INDIA: ASUS India, together with Intel India, announced the availability of the ASUS Fonepad in India.
The Fonepad is a co\mpetitively priced Phablet with 3G connectivity and calling features of a smartphone, with the versatility of a 7-inch tablet. Powered by the latest Intel Atom processor Z2420 with Android 4.1, ASUS Fonepad features a vibrant HD display with IPS technology for wide viewing angles and outstanding clarity.
ASUS Fonepad is ideal for people who value both the voice communication features of a smartphone and the entertainment opportunities offered by a tablet, but prefer the convenience of carrying just one device.
ASUS Fonepad is a sleek, compact tablet with a metallic design that can be held comfortably in one hand, thanks to its light 340g weight and slim 10.4mm profile. Powered by the latest Intel Atom processor Z2420 with full Android compatibility, ASUS Fonepad features a perfect balance of performance and energy efficiency, with hardware-accelerated 1080p HD video decoding and up to nine hours of battery life.
The 7-inch screen features 10-point multi-touch, and a crisp 1280 x 800 HD resolution for crisp, readable web page text and incredibly detailed photos. IPS technology ensures vibrant color with 178-degree wide viewing angles, and images that are clear and bright, even outdoors.
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, ASUS 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.
ASUS Fonepad has 8GB of storage capacity and has an SD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage. It features a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera for easy video chat and a 3-megapixel autofocus rear camera with 720p HD video recording. ASUS SonicMaster audio technology with MaxxAudio 3 processing by Waves ensures clear, well-rounded sound quality.
