The Asus fonepad is ideal for people who value both the voice communication features of a smartphone and the entertainment opportunities afforded by a tablet, but prefer the convenience of carrying just one device. fonepad is a sleek and compact tablet with a metallic design that can be held comfortably in one hand, thanks to a slim and light profile. Powered by the latest Intel Atom processor, and with full Android compatibility, fonepad features a perfect balance of performance and energy efficiency, with hardware-accelerated 1080p Full HD video decoding and up to 9 hours of battery life. The screen features 10-point multi-touch, and a crisp 1280 x 800 HD resolution for crisp, readable web page text and incredibly detailed photos. IPS technology ensures vibrant colour, and wide viewing angles ensure that you can read the screen in bright light, even outdoors.
Built-in 3G with HSPA+ mobile data means that the fonepad is an always-connected mobile device for seamless web browsing, fast downloads from Google Play Store, and smooth audio and video streaming. Thanks to full 3G telephony support, fonepad can also be used for voice calls using the built-in noise-cancelling digital microphone or Bluetooth headset (sold seperately). With just one mobile data plan to pay for, running costs are also much lower than those of a separate smartphone and 3G tablet.
