Intel-powered Asus FonePad caught in the wild prior to its official announcement

Intel-powered Asus FonePad caught in the wild prior to its official announcement

Asus likes combining words “Pad” and “Fone.” After making two “Padfones” they’re about to release their first “FonePad.” However, instead of using “standard” ARM-based chips, this device will rock an Intel-made Atom processor.

It is said that soon-to-be-launched device will come with a 7-inch tablet with 1280×800 pixels resolution. The processor built inside will be clocked at 1.2GHz, while the rest of the specs will include a 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front-facing one, 1GB of RAM, 8/16/32 GB of built-in storage, microSD memory card slot and a 4,270mAh battery. Size wise, the FonePad will measure 196.6×120.1×10.4 mm and have a weight of 340 grams.

In other words, we’re talking about a low-to-mid end device which will hopefully be announced at Mobile World Congress, when we hope to get all the details and spend some short (but quality) hands-on time with it. Stay tuned…
