ASUS FonePad hits the UK April 26, pre-order Friday for £179.99

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013 With No Comments »

The awesome looking ASUS FonePad 7-inch tablet was revealed back at Mobile World Congress in Spain, and ever since then we’ve been wondering when we can get our own. Mainly because this 7-inch Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet runs an Intel processor, and doubles as a smartphone at the same time. Yes, you’ll still look ridiculous holding something that big to your ear, but today we learned ASUS will offer it at a pretty competitive price.


This afternoon Samsung announced their Galaxy Note 8.0 with phone capabilities will run $399 in the USA later this month, but now we’re getting word that ASUS has plans to severely undercut Samsung. The ASUS FonePad 7-inch slate will only be £179.99. In US dollars that comes out to only $275 give or take a few. Which makes it a pretty darn good deal.

According to reports the FonePad will hit the UK starting April 26th for just £179.99, and pre-orders will be open for all starting this Friday, April 12th. It sounds like our previous reports of an April release date were accurate after all.

As a reminder the FonePad comes with a 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display and a single-core 1.2 GHz Intel ATOM processor and 1GB of RAM. The model priced above also rocks 16GB of internal storage, micro-SD support, and of course can make phone calls when you’re not busy using that 7-inch screen like a tablet.
