    yung pinagkaiba nito sa single sim na fonepad 7 is yung processor – intel z2560 with clock speed 1.6ghz and yung dimension 196.8 x 120 x 10.5 mm. pakicorrect nlng kung may mali :D.

    • Both the ASUS Product Guide (distributed to the press during the launch last night) and the press release from Eason de Guzman identify the processor as a 1.2GHz Z2520. Kevin probably used one or the other for the specs. Maybe the 1.6GHz Z2560 is another model that isn’t here yet?

    so which is faster now, the snapdragon or this intel chipset?

    • Cristy says:

      You should be more specific. That’s like asking… “Which is faster now, this car or a Toyota?”. That makes NO SENSE.

      If you’re asking which Snapdragon line this Intel chip is faster than, it’s faster than the Snapdragon 200 and 400 line. The Snapdragon 600 and 800 are still faster than this Intel Z2520.

    how about their fonepad 7 tricover?available na rin ba? problema kasi nang asus d nila sinasama mga accessories nila pag launch nang isang model

    Your article states that this phone will be sold at P8,995. Yet, ASUS dealers are selling it for nearly P13,000. I have yet to find a store that sells it for its published retail price.

    The strength of this phablet is its value for money at P8,995. At P13,000, there are better options available.

      Teri

      The P13K is the old model which this is replacing- I have looked everywhere and have not been able to find the new model in stock yet
