I bought this European version of the ASUS Fonepad because it includes a rear facing 5 megapixel camera but I was subsequently delighted to learn that since it is classified as a "phone" it neatly avoids the 3G data down load limits normally applied to "tablets". Yes it is too big to be used as a "phone" but, like other owners, I intend to use it with a blue tooth earpiece. One thing to bear in mind though is that the rear facing camera is located a little lower (perhaps 8 mm?) than the UK version and I will have to make a small modification to the multi-angle wallet stand which I also bought through Amazon, but then it was advertised as suitable for the UK model (ME371MG). I hope this review is helpful?
As opposed to the 'Asus Fonepad' (released Apr '13), the 'Asus Fonepad 7' (released Oct '13) has a dual core processor, front + rear cameras, stereo speakers, Android 4.3, Miracast... among other improvements. It's not really a matter of European and UK versions in any way other than that, for some reason, it has not been exported wholesale and made generally available in this country. I think the units in this ad, at the time of writing, are being sent from Germany. In November '13 I paid £246 to have one sent from Taiwan for my mother's Christmas and I still consider it good value for that price. Has all the benefits you get with a high spec smartphone but with a brilliant big 7" IPS LCD tablet screen. Very responsive, lag free and has faster 3G HSDPA connectivity (42Mb/s) than the old version (21Mb/s) and a lot of other smartphones and tablets. 'Now not a lot of people know that', as Michael Caine is reported to never have said. A brilliant device.
