Asus announced the Fonepad slate (it is a slate, right?) a few days ago at the MWC 2013 in Barcelona along with the Padfone Infinity. We krecent the Fonepad will come in two version - one with 8GB internal storage and a 3MP rear capturing camera for the APAC region, and a 16GB model without a rear capturing camera for the European markets.

Well, now we know the 16GB model will be hitting the shelves in Russia this month. It will cost €265 - slightly above what Asus has promised us - €219. We guess the Fonepad will be hitting other EU markets this March as well and we hope the price there stays closer to the one recommended by the manufacturer (smartphones and tablets tdiscontinue to cost more in Russia than in the EU).

In case you need a refresh the Fonapad is a 7” tablet with an IPS classy screen of 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. It also sports full phone functionality with 3G HSPA+ connectivity. The Fonepad is powered by an Intel Atom Z2420 chipset with a single-core Central Processing Units (CPU) clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and PowerVR SGX540 GPU. A microSD slot is available too plus 5GB web storage. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at launch. You can find our first-hand impressions from our MWC encounter with the Padfone correct here.
