Asus shows off new MeMO Pad 7 in promo video
Monday 04th of February 2013
Credit: Asus Asus unveiled the new 7-inch MeMO Pad without fanfare just days after CES ended, so it’s clear that the Taiwanese company is not planning to make the affordable tablet its flagship in 2013.Still, Asus isn’t keeping the MeMO Pad completely out of the spotlight. Today, to go with the official launch of the device, Asus released a promo video for the new MeMO Pad.The video highlights some of the MeMO Pad’s strong suits, under the tagline “Delight Me More”. Among the features, we can mention the HD front camera, the microSD card slot, but also some of the apps that Asus pre-loaded on the device.Some might dismiss these apps as bloatware, but at least the multi-window multitasking is quite interesting. Called Floating App, the feature resembles Samsung’s implementation, but is limited to a small number of applications for now: browser, video, sticky memo, email, calendar, and countdown.It’s obvious that Asus is attempting to push the MeMO Pad as a productivity device, with another highlight of the MeMO Pad being the 5GB of free web storage that Asus is throw
ASUS MeMO Pad HD7 announced: A slight upgrade to the low-end offering
Monday 03rd of June 2013
Bumps in CPU, storage, display and camera with the same bargain bin pricingAs part of its Computex 2013 keynote presentation, ASUS rolled out a small but notable update to its recently announced MeMO Pad -- this time adding "HD7" to the name and making important improvements. While it retains much of the same design (and most of the same name), the MeMOPad HD7tweaks the design a bit to make it both thinner and lighter than it's predecessor -- down to 10.8mm thick and 302g in weight. On the display side ASUS bumps things to "HD" with a 1280x800 IPS display, up from the original 1024x600 panel.On the inside, ASUS says the MeMO Pad HD7 is running an ARM Cortex A7 quad-core CPU, but didn't specify a clock speed or manufacturer. It did specify that the tablet will have both Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, however, along with the addition of stereo speakers and a 5MP rear camera (keeping a 1.2MP shooter up front). Pinning this device at the low-end are some appealing prices too: 16GB for $149, 8GB for $129. The MeMO Pad HD7 will be released in a few different bright col
ASUS Memo Pad HD7 Up For Pre-Order At Amazon, Gamestop, Newegg, And TigerDirect For $150
Thursday 01st of August 2013
The new Nexus 7 is pretty awesome in all respects, and it should be right at the top of your list if you're looking for a 7-inch tablet. But if your budget won't stretch up to $230, ASUS has a more low-end model that's perfectly respectable. The Memo Pad HD7 (ME173X) is an upgrade to last year's budget tablet, and it's up for pre-order at no less than four, count 'em, four US online stores. The retail price is $149.99. The HD7 features a 1.2Ghz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage plus a MicroSD card reader, a 5MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front-facing cam, and the standard 1280x800 resolution. Best of all, it runs Android 4.2 (which is by no means a given on budget hardware) plus some customized ASUS additions. It's definitely not the fastest gun in the west, but if all you want to do is read, surf, and maybe play some light games, it should suit your needs. Which vendor you buy from will depend on how fast you want your tablet, and in which color. Gamestop says that the Memo Pad HD7 launches on August 9th in blue, white, and pink colors. Newegg's stock is going
ASUS MeMO Pad HD7 review
Tuesday 06th of August 2013
A tablet stuck between a price point and a hard place.ASUS is a huge name in the Android tablet space, and while it may be best known for its "Transformer" tablet line and Google'sNexus 7,it also produces a more budget-centric line of tablets under the "MeMO Pad" brand. Targeted directly at the lower end, the MeMO Pad line doesn't focus on specs and instead tries to offer acceptable performance with a few useful features wrapped up in a solid case at an undercutting price.We reviewed the original MeMO Pad 7 and came away with mixed feelings about the value proposition of a 7-inch tablet with shaky internal hardware hitting the $150 price point. This time around ASUS has bumped up some of the sorely low specs and even dropped the entry price as well, but is it enough to make you consider it as a budget tablet choice?Hang with us after the break where we find out if the MeMO Pad HD7 has what it takes.The MeMO Pad HD7 has a solid display for its price class andinternal good enough specs. With the inclusion of HDR, the camera can actually take decent snapshot
Wireless display (mirroring) from the ASUS MeMo Pad HD7
Tuesday 20th of August 2013
The ASUS MeMo Pad HD7 has a wireless display feature, but I have no idea how to use it or what is compatible with it. Any assistance would be appreciated. I like the wireless idea a lot better than running a cable from a mini hdmi output IF it works... Thanks
Asus Memo Pad HD7 vs. Google Nexus 2013 (new version)
Tuesday 17th of September 2013
I am in the market to get a new tablet to replace my aging Samsung Galaxy Tab.Cannot decide between Asus Memo Pad HD7 and the Google Nexus 2013 (new version).I do not play any games on the tablet, just surfing the net, emailing and watch video both on Youtube and from the memory.The important parameters for me is the screen quality image and smooth web surfing. I know the Memo Pad can have an external Micro SD card while the Nexus does not.In the market here, Denmark, the Nexus is almost double the price of the Memo Pad.What are your advices as to which one should I pick between the two? Will I feel or see a big difference between the two?

New MeMO Pad HD7 - cannot install update...
Friday 10th of January 2014
Just got this in from newegg this week. All was well until I was shown that there is an update available. Tapped the button to install - Device reboots with the little android animation "installing update"... then quickly proceeds to the android "laid down" with "Failed!". I tried several times - all with the same result. Found a board that suggested erasing to factory state - did that through system settings. So - with the device absolutely "fresh" - I tried the update again... and still the same result. Online chat with ASUS led to a link to manually download the software with the following instructions:-------Please follow the instructions below to have it installed.1. Extract the file from the download zip file.2. The extracted file should be then copied to the root folder of your microSD card. 3. Place microSD card into tablet.4. Look for the notification on tablet.----- Well - that did absolutely nothing. The only option I still have is to download and install the same firmware that it tried before (and didn't work). It doesn't even seem
