Asus aims to grab the Android tablet market’s fleshy middle with two new MeMo Pads

    Why are 8gb storage and 1200×800 still even options on new devices? If that’s the base model for the 10″ model then they’d better be pricing this wayyyyyy below $399. Particularly after the 2nd gen Nexus 10 splashes.

      Nothing wrong with 1200×800 for tablets, and display quality isn’t all about resolution.

      But yes this will need to be released at a good price point since it has little to no differentiation from other Android tablets.

    These sound like decent budget devices, but if they follow Samsung then that is mid-range pricing. In the Android world, mid-range pricing gets you 2GB of RAM and better display resolution then that.

    Nexus it is then.

    Expecting the 8-incher to tip the scales at $199-229. I was going to get the HD7, but I’ll wait and see final 8-inch pricing before I jump.
