    Asus is bringing a new Fonepad to market. The company uses the name to describe a device which blurs the lines between a phone and tablet by giving you a tablet-sized display, but the ability to make phone calls.
    The new Asus Fonepad 7 features a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, an Intel Atom processor, and generally looks a lot like last year’s model — but it’s expected to have a faster processor and a better camera, among other things.

    The Asus FonePad 7 showed up at some retail sites in Europe in August, with a price tag of around $300. Now Asus has posted a .
    The new tablet features stereo front-facing speakers, a microSD card slot, and a 5MP rear camera with an F2.4 lens. It’ll be available in black or white.
    Other specs are expected to include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor with PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics.
    While those specs aren’t exactly top-of-the-line for a tablet or a smartphone, they should be good enough to run Android Jelly Bean and handle most Android apps.
    Overall, the Fonepad 7 seems to be aimed at budget-conscious shoppers who don’t want to buy a tablet and a smartphone, and who don’t mind either holding a huge phone up to their head or using a headset.

    While the Fonepad 7 is meant to serve more as a budget-friendly device, the Fonepad 6, which was also revealed today at IFA 2013, is a little more high-end device, meant to take on the Notes of the world. Much like the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Fonepad 6 boasts a feature-enhanced stylus for use with a handful of ASUS exclusive apps. Whether or not performance of the stylus can keep up with the Note remains to be seen, but the rest of the device should have no problem. The Fonepad 6 runs on Android 4.2 and utilizes a 6-inch full HD Super IPS+ display, 2GB of RAM, a 2.0GHz Intel Atom Z2580 dual-core processor, 8MP camera and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera. The only area where the Fonepad 7 tops the Fonepad 6 is in cellular bands. The Fonepad 6 features UMTS 850, 900, 1900, 2100MHz, for Europe and the US, and GSM/EDGE 850, 900, 1900, 2100MHz, also for Europe and the US.
