Just in case something as trivial as PRICE is important...
$109.99 with Free Shipping available.

(if now edited to include the price, it was not there at time of comment).

Good Deal!

Also, Gray and White are the same price as this Pink. This model is being replaced by an HD one.

Facepalm! Thanks for catching that for me!

This is a single core tablet with resolution of only 1024x600. Compared with a Nexus 7 that is quad core with a resolution of 1280 x800. Not to say this is a horrible tablet, its just not that great and the price is no great deal. This tablet will not be nearly as fluid as a nexus 7, nor will it be able to run HD video as well, and certain apps/games will not work either. This is worst than the 1st generation nook tablets that had the same resolution, but at least had a dual core processor. Your better off buying a used nook tablet for about $80 off of cowboom and flashing the ROM to Jellybean than buying the Asus memo. But for $160 you can buy a refurb nexus 7 from walmart which I think is the best option.

@gak0090: If you're going to spend 160 bucks at Walmart for a refurb tablet, might as well spend 165 bucks for a new Hisense Sero Pro with the two year replacement warranty.

@gak0090: you have obviously not used this tablet. It is MUCH better than a modded 1st generation Nook.

This tablet really surprised me by how good it is. Believe me when I tell you that specs alone do not necessarily give you a complete picture.

Actually it's dual core 1.0 Ghz. It's faster and better than a Nook color, but it's not the buttery smooth quad core Nexus 7 either. It's a hundred dollar tablet that's leaps and bounds ahead of the Coby and Polaroids. Btw, here are the other forty seven reviews that were a little more favorable.

@morriea: I don't think you are comparing the correct item. I said 1st generation Nook Tablet- not the Nook color. I have used this item, and I can say for sure that it is not faster than a Nook tablet running jellybean. The Asus Memo is a single core tablet.

It's not faster than a Nook tablet 1st generation which is a dual core Dual Core Ti OMAP 4430, it is faster than a Nook Color

@idontkn1: I have bought no name Chinese off brand tablets (Novo 7 Ainol- which is better known than Hisense in tablets). Although their specs may seem similar, they do not perform like main brand items, they do not get updated in the same way, and they are not as nearly refined. I would much rather have a refurbed Nexus 7 (made by Asus) then Hisense junk- I don't care what the warranty difference is. If the tablet makes it past 90 days (under at least moderate use), unless there is user abuse- it would be extremely rare that you would get a spontaneous failure.

Definitely not dual core. Good job @gak0090. This argument has been done before when this tablet was released at $149. It was stated to get a nexus 7 with quad core back then and it holds true even now at $109. When you are at that point where you are comparing to a nook... its not a good look. Galaxy tab 2 at $169 new with dual core. Pick ur retailer, refurb galaxy tab 2 even cheaper. Save ur money.

@icexx7: I mentioned the Nook tablet because I have customized a couple of the 16gb in the past and they work great, and price wise cost less than the memo when you purchase a used one from cowboom ($70-$80). The Galaxy Tab 2 is a nice tablet, but the refurb Nexus 7 at $159 is a better choice since it has a quad core Tegra 3 and better resolution than the Galaxy tab.
