Asus FonePad 7 is a 7-inch Android phone for giants (pictures)

At 7 inches, this really isn't a phone for those of you after a portable little device to slide into your jeans.

There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back for snapping shots of your food for Instagram.

It's at least fairly slim, though you'll still look silly holding it to your face.

There's a front-facing camera, too, for video calling over Skype or Google Hangouts.
