ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 arrives in Canada on August 12th for $159

It’ll be tough to compete with the Nexus 7 – the original or the new 2013 version. However, if you’re looking for a cost effective tablet that runs Android, then the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 might be a good fit. This 4.2 Jelly Bean 7-inch (1280 x 800) tablet costs $159 outright, has a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 16GB internal storage, 5MP camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, weighs 302 grams and apparently gives up to 10 hours of battery life. Big Box retailers BestBuy, Future Shop and Staples will have this for sale on Monday in ‘four exciting colors — blue, white, pink, and green.’
