Asus is all set to make an impact on the Indian domestic market, and it seems like the company has set off in the right direction with the official unveiling of the new Asus Fonepad 7 Dual Sim voice-calling tablet.
The company has launched its new dual-sim, voice calling enabled tablet, dubbed Fonepad 7 Dual Sim, in the Indian market at a price of Rs 12,999. If you remember closely, the tablet was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress held at Barcelona, earlier this year.
The dual-SIM version of the FonePad 7 is basically the same tablet which was launched back at the IFA in Berlin last year. However, the only difference that remains here is the built in processor.
The dual-SIM variant of the device is powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2520 dual-core SoC, instead of the 1.6GHz Clover Trail Plus Z2560 dual-core processor on the single-SIM variant.
"Our Fonepad series available in the country received assenting response and was jubilant in making a noticeable mark in the phablet market. Taking up the functionality level further, we have introduced the new variant - Fonepad 7 Dual Sim," says Peter Chang, Regional Head - South Asia & Country Manager - System Business Group - Asus India.
"Dual Sim devices have gained substantial consumer attention in the country. Our new dual sim device combines the widely accepted innovation and all the necessary functionality, its availability at much lesser price point, which makes it even more desirable."
