ASUS was in a process to make a product called the FonePad, a 7-inch tablet with built-in phone functionality same as Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. ASUS formally unveiled it at MWC. The speculation about its specs was all true: this does have an Intel processor(1.2GHz Atom Z2420, to be exact) along with 1GB of RAM, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and an HSPA+ radio. The 4,270mAH battery is said to get up to nine hours of runtime.
The FonePad has a smooth metal back (available in gray and gold), making it drastically different in appearance from the Nexus 7. 'Round back you'll find a panel where all the usual antennae are, and hidden underneath are both the micro-SIM slot and the microSD reader. MicroSD slot supports 32GB cards, which should come in handy and has 16GB of built-in storage. Additionally, the tablet has a 1.2-megapixel front camera, attached to a 7-inch, 1,280 x 800 IPS display.
The FonePad will be available in Europe for £179 / €219. ASUS also confirmed a US dollar price of $249 at MWC. It will be available in March, but the specific date hasn't been given.
