GoPhone Offers Affordable LTE Tablet

asus MeMo tab

AT&T, Asus and Intel have partnered together to release a new entertainment tablet for its prepaid and postpaid customers. The Asus MeMO Pad 7 LTE sports a pretty boring name and some pretty cool specs and features including dual-front speakers and a high resolution display with bright colors and wide viewing angles for watching videos.

For you tech-minded people, here are some of the hardware specs for the device:

  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 7 inch screen
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB memory
  • SD card slot (up to 64 MB)
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • Front facing camera
  • GPS/Wifi capability

The Asus MeMO Pad 7 LTE should be available through AT&T tomorrow for $174.99. GoPhone has prepaid mobile broadband offerings, but they’re pretty high priced. AT&T associates have assured me that the device is not locked, so you should be able to take it to other companies that offer better data services. Check our List of Mobile Broadband Services to get some ideas on rates and offerings, but keep in mind that some of those only include hotspots and not tablets, so be sure to know what you’re buying!
