For those of you on the lookout for a tablet but cannot quite stretch to paying the higher price tags on Apple iPads, consider the great deal on this little Asus Black 7" 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet which is currently on special offer at Futureshop Canada. They’ve knocked $50 off the original price of $179.99, bringing it down to only $129.99 with free shipping!
There are other colour options available in this Asus tablet, but only the black is available to order online at this price. If you want another colour, you could check out the stock at the Future Shop location nearest to you. Here’s a quite note on the specification of this tablet deal:
- 7" HD screen with 1280 x 800px resolution
- 16GB of built-in memory
- 2MP HD front camera & 5 MP rear
- Android 4.4
- Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
While 16GB isn’t huge for a tablet in terms of memory these days, this Asus tablet is excellent because it’s expandable up to 64GB by using a new micro SD card. If you need the extra on-board storage space, you’ve got that option down the line.
Also, the fact that this Asus tablet has got both front and rear cameras is a bonus – many of the lower price-point tablets only have one. This means that you can video chat with ease, changing the view when needed.
I did an online price comparison to see how good this deal really was. The Asus 7" 16GB MeMO Pad Tablet With Wi-Fi comes in quite higher at most other stores - $160 @ Memoryexpress, $180 @ Best Buy, $198 @ Newegg, $160 @ The Source, $160 @ NCIX. So you can see it’s a truly sweet deal from Future Shop - $30 cheaper than the next best price from the competition.
Reviews seem mostly positive too, with many users commenting that it’s great for streaming video and various media. It sounds like it also has a great screen, with clear and sharp pictures. Overall, I think it’s a great buy for this price.
