If you’re expecting for ASUS and Google to announce a new Nexus tablet at the Computex expo, then you may need to hold your breath a bit more. In the meantime, the Taiwanese company has introduced a 7-inch slate under a different name: the MeMo Pad HD 7.

Basically, this new tablet is a refresh of the original MeMo Pad that, as the name indicates, improves on the screen quality by sporting a 720p high-definition IPS display. The device comes equipped with an ARM Cortex A7 quad-core processor, Bluetooth 3.0, and rear- and front-facing cameras at respective 5MP and 1.2MP resolutions. In appearance alone, the ASUS MemoPad HD 7 does bear a striking resemblance to the Nexus 7.

When it releases internationally in July, budget shoppers will certainly see the ASUS MeMoPad HD 7 as a viable tablet choice since its 8GB model only has a $129 price tag, while the 16GB model costs $149. The only notable downside when choosing this device is the outdated operating system that runs on board, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
