Are you one of the eager customers of Asus Fonepad? If yes, you might find this blast an exciting one! According to the latest buzz, the said handset may be hitting UK this April. Evidently, Cardphone Warehouse revealed that this gadget is currently marked as “coming soon” in the shelves. Yes, you’ve heard it right. It will be available in the market earlier than anticipated.
We had a first sight on this handset during the Mobile Congress 2013, together with the Asus Padfone Inifinity. At that time, the company estimated that the release date will be on the late second quarter. But now, we are going to have it this month.
Asus Fonepad is a combination of a tablet and a Smartphone since you can make calls out of this device. It is actually a potential way to eliminate the need of two gadgets- Smartphone and tablet. However, for a 7-in handset, making calls is not an ideal function. Just try to visualize a book sticking to the side of your face- how awful isn’t it?
Talking about its specification, here are some of them: 1280 x 800 pixel LCD screen, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a 1.2-megapixel webcam, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD slot for expanded file storage. It is just like the usual Android tablet in the market.
As I went to different reviews regarding the specs of Asus Fonepad, plenty of writers commented that this Fonepad is fairly similar to Nexus 7. Just so you know Asus is also the manufacturing company of Nexus 7, though it is branded as a “Google” device.
