We go hands-on with the ASUS Memo Pad FHD 10, a competitively priced 10in Android tablet
The [[artnid:524297|ASUS MeMo Pad FHD 10]] is a competitively priced, 10in Android tablet with a full HD screen. Let's go hands-on!
The MeMo Pad FHD 10's Australian retail packaging.
The MeMo Pad FHD 10 comes in red, blue and white models, but ASUS will only sell the "silk white" model in Australia.
Unboxing the MeMo Pad FHD 10.
The package includes an AC adapter, a micro-USB to USB cable, a user manual and a warranty card.
The MeMo Pad FHD 10 has a 10.1in IPS display with 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.
The device has an attractive, etched finish on the back. This makes it both comfortable to hold and relatively easy to grip.
There's a power/lock screen button along the top of the tablet, towards the left side. It's a bit of an annoyance if you're right handed.
A micro-USB port for charging is located on the left side of the tablet.
There's also a micro-HDMI port for connecting the the MeMo Pad FHD 10 to a television, along with a microSD card slot. The device comes with 32GB of internal memory.
A volume rocker and standard 3.5mm headphone jack are located on the right side of the device. The volume rocker does feel a little loose but provides decent tacility.
The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor and has 2GB RAM.
A 5-megapixel rear-facing camera doubles as a full HD, 1080p video recorder, and the tablet also comes with a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera.
The MeMO Pad FHD 10 is available now in Australia for $399. It is sold through retailers JB HiFi, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman, Leading Edge, Radio Rentals, BSR and The Good Guys, along with a number of authorised ASUS resellers.
