ASUS to launch Fonepad in Malaysia on April 9
ASUS is on its way to bring the recently-unveiled Padfone to
Malaysia. The 7-inch slate with built-in 3G voice calling functionality
will hit the stores in Malaysia as early as next month.
A technical seminar will be held in KL on April 9. Judging from the
invitation card that weve just received, ASUS Malaysia will most
certainly launch the Fonepad on the very same day. The slate might not
be available purchase right after the event. Probably will take one or
two weeks to get to store shelves. How much will it cost? ASUS Padfone
retails at NT $8,900
($302) for the 16GB model in Taiwan, so if we convert the pricing to
Malaysian Ringgit, that will be RM 927. But expect to see price mark-up.
RM 999 will be a nice number.
To recap on the specs,the Fonepad features a sleek metallic design
with a 7-inch HD screen display with 1280 x 800 resolution and IPS
technology for wide viewing angles. It is powered by the new Intel Atom
Z2420 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, with 1GB of RAM and two storage
options 8GB or 16GB, expandable with a microSD card slot (up to 32GB).
Users also get 5GB of free lifetime ASUS WebStorage.
It comes with a 3MP auto focus camera (for selected models only)
capable of recording 720p HD video on the back and a 1.2MP front facing
camera for video calling. It packs 4270mAh battery, giving users up to 9
hours of battery life.
Other features include 3G, HSPA+, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
3.0,Micro-USB port, 3.5mm headphone socket, noise-cancelling digital
microphone, speaker and micro-SIM slot. Fonepad runs on Android 4.1
Jelly Bean and comes with a number of exclusive ASUS productivity apps.
