expecting, the ASUS Fonepad has come available for those in the UK. The tablet is sporting a 7-inch display and will be available with a handful of retailers to include Carphone Warehouse, Sainsbury's and Amazon. Those considering a purchase should be prepared to shell out £179.99. Keep in mind though, as of today we are talking pre-orders. The actual availability is set for later in the month -- April 26.
ASUS FonePad 7-inch tablet was revealed back at Mobile World Congress in Spain, and ever since then we've been wondering when we can get our own. Mainly because this 7-inch Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet runs an Intel processor, and doubles as a smartphone at the same time. Yes, you'll still look ridiculous holding something that big to your ear, but today we learned ASUS will offer it at a pretty competitive price.
phablet, we have some potentially good news today. While we try not to use that word too often, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and ASUS FonePad are exactly that. Massive 7 and 8-inch tablets that just so happen to have full phone features. If you've been dying to try one, at least one UK retailer says they'll both launch in April.
ASUS is planning on showing off a couple of new devices in the coming months. After launching the ASUS FonePad in April, ASUS is said to be previewing the next generation of Nexus 7s in May (most likely at Google's I/O conference), and launching a brand new phone in June. The rumors come from sources who tipped off Digitimes. The rumors don't seem far from the truth, however, because we already know that Google plans on launching a successor to its current Nexus 7.
Galaxy Note II being readily available the limits were already being pushed, but this year the lines are going to get blurred even more. Would you hold an 8-inch phablet to the side of your head in public? Samsung and ASUS seem to think so.
