (January 13, 2013) - ASUS is excited to introduce the MeMO Pad™, a stylish and capable 7-inch Android tablet designed for mobile consumers looking for a high-quality yet remarkably affordable tablet. With a starting MSRP of $149 (US), the ASUS MeMO Pad™ features Android™ 4.1 and offers full support for Google Play so you can choose from over 750,000 apps and games, browse the world's largest eBookstore, search millions of songs, watch thousands of the latest and greatest movies and TV shows, and even flip through your favorite magazines*. Available in three colors – Sugar White, Titanium Gray and Cherry Pink — MeMO Pad™ sports an elegant, non-slip diamond-patterned finish in a thin and lightweight design.
    Created for both work and play
    ASUS MeMO Pad™ runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU and a Mali-400 GPU for a smooth and fluid entertainment experience. It features a 10-point multi-touch LED-backlit display with 1024 x 600 resolution, 140-degree wide viewing angles, and its 350-nit brightness means images remain clear, even outdoors. MeMO Pad™ also features ASUS SonicMaster audio and MaxxAudio for high-quality sound.

    ASUS MeMO Pad™ offers up to 16GB of internal storage, which can be supplemented by up to 32GB via the MicroSD card slot. A suite of ASUS applications are also pre-installed, including SuperNote Lite, BuddyBuzz, ASUS WebStorage with 5GB of online storage space, ASUS Studio and WebStorage Office for enhanced productivity.
