ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 vs Nexus 7: what you gain and what you lose

This week at Computex, ASUS has revealed the MeMo Pad HD 7, a direct competitor for the Google Nexus 7, both of them working with a 7-inch display and both of them made by the same company. Though it may seem strange at first for ASUS to create a tablet that's so extremely similar to the machine they've got in their deal with Google, the different bits and pieces offered with this new machine may make all the difference.

Intel scores in tablet chips but success may come too late

Chalk up a win or two for Intel, with Computex 2013 Day Zero opening to a number of products with Atom chips where usually we'd expect to see ARM silicon.

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 and FHD 10 tablets get official

ASUS has two new mainstream tablets for Computex 2013 this week, and they each bring some interesting differentiators: the MeMo Pad HD 7 has a super-low price tag, kicking off at $129, while the MeMo Pad FHD 10 steps up to a Full HD display and slides in one of Intel's Atom processors. That's relatively unusual for an Android-based tablet, which more commonly would be found powered by an ARM chip (and, indeed, the MeMo Pad HD 7 does have something from ARM's line-up inside).
