Asus FonePad Note Set to Take On the Galaxy Note Series


Asus FonePad Note

When the Samsung Galaxy Note first arrived “on scene”, there were many folks that felt it was way too damn big. Fast-forwarding a bit, and 5-inch+ handsets are very common. There are also quite a few devices that exist in the 5.5-inch + categories, calling themselves Note competitors.

What many of these handsets are missing is what sets the Galaxy Note apart from other “big phones” or phablets – a stylus. Asus is changing this, introducing its Asus FonePad Note, a 6-inch Full HD Android handset that comes with a digital stylus and a powerful 1.6GHz dual-core Atom Z2560 processor.

Outside of the 1080p display, Intel processor and stylus, we also get 2GB RAM, a DC-HSPA+ modem, 8MP back cam, 1.2MP front-cam, and front stereo speakers. Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t feature LTE, which may or may not be a deal breaker for some.

This certainly looks like an interesting device, though we currently have no clue how much it will cost, when it will arrive, or to what markets. What do you think, if priced aggressively, would you consider the Asus FonePad Note over the Galaxy Note series?
