Asus launches a new FonePad 7 with Lollipop and 4G connectivity

Android 5.0 and support for calls over 4G networks is the latest FonePad’s claim to fame. 


With the Asus Zenfone 2 and the optical zoom-toting Zenfone Zoom made official at CES last month, the Taiwanese manufacturer has turned its attention to tablets and has unveiled its latest FonePad 7. Like previous FonePads (which all have the same name and are only differentiated by their model numbers), the latest iteration supports making phone calls, and has the honor of being the first tablet from Asus to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box and have support for 4G LTE connectivity.

Under the hood, the new FonePad 7 is powered by an Intel Atom Z3530 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and 2GB of RAM. It has a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 8/16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3G and LTE connectivity, and battery life that can offer up to 12 hours of video playback.

Like all of Asus’ recently released products, the new FonePad 7 is pretty affordable thanks to its $250 price tag. The tablet will go on sale in Taiwan sometime later this month; Asus hasn’t said if it intends to bring the new FonePad to other markets, but it probably will do so considering all previous FonePads were made available in markets outside the company’s home country.
