7-inch Asus MeMO Pad now available in the US for $149

The 7-inch Asus MeMO Pad tablet can now be purchased in the US. It is one of the cheapest brand-name Android tablets ever made, as it can be yours for just $149. As you’d expect though, for that price there are a few pretty big caveats.

The biggest of those is probably the fact that this MeMO Pad has a VIA single-core 1 GHz processor. For just $50 more you can get an Asus Nexus 7 which comes with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Sure, $50 may seem like a lot in terms of percentage points (after all, it is a third more than the $149 that the MeMO Pad goes for), but it’s definitely worth it.

The Nexus 7 also has a higher-resolution touchscreen than the 7″ MeMO Pad, and better software support as it comes directly from Google. It doesn’t, however, come with a microSD card slot like the MeMO Pad, so if for some reason that really is a must for you, then the Nexus 7 isn’t a good choice.

Anyway, if you want to buy a 7-inch Asus MeMO Pad tablet, you should go to Amazon or GameStop right now and do just that. The device is available in grey, white, or pink for the exact same price.
