Not being Asus’s flag ship phone, the Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 still has much to offer over many other tablets in it’s category namely — The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 inch, and Acer Iconia A1 tablet. Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy 3 Tab 7 inch that was announced last month July 2013 only had a standard display of 1024 x600. Thus, the Asus MeMOpad certainly makes the Galaxy 3 Tab 7 look out-dated the first month in. Does this mean Samsung will release another Galaxy Tab version for revenge sooner than anticipated?
