ASUS is back in the USA-based mobile game with a device known as the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE. This device is coming with both post-paid and GoPhone (pre-paid) options, rolling out on the carrier as early as April 24th. This machine works with a 7-inch display using IPS+ LCD display technology at 888 x 1280 pixels. That’s sharper than an iPad mini, while the iPad mini 2 and 3 have 2048 x 1536 resolutions. The biggest competitors to this device with AT&T include the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE.
While we’ve seen this device a couple of times before internationally, this is the first time it’s being released with this shape and specifications. ASUS has been released overseas with a slightly more sharp-cornered configuration.
The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE may be a new release for AT&T, but it comes in at the lower end of the specifications spectrum. It also happens to be one of the least expensive tablets on the carrier and in the market.
This tablet can be purchased from AT&T for 99 cents when you purchase any smartphone on AT&T Next. If you purchase the tablet with Post-Paid pricing, you’ll be getting it for $8.75 per month for 20 months. Two-year pricing is $74.99, while pricing for no commit and GoPhone purchases are both $174.99.
Data on this device if you add to Mobile Share Value is $10 per month, while 2GB is $25 per month, 5GB is $50 per month, and 8GB is $75 per month.
