Asus FonePad Note Phablet Revealed with 1080p Display, Intel Processor

Wait a minute, how did Asus just get away using the “Note” moniker? Samsung has already dominated the phablet market with its Note and Note II, but apparently Asus wants a taste of that success by launching a product with the same name.

The company on Monday introduced its FonePad Note device, a phablet with a 6-inch 1080p display, support for 42Mbps HSPA+ networks, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.2-megapixel camera with video chat, 2GB of RAM and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor. Oh, and there’s a stylus for good measure.

At least the FonePad Note isn’t as big as the ridiculously large original FonePad, which was first introduced during Mobile World Congress in February, and we’re excited to see the increasing number of large-screen smartphones on the market. Unfortunately, however, we still don’t know when the FonePad Note will land, or for how much.
