ASUS Launches Low-Price Tablets

ASUS has recently unveiled the Memo Pad FHD7, which is an Android tablet that you can buy for $129. The device has a weight of 302 grams. It has 1280 by 800 pixels resolution in a 7” screen and was launched during the Computex show held in Taiwan.

The FHD7 includes two cameras: a 5 MP back camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It is powered by the Cortex A7 low-power quad core processor. The model worth $129 is supposed to have 8GB storage. The pricing of the model starts at $149 for 16GB models in other markets.

Most of the tablet manufacturers have been constantly reducing prices of small-screen Android tablets. Earlier, Acer launched the Iconia A1 tablet at $169, while HP introduced the Slate 7 at $149. The 8” Kindle Fire HD from Amazon and the Nexus 7 tablets from Google are priced at $199 each.

ASUS has also launched the Transformer Pad Infinity which is a 10.1” tablet with lots of new technologies which sets it apart from the overcrowded Android market. This device uses quad-core chips Tegra 4, and runs on Android 4.2.2. Tegra 4 has previously been used in the Slatebook X2 by HP. The infinity supports 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution, which is considerably more than the 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution available in the latest iPad tablet from Apple. You can try the latest iPad models by renting one from an rental service provider in your area.
