ASUS announces FonePad Note, a direct Samsung Galaxy Note II competitor, at it’s Computex 2013 event. The FonePad family basically depicts a tablet with an earpiece, like the one on the FonePad we reviewed, and the addition of “Note” represents ASUS’ adoption of the stylus.
The ASUS FonePad Note packs a six-inch screed with 1080p resolution and is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, aided by 2GB of RAM. There’s also an eight-megapixel main shooter, 1.2-megapixel webcam, and front-firing stereo speakers (a la HTC One). Also bundled is a stylus (this time, a la Samsung Galaxy Note) and the device will come pre-installed with software to take advantage of it (probably in the form of note-taking, memo, annotations, and other similar apps), on top of Android.
There’s no official information about pricing and availability at the moment.
