In a race of Voice Calling smart tablets, here joins one more tablet from the house of ASUS which is dubbed as “Fonepad” as the name itself suggests that it’s a “pad” with the “fone” capability. Apparently, this is the company’s first tablet which is here in the 7 incher segment which comes with the IPS Display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels running on the latest Jellybean 4.1 firmware along with few more specs and features which we have summed up below. It will be interesting to see on how this tablet will be getting a response considering that Google too has released ASUS Tablets of 7 inches which doesn’t have calling facility though but falls on almost same price level.
