ASUS MeMO Pad offers up to 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by up to 32GB via the microSD card slot. Asus is also throwing in 5GB of cloud storage through ASUS WebStorage. This tablet comes with a 1-megapixel front camera but no back camera. Asus MeMO Pad ME172V offers Wi-Fi connectivity and has a 4270mAh battery. It will also have apps such as SuperNote Lite, ASUS WebStorage, ASUS WebStorage Online Office, ASUS Studio, BuddyBuzz, MyPainter and MyBitCast pre-installed on it.
