Asus' MeMoPad 7" teased in new YouTube video!

   We saw our first sighting of the Asus MeMoPad at the tail end of last year when Asus officially confirmed it! Today the company has shown off a new little YouTube video which shows you some of the little tricks which Asus is hoping you'll be using the device for!

   Just in case you need a refresher then this device is basically Asus' answer to the new budget Iconia B1-A71 from Acer! So remember to not expect the earth, but there is; Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU with a Mali-400 GPU, 8 or 16GB of internal storage, 5GB of Asus WebStorage, 1GB of RAM and a 1MP front-facing camera which can manage 720p video! As well as, the normal range of connections and a 10-point multi-touch LED-backlit display with 1024 x 600 resolution, 140-degree viewing angles, which can also manage 350-nit brightness. The whole thing will run for about 7hours on the 4270mAh battery. 

   With all of that coming in at an RRP of $149 USD, we think this is very reasonable and it should prove to be a relatively popular tablet! So check you the video and let us know your thoughts in the comments below! Is the Nexus 7 worth the premium over this?
