The Fonepad features a streamlined metallic finish, microSD and SIM cards discretely hidden, diamond cut camera ring, dual microphones for noise suppression and echo cancelation. 3G is only at play - no mention of of LTE here. 3-megapixel rear-facing camera has auto focus and 720p, 7-inch IPS panel, 1280x800 pixels.

 

Inside we have Intel's Atom Z2420, perfect for low power consumption - ASUS are talking about 9-10 hour battery life. The price? Well, a 7-inch smartphone from ASUS is going to set you back just $249. Wow, ASUS have definitely struck gold here with the Fonepad at just $249. Incredible pricing - but what about availability? Next month, that's what. Depending on where you purchase, there will be a Euro-based model that will come without the rear camera, so keep that in mind.
