Asus set to unveil 7-inch Intel-backed Fonepad Asus will be debuting a 7-inch Fonepad at the upcoming Mobile World Congress event this month, say sources.
A couple of leaked photos show the Fonepad featuring an aluminum back and an Intel Inside badge on the back.

The sources seem to have a full spec list, as well: "1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 processor, PowerVR SGX540 graphics, and 1GB of RAM. Its 7-inch screen will be of the IPS LCD kind and will sport a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. A couple of cameras will be on board as well a 3.2MP on the back and a 1.2MP front-facing snapper. The internal 4,270mAh battery should last through 9.5 hours of continuous use."

Perhaps most notably, the tablet will have voice calling capability, although it is unclear how. The device will be priced at $200.

We will have more news at MWC.
