Asus Fonepad 8 launches this month for around $200
As its name suggests, the Asus Fonepad 8 is both a smartphone, and a tablet, featuring 3G connectivity and the ability to make phone calls (it even supports two SIM cards). The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and sports an 8-inch IPS display with 800 x 1280 pixels. Other features include stereo speakers, a 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB / 16 GB of internal memory. Asus initially announced that the Fonepad 8 would be powered by a 64-bit, 1.8 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor. However, the device’s product page that’s found on Asus’ global website mentions a 1.33 GHz Intel Atom Z3530 CPU (which is also a 64-bit chipset).
Is anyone looking forward to buying this giant smartphone / medium-sized tablet from Asus?
