It has a 1.2-megapixel front-facing HD camera with 720p HD video recording and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The MeMo Pad HD7 is quite portable as it measures 10.8mm and weighs only 302g. Its lithium polymer battery is stated to last up to 10 hours with 720p video playback. The MeMo Pad HD 7 will be available in four colors (black, white, pink and green) from July 2013.
The MeMo Pad FHD 10 is the second tablet in ASUS's tablet family to be powered by an Intel Atom processor, with the ASUS Fonepad as the world's first Intel Lexington tablet. Powered by the latest Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core 1.6GHz processor, the tablet device features Intel Hyper Threading Technology for improved graphics and increased energy efficiency.
