Remember the Asus MeMO Pad that came out in April? Yeah, it's totally old-hat now. As Liliputing reports, a new model dubbed the MeMO Pad HD 7 has gone up for pre-order at major U.S. e-tailers. Shipping is scheduled for next week.
The MeMO Pad HD 7 is a lot like its non-HD predecessor, except it trades the 1024x600 screen for a 1280x800 one, and it replaces the 1GHz, single-core VIA system-on-a-chip with a 1.2GHz, quad-core MediaTek MT8125. Other improvements include the addition of Android 4.2, Bluetooth 4.0, and a five-megapixel rear camera. Battery life has increased from 7 to 10 hours, the weight has gone down from 0.82 lbs to 0.67 lbs, and the new tablet is a little thinner than its predecessor, at 0.4" instead of 0.44".
Asus has set the MeMO Pad HD 7's price tag at $149, which is exactly how much the original MeMO Pad 7 cost in April. The older tablet is now available at a $50 discount for just $99. That's all rather inexpensive, when you consider that Amazon's cheapest Kindle Fire retails for $159, and Google's new Nexus 7 starts at $229.
