Asus Fonepad 7 tablet with voice calling refreshed with improved specs
Asus has announced a refresh to its Fonepad 7 tablet that comes with voice calling support.

The new Asus Fonepad 7 is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor alongside 1GB of RAM but retains the same 7-inch 1280x800 display. It comes with dual-front speakers with Asus SonicMaster audio technology.

The new Fonepad 7 is 10.5mm thick and weighs 340g. It packs in a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera, and a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with a 100 continuous-shot 'burst' mode and 1080p full-HD video recording, which is a big improvement over its predecessor with the same name.

The tablet comes with a 3950mAh battery that is rated at up to 28 hours of 3G talk time, 35 days of standby time and up to 10 hours of video playback.

Asus Fonepad 7 will be available in 8GB, 16GB or 32GB onboard storage options and a microSDHC card slot for expansion. The tablet comes with 5GB of Asus WebStorage free for lifetime as well the Asus WebStorage Office suite of apps.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and built-in 3G with HSPA+ mobile data with download speeds up to 42Mbps and uploads of 5.76Mbps. Fonepad 7 can also be used for voice calls using the built-in noise-cancelling digital microphone or an optional Bluetooth headset.

Asus Fonepad 7 runs Android 4.2 and comes with some custom apps like SuperNote app for drafting notes and the Floating App that helps users multi-task by giving them the option to open up to six apps simultaneously onscreen.

There's no word yet on the pricing of the improved Fonepad 7 or when it will be available in the retail market.
