    ASUS Fonepad - Tablet and mobile phone!

    The ASUS fonepad commercial keeps popping up on any youtube video I watch and I was wondering is this version available in Australia and for how much? I can find the 8GB version but not the new 32GB one.



    Just looking into it, I didn't realise the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310 offered phone calls as well, I know the iPad Mini and full size don't offer phone options. Does the Google Nexus 7?

    For Google Nexus 7 you need to get an app called Tablet Talk


    Google Nexus 7 - How To Send Text Messages and Phone Calls
    In this video i show how to send text messages and make phone calls using your Nexus 7 tablet.
    You would need to download an app on both your android phone and tablet in order to be able to do this.
    The name of the APP is Tablet Talk

    Intel Atom, wonder how that compares to the other processors out there? Also it can only run a max of a 32GB Micro SD, that's a bit low for what will be used for mostly tablet duties I'd imagine.

    It looks cool but I don't have cargo pants for every day of the week, how do people carry these things.

    Finally found a shop in Australia selling it, and the best price seems to be from JB Hi-Fi: $298, a lot cheaper than I would have expected!
