ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 keeps Intel's guts, adds stylus to the mix

Another cool device ASUS unveiled at Computex is the Fonepad Note FHD 6, which is like the original Fonepad’s younger brother that has a slightly smaller screen (6 inches), while adding stylus to the mix. That screen supports full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution, while the rest of the FHD 6’s specs include Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front-facing one, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity. The lack of LTE suggests the Fonepad Note FHD 6 in its current form won’t be available in the U.S. with Europeans first getting it (though it’s unclear when).

Price is also a mystery but I’m sure we’ll get that and other details shortly. If ASUS doesn’t ask too much of a premium for this Fonepad model, it could easily move a few million units. Phablet devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note series and LG Optimus G Pro are getting more popular with the day and we can see a slightly smaller Fonepad succeeding in the market if doesn’t end up breaking a bank. More details as we get ’em…
