ASUS, $ 329 ( 8GB) asus.com.au
IS even a 6- inch phablet too small for you? If so, Asus has a solution in its mighty big phone, or reasonably small tablet, the Fonepad. This 7- inch touchscreen device is designed to fulfil both purposes, offering a number keypad even Mr Magoo could see and a speaker and microphone that reaches from your ear to beyond your mouth. As a tablet, it is standard 7- inch fare, with a 1.2GHz chip and 1GB RAM running Google Android Jelly Bean software. Its 1280x800 pixel screen is good from any angle, thanks to In- Plane Switching technology, it offers space for a memory card to boost its 8GB memory, and cameras front and back offer basic snapshots and video. The Fonepad is missing 4G connectivity and may look strange beside your head, but its 4270mAh battery is something no other phone can match.
