ASUS debuts $149 7-inch MeMO Pad running Android 4.1

Price is quickly becoming a priority in this race to the bottom for Android tablets and ASUS has now added to the affair with an $149 USD tablet of their own. The MeMO Pad has been announced for debut this month in “selected markets.” There will also be a US variant arriving in April that will include support for Hulu Plus, Netflix and HBO Go.

The 7 inch tablet features a 1024×600 resolution TN panel running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The VIA WM8950 SoC is present; which includes a 1 GHz single-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and an ARM Mali-400 GPU. Memory size is a respectable 1 GB. The 8 or 16 GB of internal storage will be expandable through a microSD card.

Camera duties are covered by a  1 MP front sensor capable of 720p video capture. Battery life will reach 7 hours with a 4270 mAh battery. The ASUS MeMO Pad will be available in a variety of colours including Sugar White, Titanium Gray and Cherry Pink.

KitGuru says: Based off of these specification we would recommend spending an extra $50 on the Nexus 7. Regardless we're sure the MeMO Pad will find a niche market at the lower-end of the Android tablet market.
