Asus Memopad HD 7 hands-on [Video]

We take a prod at Asus' latest budget tablet at Computex

TABLET MAKER Asus unveiled a throng of devices at Computex this week, and one of them was the Memopad HD 7.

The Memopad is Asus' new budget 7in tablet and is pretty much an updated Google Nexus 7, featuring Android Jelly Bean 4.2, a quad-core ARM Cortex A7 processor and 1GB of RAM.

Set to arrive in four different colours - yellow, pink, black and white - the Memopad was introduced by Asus' Chairman Joney Shih, who wooed the crowds during the firm's press launch by announcing the device would retail for a price of just $129 for the 8GB model, and $149 for a 16GB version when it launches in the US.

However, since then we've found out that the UK won't be seeing the 8GB device and instead will only get the Memopad with 16GB of storage for £149, which is quite an unfair pricing strategy if you ask us. Nevertheless, the Memopad will land in stores in the UK in August.

Unfortunately, we were unable to get any hands-on time with any of Asus' other devices it launched at Computex due to them being locked in glass cases on the firm's booth. µ
