The Android-powered MeMO Pad™ HD 7 is just $149

There are some 7-inch Android tablets that can be had for less than US$100, some for just US$70. And virtually all the ones I’ve seen in stores are crappy, from no-name manufacturers. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

But prices of these smaller tablets from industry leaders have been creeping lower. HP’s Slate 7 is just US$169, and Google’s Nexus 7 is just on the other side of US$200 – US$229 to be exact.

Now, ASUS has started selling an Android tablet of the same size for less than the price of the Nexus 7 and Slate 7. The MeMO Pad™ HD 7, which hit store and digital shelves yesterday, can be yours for just US$149.

Besides a 10-hour battery life, the MeMO Pad™ HD 7 also comes with these features:

  • 1.2 GHz MediaTek MT8125 Quad-core processor
  • 7-inch HD 1280 x 800 multi-touch IPS display
  • 16GB Storage, 1 microUSB 2.0 port, 1 micro SDHC media reader
  • Digital 5-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front camera
  • Stereo speakers with SonicMaster technology
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and Built-in wireless LAN (802.11b/g/n)
  • Miracast™ Certified Wireless Display Technology

That’s more connectivity than Google’s Nexus 7. The only thing that’s missing is a microHDMI port. Here are some screen shots of the MeMO Pad™ HD 7. It is available for purchase at major online stores.
