Looking for a budget WiFi-only tablet but don’t want to take risks with those China-made tablets with little to no local support? Why not settle for the 7-inch ASUS Memo Pad which has silently made its way to local our local stores for just Php6,995?
The ASUS Memo Pad is the less-impressive version of the Google Nexus 7 but with a more budget-friendly price. It sports a single-core 1GHz VIA processor to go with 1GB of RAM to run an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
Internal storage is limited at 8GB but there’s room for more via a microSD slot plus a lifetime 5GB space from ASUS Webstorage. Like the Nexus 7, the Memo Pad doesn’t have a rear camera. It’s front camera is limited to 1-megapixel which is still good for HD video calling.
It’s really a tablet designed for casual use so temper your expectations if you’re planning to use this to watch your Full HD movies or play those high-end Android games. It should appeal to students out there with its youthful colors: Sugar White, Titanium Gray, and Cherry Pink.
The ASUS Memo Pad is already available in stores (like Villman) for Php6,995.
