Asus recently launched the 7-inch ASUS MeMO Pad 7 (model ME172V) in Malaysia, and the device will be available for RM499 ($166) starting from the end of January 2013.

The Asus MeMO Pad 7 runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and comes in 3 “diamond check” designs – Sugar White, Titanium Grey, and Cherry Pink.

Standing for “My Mobile. My Moment”, Asus’ new MeMO tablet is powered by a 1GHz VIA WM8950 CPU, with a Mali 400 GPU. Despite the entry-level pricing, the Memo Pad 7 features a 1024 x 600 resolution, LED-backlit 350-nits display, with a 140 degree viewing angle.

Although lacking a rear camera, the Memo Pad 7 does have a 1MP front facing camera capable of 720p (HD video) at 30fps. The tablet comes with 8GB of space, but its memory is expandable thanks to the microSD slot. The device is only available in a Wi-Fi version.
