The Asus Fonepad 7 is an Android smartphone with a tablet-sized screen… or maybe it’s an Android tablet that makes phone calls. Either way, the latest version of the FonePad 7 featuring an Intel Moorefield processor was unveiled in June, and now it looks like the device could be on its way to customers in Europe and other regions.
According to a Global Certification Forum listing, the Asus Fonepad 7 will support GSM 850/900/1800/1900 bands and it will be available with a handful of different model numbers.
The Asus Fonepad 7 is expected to feature a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z3560 quad-core processor, a 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB to 16GB of storage. It has a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and stereo front-facing speakers.
The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat software with the Asus ZenUI user interface.
It looks like the phone/tablet will be marketed as the Asus Fonepad 7 FE37FCG, FE375CXG, FE7350CXG, or K019 depending on configurations and markets. It’s not clear if Asus has any plans to launch this model in the United States — most of the company’s Fonepad products to date have not been sold in the US.
i’m surprised that we don’t see more of these giant phones. it’d be interesting to see some graphs on phone calls, because i bet they are dropping. just in my own experience, i call very little these days, and rarely see people talking on phones in public when compared to the past. so if you’re going to use it for text, and internet, might as well be bigger.
