Asus Memo Pad HD7 is ultra-affordable 7in tablet
The Android tablet price war looks set to continue following the release of the Asus Memo Pad HD7, set to go on sale for just $129 (8GB), making it one of the cheapest Android tablets around.
There's no word on a UK release date or price as yet but having seen previous Asus tablets make their way over to the UK, we'd imagine it's only a matter of time.
Powered by a low-power Cortex-A7 quad-core processor, the Asus Memo Pad HD7 has a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
There's a 1.2-megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth support and stereo speakers. The HD7 weighs in at 302 grams and is just 10.8mm thick.

This new tablet comes as tablet-makers have been dropping the prices of Android products, with tablets such as the Versus TouchPad 10.1 following the lead of the Google Nexus 7 (which is built bu Asus) and Amazon Kindle Fire HD, in dipping under £200.
Asus have also introduced a new version of the Transformer Pad Infinity, a 10.1 inch tablet.
The Infinity comes with Android 4.2.2 and has a quad-core Tegra 4 chip, including a Cortex-A15 CPU and 72 graphics cores – making it only the second tablet based on the Tegra 4 chip.
Asus announced the release of the company's latest tablet at the Computex trade show in Taiwan.
