Asus ready to unveil Memo Pad HD


It looks like that, in the face of stiff tablet competition from Acer and Samsung, ASUS is ready to respond. Reportedly, the Taiwanese firm intends to unveil a successor to its 7-inch budget device Memo Pad at Computex this year.

Code named "Memo Pad HD", the tablet is a major improvement over its predecessor. In case you don't remember, the original Memo Pad had a 1024×600 resolution, 169 PPI display, while the new tablet sports a 1280×720 pixel screen! Its internals have received a significant upgrade, as well: it now features a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. In addition, it supports 802.11 wireless (b/g/n), Bluetooth, and GPS.

While the Memo Pad launched at $149, ASUS will allegedly sell the Memo Pad HD for $169 because of increased component costs. It will be available, like the Memo Pad, in several different colors: white, black, blue, pink, and yellow.
