Asus 7 MeMO Pad will have no secrets for our readers, but nevertheless still lacked the dot on the “i” in terms of our country, which arrives this morning in the form of a press release from the company. The phrase with which ends won’t like this but to many: “ASUS MeMO Pad will be available by March 2013 at the Asus Point and best supermarket chains at a recommended retail price of 179 Euros, VAT included.” Just 20 € less than (not always easy to find) Nexus 7 to 16 GB. A price that does not justify having to forgo the Tegra 3 for the benefit of a WM8950 from 1 GHz VIA CPU, always display from 7 “but lower resolution (1024 x 600 pixels), and obviously also depriving themselves of the Google Experience. Upside: a microSD slot (up to 32 GB).
You have your individual considerations in the comments that follow the long press release below.
