ASUS has announced the MeMO Pad, a Nexus 7 look-alike, which will cost a mere $149 when it launches. Aside from the slightly different textured backing, the external design looks exactly like the Nexus 7, although the specs are another story. It’s got a 1 GHz VIA WM8950 processor with 1GB of RAM, a Mali-400 GPU, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 4270 mAh battery, and runs Android 4.1. For 50 bucks more, you might want to go with the Nexus 7, but if you’re only worried about the price, you’d be hard-pressed to find a tablet at a sub-$200 price-point. It’ll come in white, black, and pink, and will launch this month in “select markets”.
