*9/23 Update – Still available!*
With others stubbornly selling it for about $120, we found a better solution. Grab your Asus MeMO Pad 8″ Tablet at eBay (Adorama is the trusted seller) and save! They have it in blue for just $84.99 with free shipping in a limited quantity, and it’s a bargain for what you get. The listing at the site says it’s valid for another week. How long you wait is up to you, but remember that nothing sells out like a hot eBay deal.
The 8″ Memo Pad offers one of our favorite operating systems, Android 4.4.X Kit Kat. A quad-core Intel Atom Baytrail processor running at 1.3GHz handles everything it does quite well. 1280 X 800 resolution on the 8″ display looks great, and does that at all viewing angles thanks to In Plane Switching (IPS). The CPU carries 1GB of memory (DDR3L), and the Memo uses Intel HD Graphics to bring you pretty pictures and video. 16GB of Flash Storage is on board when you get it. This very nice tablet uses WiFi 802.11 on all three of b, g and n.
