Asus and Intel Join Together To Create Fonepad

Intel is desperate to enter the tablet market. It has joined forces with Asus to create Fonepad. A 7-inch tablet running Android. There are two main selling point with the Fonepad, it can make phone calls and its price. For $249, it is quite a bargain.
The already blurry line between larger and larger mobile phones and smaller and lighter tablets has now become even fuzzier with Asus’s announcement this week of the “Fonepad,” a 7-inch Android * tablet powered by an Atom™ Z2420 processor platform. Yes, it’s a tablet that makes phone calls. Call it a “phablet.”
