ASUS today announced Fonepad, a competitively priced handheld with 3G voice and mobile data. The 7" tablet is powered by Intel Atom Z2420 processor with Android 4.1, and features a vibrant HD display with IPS technology. Here's more info on this Asus tablet with mobile voice and data capabilities:
The Asus Fonepad has a metallic design and weighs 12 ounces and 0.4" in thickness. The tablet is powered by the latest Intel Atom Z2420 processor with full Android compatibility. The 7-inch screen features 10-point multi-touch, and a 1280 x 800.
Built-in 3G for mobile data and voice calls
Built-in 3G with HSPA+ mobile data means ASUS Fonepad is an always-connected mobile device for seamless web browsing, fast downloads from Google Play Store, and smooth streaming of audio and video. Thanks to its full 3G telephony support, Fonepad can also be used for voice calls using the built-in noise-cancelling digital microphone or an optional Bluetooth headset. With just one mobile data plan to pay for, running costs are also much lower than those of a separate smartphone and 3G tablet.
Fonepad is available in 8GB and 16GB capacities, and has an SD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage. All models feature a front 1.2-megapixel camera for easy video chat and an optional rear 3-megapixel autofocus camera with 720p HD video recording. ASUS SonicMaster audio technology with MaxxAudio 3 processing by Waves ensures clear, well-rounded sound quality.
Exclusive ASUS apps and accessories enhance productivity
ASUS Fonepad comes with a number of exclusive ASUS productivity apps: Floating App for easy management of running apps and multi-tasking; SuperNote lite for handwritten notes and drawing; and WebStorage Office Online for Microsoft Office-compatible document editing on the move. Fonepad users also get 5GB of free lifetime ASUS WebStorage for syncing and sharing data with other devices.
Two new optional accessories are also available for Fonepad. Available in four colors, VersaSleeve 7 is a wraparound cover with a folding design that both protects Fonepad, and props up the screen in two different positions for typing and watching video. Turn Case is a lightweight hardshell case for Fonepad that features a soft interior that keeps the screen clean and a built-in stand that puts the screen at the perfect angle for watching video.
