Asus intros a new Fonepad 7 with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board
Asus this week announced a brand new Fonepad 7 (model number FE375CL), which runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, being the company's first Fonepad to come with this version of Google's OS.

While the new Fonepad doesn't look too different from the Fonepad 7 FE170CG that was released in 2014, it brings important improvements when it comes to specs. The device is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3530 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, and sports a 7-inch IPS display with 800 x 1200 pixels. It obviously lets you make phone calls, supporting micro SIM cards, LTE, and 3G connectivity. Furthermore, the Fonepad 7 features a 2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB or 16 GB of internal memory, 5 GB of cloud storage space (for life), and microSD card slot.

The Fonepad 7 FE375CL weighs 299 grams, measures 108.9 x 194.3 x 9.8 mm, and comes with a battery that can provide up to 12 hours of usage time.

The new Fonepad 7 will be released in Taiwan first, for prices starting at around $250. Asus didn't say if it plans to launch the device around the world, though its presence on the company's global website (see the source link below) suggests that it does.

Hell of a deal for what is basically a 7 inch fully featured Smartphone with stellar battery life and snappy performance.

I like Asus as I have bought recedly the fonepad 8. Asus is doing ridiculous decisions for their products like having a bad camera without flash and low resolution screen. The ideal one would be a 7" with FHD screen, 2gb ram, 32gb internal memory, dual sim with Lee support and a nice camera like zenfon which is supper in ultra light situation in 13mp. There is a lot of people that they need a 7" phone (8" is big for use as aphone) for elder people and people with eyesight problems. There is a big market also for people that they do not want a separate tablet and a big phone.
