The first season of Queen Sono is officially live on Netflix and South Africans are already drinking up the show, posting reviews and reactions…
There was an abundance of cheap tech garbage at CES 2013, so finding a well-priced tablet amongst the stalls pandering for your attention was a difficult task. Asus has made it easy for us though, with the post-CES launch of the US$150 MeMO Pad, a 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet with a Nexus-like design.
Outside of the peppy colour-naming scheme (Sugar White, Titanium Gray and Cherry Pink), the MeMO Pad is more of the same, but it’s well-priced and decently specced. The CPU is a 1Ghz Mali-400, the processor choice of most budget devices. There’s a 1024 x 768 display running at 170PP, a 1MB front-facing HD camera (no rear), 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, a 7-hour battery life and a slew of Asus “crap apps”. Finally, the MeMO Pad weighs a slight 370g.
Just don’t call it the “Nexus-lite” though. While the Nexus 7’s hardware is only a slight upgrade in specs compared to the MeMO Pad, the 7 seems to be a far superior device in build alone. Expect a full review soon when the MeMO Pad launches later in 2013.
