Here are a couple of tablets that will debunk the myth that all quad-core devices are crazy-expensive. Geeks, check out the Android-powered ASUS MeMO Pad 8 and 10!
Aside from going the affordable route (we'll get to the SRPs in a bit) these tablets are lightweight. The MeMO Pad 8 weighs just 350g while its larger bro tips the scales at a still pretty feathery 522g. Despite this "lightness," both tablets are quite stacked inside.
For starters, ASUS' new tablets come with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM—a combo that makes them workhorses on the software side. They also have LED backlighting, IPS tech (for more viewing angles), and the same display resolution at 1280x800, although the MeMO Pad 10 has a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen (the MeMO Pad 8 has it at 8 inches). In the imaging department, the tablets come with 720p HD video recording.
Curiously, the MeMO Pad 8 boasts more megapixels for its rear camera compared to the MeMO Pad 10 (5- vs. 2-megapixels). We're guessing this might have something to do with the fact that smaller tablets are better for shooting selfies and taking snaps on the go in terms of portability (read: hindi sila nakakangawit).
For your multimedia files, both tablets boast microSD card slots and up to 16GB of memory. And for those wanting to use them as media players, good news: the MeMO Pad 8 and 10 come with high-quality dual speakers with ASUS' SonicMaster tech for better, louder tunes. Pwede!
Interested? Both tablets now available at ASUS dealers nationwide. The MeMO Pad 8 can be yours for P9,995 while the MeMO Pad 10 goes for P13,995. We told you these tablets are not crazy expensive, or at least not as expensive as others that cost an arm and a leg above P20,000.
