Maybe not all of you remember the first generation of MeMO Pad by Asus which soon after Google took it under its wings and rebranded it into a Nexus device, plus some slight adjustments, it became the best-selling 7 inch tablet in 2012. Rumors about a new generation of MeMO Pads have started right after a first appearance in public (GLBenchmark website) at the end of the first quarter of 2012. Since then we’ve seen more evidence from a Russian retailer which also spilled the approximate selling price.

During CES 2013, Asus exhibited the new 7 inch low-budget tablet and finally a few minutes ago Taiwanese manufacturer has officially announced the MeMO Pad ME172V. It packs a 170 ppi 7 inch LED-backlit display with a surprising 1024×600 resolution, powered by a new on this branch 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU, a Mali-400 GPU and 1GB of RAM. Asus MeMO Pad comes in 8/16 GB internal memory storage expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. It also packs a 1MP  720p front-facing camera, 4270 mAh battery, JellyBean OS and some pre-installed ASUS applications; SuperNote Lite; ASUS WebStorage; ASUS WebStorage Online Office; ASUS Studio; BuddyBuzz; MyPainter; MyBitCast.
