Editor's Review
By Seow Tein Hee, Digital Life, The Straits Times | 31-05-2013

The Asus Fonepad is a good example of how hard it has become to differentiate a tablet from a smartphone.

Most 3G-enabled tablets provide pure data connection, while the Fonepad's cellular features also allow it to receive and make calls.

A word of advice: Avoid taking or making a call on the tablet. You will look ridiculous holding a 7-inch tablet to your cheek. Pair it with a Bluetooth headset instead.

Weighing a mere 340g with a side profile of 10.4mm, the Fonepad managed to fit into the pockets of my baggy pants. If they had been skinny jeans, however, the Fonepad would probably not fit.

The Android tablet has features aplenty. Its customised user interface gives you instant access to functions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and screen brightness.

While most tablets use Qualcomm or Nvidia processors, the Fonepad uses Intel's Atom Z2420 processor. Its benchmark scores are not spectacular, but they do not reflect its actual performance. Menu transitions and webpages were rendered smoothly, while videos were viewed with minimal lag.

At this price, the Asus Fonepad's dual functionality as tablet and smartphone makes it a good bargain.
