Asus Philippines recently announced the new Asus Fonepad 7 (FE170CG). However, unlike the first Fonepad 7, this model has a lower resolution display (1024×600 vs. 1280×800) and lower storage (4GB vs. 8GB). I guess that’s the trade off for the P5,995 price tag.

This actually looks decent. And don’t let the dual core CPU fool you. These Intel chips perform better than some quad core processors. Personally though, the 4GB storage is a deal breaker for me. But the price is attractive for what it offers.

Key Specs:

  • 7-inch capacitive WSGA (1024×600)
  • 1.2GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Z2520 w/ Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
  • 4GB internal storage, expandable up to 64GB via microSD
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Dual microSIM; dual standby
  • 2MP rear cam with LED Flash
  • VGA front cama
  • 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Miracast support, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • 3950mAh Li-Po battery
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (Upgradable to Android 4.4 KitKat)
  • Colors: black, white, red, blue
  • P5,995

The Asus Fonepad 7 (FE170CG) is available through Asus Concept Stores and authorized retailers for P5,995.
