ASUS has announced ASUS FonePad 7, at IFA, 2013. This New tablet is the upgraded version of FonePad 7 announced earlier this year. This 7 inch tablet comes with Voice calling capability and HD display. ASUS Google Nexus 7 second edition will soon be coming to India and we expect this tablet to follow.
ASUS FonePad 7 comes with a IPS LCD backlit 7 inch 1280 x 800 (WXGA) HD display. This amounts to a pixel density of 215 ppi which is above average for a 7 inch Tablet. The Android version is Android 4.2 Jelly bean.
This Tablet will be powered by 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor. Last version of FonePad featured the 1.2GHz Intel Lexington processor, thus the processing power has been upgraded. The RAM capacity is 1 GB and this tablet will be available in 8GB/16 GB/ 32 GB Storage variants. MicroSD support is also present for further expanding internal storage memory.
Primary camera is of 5 MP, which has also been upgraded from the 3MP in the older version. This camera is capable of Full HD 1080p Video recording. A secondary camera of 1.2 MP is also present in this device for 720p HD Video calling. Most people are not very comfortable clicking pics with their tablets and thus camera specifications are not of great concern.
The battery capacity is 3950 mAh which ASUS claims will give you talk time of 28 hrs on 3G and standby time of 840 hrs on 3G.Needless to say this is quite impressive battery backup. This Tablets comes with Voice calling capability and other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v3.0, micro-USB, micro-SIM, A-GPS/GLONASS and 3G
Yes Asus FonePad 7 looks quite impressive on paper and we expect this to drive away competition in the same price bracket (expected) like Samsung Galaxy tab 3 7.0. ASUS has decided to not reveal the price as of yet, but we will update you with any news that we receive regarding the price and availability of this tablet.
