The Asus Fonepad is a smartphone with a 7 inch screen. Or maybe it’s a 7 inch tablet which makes phone calls.
Either way, when Asus introduced the Fonepad a few months ago, the company promised a device with a 1.2 GHz Intel Atom Z2420 processor and 16GB of storage.
Now there’s a new model available, featuring a faster 1.6 GHz Atom Z2640 CPU and 32GB of storage.
The rest of the specs remain unchanged. Both models have 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS displays, microSD card slots for extra storage, built-in WiFi, GPS, and HSPA+ connectivity, and cameras on the front and back of the tablet.
Asus still has no plans to offer either model in the US, but Engadget reports that in Taiwan the new model sells for about $360 while the original Fonepad with 16GB sells for $300.
