I want you to think about how many times a day you use a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. Maybe even an iPod for listening to your favorite tunes. It’s a lot, right? We live in such a technology driven time. As someone who didn’t know how to operate her DVD player 10 years ago, I’ve come a long way. I rely heavily on my various devices for work, staying organized, entertainment, keeping in touch and so much more. As someone who often works on-the-go having the right smartphone and tablet is important. I think I’ve found the perfect tablet in the ASUS MeMO Pad™ 7 LTE. This post was sponsored by ASUS and Walmart. All opinions are mine.
With a 4G LTE connection which provides speed and reliability, the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE has a lot to offer at a great price. Budget conscious families will love the MeMO Pad 7 LTE, available at Walmart and Walmart.com for just $168 USD. Asus and AT&T are offering this thing for such a steal at $168 off-contract. If you purchase it as part of a 2-year contract, you can pick up the MeMO Pad 7 for only $74.99 or, if you prefer to go without a contract, $168 as part of the AT&T GoPhone plan (a prepaid service). The pre-paid data plans are very reasonable, making this a great option for students or anyone who doesn’t want to be tied to a contract.
The 7-inch, 1280 x 800 display on the MeMO Pad 7 is really good. Colors really pop and the image quality is great, making the tablet a good option for multimedia such as gaming and watching YouTube videos. The tablet has is very light weight at 9.6 ounces, but feels solid. It’s perfect for tucking into a purse or backpack. The screen is large enough for you to work on comfortably, yet easily handled by smaller hands.
The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE is great for both kids and parents. I let the girls check it out, but I am keeping this tablet for myself. Is that greedy? I might just have to purchase a second one for my nieces to use. Fortunately, at $168 this option is more affordable than other tablets with similar specs.

I like that this tablet offers Bluetooth connectivity and GPS, for when I am on the go. It’s great for taking with you to soccer practice and the perfect option for travel. I don’t like being bogged down with bulky devices when I travel. I need all the room I can get for my shoes.

You can also use this tablet to take, store and organize photos. You can take as many selfies as you want with its remarkable dual HD PixelMaster Cameras, 5MP in the rear, and 2MP in the front. I’m personally not one to take many selfies, but have become obsessed with taking pics of my dogs. Did I mention already that this tablet takes really good pictures? Even when your subject won’t sit still for more than 2 seconds.
The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE not only keeps you in touch with friends, but is also great for entertainment. In fact, it was designed with entertainment in mind. Colors stay true no matter what angle the tablet is being held. It is designed so you can enjoy an immersive experience whether listening to music, playing games or watching movies. The sound is directed at you, now hidden on the back with loud and vivid surround sound that brings gaming, movies and movies to life.
