Samsung revealed the Galaxy Note 8.0 and ASUS has the FonePad, a 7" tablet with phone functionality. The Android 4.1 based device has a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS LCD display, an Intel Atom Z2420 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, HSPA+, WiFi, microSD memory card reader, and a 4270mAh battery with up to seven hours of battery life. The device will arrive in March for $249 (219EUR).
In terms of hardware features, the FonePad has a smooth metal back (available in gray and gold), making it drastically different in appearance from the similarly sized Nexus 7. 'Round back you'll find a panel where all the usual antennae are, and hidden underneath are both the micro-SIM slot and the microSD reader. That microSD slot, by the way, supports 32GB cards, which should come in handy considering this has just 16GB of built-in storage. Additionally, the tablet has a 1.2-megapixel front camera, attached to a 7-inch, 1,280 x 800 IPS display.
