Asus has posted teasers for the India launch of its FonePad tablet. The company has not revealed any specific dates or pricing right now, and has just stated that it is ‘coming soon.’ If UK pricing of the tablet is any indication, it might get a price-tag around INR 15K in the country, thus joining the previously launched Memo Pad in budget tablet segment.
Asus FonePad was originally announced at Mobile World Congress in February and is powered by Intel Atom processor. This will be the second tablet from Asus to come with 3G support after the recently released Asus-made Nexus 7 3G tablet.
Asus FonePad runs on Android 4.1 and comes with a 7-inch display. The tablet packs 3G connectivity and support voice-calling via GSM networks. Asus has pre-loaded several apps on the Fonepad like Floating App for easy management of running apps and simpler multi-tasking; SuperNote lite for handwritten notes and drawing; and WebStorage Office Online for Microsoft Office-compatible document editing on the move.
