In case you are looking for a budget Android tablet, Asus is here to convince you with Asus Fonepad 7 which runs on Android 4.3 Jelly bean embedded in familiar Zen UI. The tablet also features Dual SIM connectivity and 3G support.


Rest of the hardware takes a backseat to accommodate the low price tag. You get a 7 inch Display with 1024 x 600 pixels powered by 1.2 GHz dual core Intel Atom Z2520, the same one which we saw in Zenfone 4. The chipset is backed by 1 GB RAM and 4 GB internal storage which should be enough if you plan on using it as a multimedia device. MicroSD card support is also present for up to 64 GB secondary storage.

You can record 720p HD videos from the 2 MP rear camera and the front VGA camera should suffice for basic video calling. If you are comfortable making calls with a 7 inch device, Asus gives you option for dual SIM connectivity as well.


Battery capacity is 3950 mAh and other features include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The tablet has been competitively priced at 8,999 INR and will compete against the likes of Dell Venue 7 and Lava ETab Ivory in India.
