Asus FonePad puts a phone in your tablet
Yes, I know it's enormous.
It's a 7-inch tablet, but you can talk on it like a phone.
Hello, I'm Richard Trenholm of CNET and I'm holding the Asus phone pad.
Now, if you thought the Samsung Galaxy Note was an oversized phone then you ain't seen nothing yet.
This is a 7-inch tablet that allows you to make and receive phone calls.
So, the phone pad has a 7-inch 1280 x 800 high definition screen.
It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is pretty much the latest version; allows you to download all the usual apps and games and buy your videos and movies and music stuff from the Google Play store.
It comes with 16 or 32 GB of storage for your music and movies and your apps and snaps.
It has all the usual Android features like the multitasking app launcher here.
You also get a camera on this phone, but it's only a low resolution camera for video chats.
It's not a
full resolution camera.
As it's an Android device, you go all the usual apps and widgets, which you can install on your home screens, give you all the latest updates without opening up an app and you can sort it down from the top to see all your notifications and have access to this handy little shortcut toggles here so things like turning on and off your Bluetooth or your Wi-Fi.
So, that's the Asus phone pad.
And one of the best things about this is the price.
It's gonna start at a very reasonable $250 in the U.S. or 180 pounds in the U.K., which makes this-- for an oversized phone, it's quite an undersized price tag.

No, it's massive, honestly.
