We are seeing more Android devices with Intel Processors inside. The latest is a 7-inch Asus tablet which has full call and text functions, and HSDPA connectivity. In essence, it is a 7-inch smartphone, much like the original Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Priced at Php14,995 the Android powered Asus Fonepad Tablet is a competitively priced product, undercutting the price of the 3G version of the Asus built Google Nexus 7 and the Apple iPad mini. It comes with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) a 7-inch HD (720 x 1280) display, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, expandable via a MicroSD card. It also comes with a 3 MP primary camera and a 1.2 MP from camera.
What makes it different from the rest of the Android tablets is the dual core Intel Atom Z2420 inside. This single core processor benches around 12000 to 13000 points on the AnTuTu benchmarks with a HD display. This puts it neck and neck with the quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 found in the Nexus 7. Asus also promises that this tablet has a good 9 hours of battery life.
