ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 Android tablet (preview)

The MeMo Pad FHD 10 is a competitively priced, 10in Android tablet with a full HD screen

Competitively priced Android devices are becoming more and more prevalent in the crowded tablet market, but most of these have small screen sizes. ASUS is aiming to change this with the MeMo Pad FHD 10, a 10in Android tablet with a full HD screen.

Described by ASUS as "the perfect tablet for full HD entertainment", the star of the show is clearly the MeMo Pad FHD's 10.1in IPS display, which has a resolution of 1920x1200. Although this resolution isn't as high as devices like the 4th Generation iPad and Google's Nexus 10, it still has a more than respectable pixel density of 226ppi. This means it is likely to display crisp and clear text with minimal visible aberrations.

Weighing 580g, the MeMO Pad FHD 10 is lighter than both the iPad and the Nexus 10, but is thicker than both at 9.5mm. ASUS produces both black and white variants in international markets, but the company will only sell the "silk white" model in Australia.

The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, has 2GB RAM and comes with 32GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot allows users to expand the storage.

Other features include a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera that doubles as a full HD, 1080p video recorder, a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera, and a non-removable lithium polymer battery that ASUS says will last for up to 10 hours of video playback.

The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 runs the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean version of Android though ASUS does pre-load a number of its own apps. These include SuperNote Lite, and the ASUS Studio photo editing utility. There's also the addition of Miracast compatibility, which allows video to be streamed wirelessly to a compatible TV.

The MeMo Pad FHD 10 is 9.5mm thick, and has a microSD card slot for extra storage.

Another series of Android tablets that launch this week from tablet-maker Pipo Electronics, truly stand out for excellent build quality and price-performance -- the Pipo M7 Pro ($255) which for roughly the same price as the new Nexus 7, features a 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution that uses advanced Samsung PLS technology, along with a Quad core processor, and built-in GPS navigation — and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus... offering premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, as well as the choice of using standard Android O/S or a Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use.

The Pipo M9 Pro ($285) model offers a 10-inch version that compares closely to the new Asus and 3G HSPA+ is available with either model for $25 more and work with any GSM Carrier, including Telstra and Optus Mobile, and an Android phone SIM card maybe used interchangeably with both phone and tablet.

One of the first sources to carry the new Pipo tablet series is --T ab l e t S p r i nt–- which also features a new Miracast TV adapter($39) that launched this week, which is similar to Google Chromecast - but with a lot more features and performs much more like Apple's Airplay technology--

I bought a Pipo M7 Pro last week and the performance is just fine on this tablet, WiFi is fast... if WiFi is slow for you, you have connection issues with your router since the Pipo Pro Series use the same exact Broadcom WiFi Chip as most other major brand tablets. It's unlikely you've even tested one out since they just recently launched this new model, so it's doubtful your negative committing has any basis in fact, just based on that the Pipo brand is not a nexus or asus.

This is a great tablet for the price of 320 AUS. Asus is also fast with improvement updates. No more budget brand tablet for me.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
