Asus has just launched the refreshed version of the Fonepad 7 tablet at the Computex 2014 and an 8 inch version of the same alongside it. They are powered by Intel’s latest 64-bit processors and are aimed at giving you a good tablet experience without burning a hole in your pocket. There’s very little that differentiates the two of them barring the screen size.
- 7 inch/8 inch IPS display, 1280 x 800 pixels, Anti-fingerprint coating
- 1.83 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 64-bit processor, PowerVR Series 6 – G6430 GPU
- 1GB RAM, 8GB and 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot (up to 64GB)
- 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
- Android 4.4 Kitkat with Zen UI on top of it
- 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Dual SIM with calling abilities
- 15.2 Wh battery, 9 hours of usage on the 8 inch variant, 10 hours on the 7 inch variant
- Black, White, Red and Gold colour options
The devices will be available in the market by Q3 2014. The current Fonepad tablets are pretty popular in India and we hope that the new twins will make their way into the country at a pocket-friendly price tag.
