We’ve heard of and loved dual SIM smartphones but dual SIM tablets are a new thing. Although there have been dual SIM tablets from Indian brands like Lava, Karbonn, Intex and iBall, looks like Asus will be one of the first international brand to embrace dual SIM card slots in its tablets after Lenovo. Asus will be launching dual SIM version of its FonePad 7 tablet in India tomorrow. The single SIM version of the FonePad 7 is already available in India in 8GB as well as 16GB storage variants.
The Asus FonePad 7 is one of the nicest voice calling tablets available in India as of now. It is better than the Galaxy Tab 2 and the Galaxy Tab 3 in most regards except the screen brightness.
