Asus unveils latest MeMo Pad, ME172 pegged at just $150


After all the craziness that was CES, Asus has decided to quietly launch their latest MeMo Pad, the ME172. This particular tablet is aimed at developing markets (like ours) and is priced at an extremely attractive price of just $150. Of course, at that price point, something has to give, and that something is the display, processor and storage options – this particular tablet will only be running a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU and a Mali-400 GPU with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It’ll be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box. The ME172’s current spec sheet pales in comparison to their Nexus 7 offering, but the $150 (Php 6095) price point is enticing. Of course it’ll be priced a little bit higher when it hits the local market, unfortunately Asus Philippines has not commented on how much it’ll really be when it hits the Philippines.
