ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 Android tablet (preview)


The MeMo Pad HD 7 is a very similar device to the Nexus 7 but with the addition of a 5-megapixel camera

Very low price ; Rear facing camera ; Light weight

Wi-Fi only ; No real wow factor

The ASUS Memo Pad HD 7 is a very similar device to the Nexus 7 but with the addition of a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. It will become one of the cheapest tablets on the market.

Review: Asus Memo Pad HD 7


Compact tablets are the technology industry's newest commodity items, and the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 is the latest addition. As you can probably guess from the name, it's a 7in tablet and, like most recent compact tablets, it comes in below $200.

A solid budget tablet with a very fine display.

Does what I want it to do


Plays my music, shoots and records my photos and videos, sends my emails and photos, gives me the latest news and weather, lets me get and use my favorite apps, all at a great price. Couldn't be happier with such a versital tablet.

Consumer review (

Over temp battery warning


It was a good little device until it kept flashing a warning the battery was over temp - asking that the battery be removed (which is impossible as it is sealed). Keeps shutting down - The price was too good to be true and ASUS is not easy to deal with.
