If you prefer an ASUS for your tablet but think you can do without the QWERTY keypad dock, then hereâ€™s what you can go for â€“ the ASUS Eee Pad MeMo 171.
This isnâ€™t a quad-core beast, but it does come with its own stylus, which you can neatly and conveniently slide into the MeMo when not in use.
It has decent specs too: the Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered MeMo 171 runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with 1GB RAM, a 5-megapixel main cam, a secondary 1.2-megapixel shooter on the front, a 7-inch 800×1200 resolution touch screen, and 16GB of onboard storage.
Which means that, for Php19,995, it really isnâ€™t that bad at all.
For comparisonâ€™s sake, the smaller but slightly faster (1.4GHz vs 1.2GHz)Â Galaxy Note is still retailing above the Php25K price point.
Though personally, I’d rather just wait for the Nexus 7 to officially hit local stores, if ever that’ll happen. It’s sleek and fast, and if it can stay true to its original pricing, it should definitely be more affordable than the MeMo 171. But yeah, that’s still a very big IF.
