The latest creation rolling off the production line at Asus is the Asus FonePad: a 7-inch Android tablet that can make and receive phone calls. Arriving with an extremely friendly £179.99 price tag when it launches on April 26, the FonePad is here to compete with the likes of the Google Nexus 7 (also developed by Asus), the Kindle Fire HD and the all-conquering iPad mini for your affections. Interestingly, the Asus FonePad is notable for co...
Pros: Great LED-backlit screen, microSD storage, Premium metal chassis, Good battery life,
Cons: No rear camera, Poor speakers, Nexus 7 cheaper, Impractical for calls,
Verdict: As a smartphone, its use is negligible. But as a tablet, the Asus FonePad shines just as brightly as its Google-branded cousin, and while the small-tablet market is crowded the FonePad stands out. It`s well made and offers a good selection of feature...
The Rock, Andre the Giant and the Incredible Hulk: three monstrous behemoths who could happily hold a 7in device to their faces without looking ridiculous. But for the rest of us mere mortals, we have to wonder where a 7in phone-capable tablet (alright, ‘phablet) such as the Asus FonePad might fit into our lives. Is it a viable phone alternative? Perhaps it doesn’t matter. Perhaps what really matters is that this seems to essentially be a Goo...
The Asus Fonepad is a curious mix of devices: it's a 7in tablet with 3G and a smartphone too; a fully fledged handset complete with an integrated earpiece and microphone, so you can go all Dom Joly making phone calls on the bus home. In reality, the chief appeal of the Fonepad, aside from providing a talking point down the pub, is that it's exceedingly good value. It will set you back only Â£180, and when you think of what you're getting for th...
The ASUS Fonepad — mainly tablet, but also part phone. And ASUS is definitely marketing this as something you would use to make phone calls — just check out their official marketing videos for proof. But it's also a 7-inch Android tablet, with Intel internals and a competitive price point. It's a device with a pretty specific use case, but for the kind of person who might put the Fonepad to good use, it could be invaluabl...
Pros: Relatively untampered Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, displayed through a nice looking 7-inch IPS display. Excellent battery life. Convenience of having an all-in-one device. Well-priced for both a budget tablet and a budget smartphone.
Cons: Sluggish performance — the Intel chip inside is perhaps not really up to the task of running a tablet. Screen auto-brightness is too aggressive, and outdoor mode isn't really bright enough even outdoors. Holding it up to your head to make a
Verdict: I really want to like the Fonepad, and in some respects I do. For the price, this is a very competitive device with fantastic battery life, Jelly Bean and the ability to make calls. Sadly, the internals let it down, and I fear that its low price...
