Asus Fonepad hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 25 Feb 2013, 10:30

The Asus Fonepad is actually very well built for its mere $249 price it will land at in the US. Sturdy anodized aluminum chassis wraps the internals, and the brushed metal finish makes it seem much more premium than your average Android slate. We understand Asus has to make it stand out to entice buyers to try out the Intel-powered Android variety, and we don't complain as its buyers can only profit by the premium looks and feel in the hand...

Did the launcher crash after he switched the device orientation? That seems to be a problem with Asus tablets. My original Transformer (on android 4.0) does that! It isn't a problem because I keep docked in the keyboard (which effectively disables rotation) but I'd have hoped this would be fixed.

For that price I could see people buying it just to use as a tablet and ignore the phone part. If it had enough storage I'd give it a try. I'm guessing it has 16GB built in but I don't see it anywhere. Off to Google it!
