BERLIN -- We're out at IFA in Germany checking out the latest tech from all the major brands. This time it's the turn of Asus with the Memo Pad 8. It's an 8-inch Android slate with a quad-core processor, a colourful body, and a cheap price tag.

There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back, which should be good enough for some fancy Facebook snaps.

Although it has an 8-inch display, slim bezels help keep the overall body size down.

A speaker grille sits at the bottom. Don't expect the sound to bother your neighbours.
