Asus Fonepad is a series of tablet computers with mobile cellular telephony capability (and so is, therefore, considered a "phablet") developed by ASUS.[1] It is the first phablet to breach the 6.9-inch diagonal screen measure barrier, thereby causing it to break-into the 7-inch screen size realm traditionally occupied only by true tablet computers which have no cellular telephony capability.[2]

On August 26, 2014, Asus launched the Asus Fonepad 7 (FE7530CXG),[3] which is a 3G phone calling tablet with a Intel Atom Z3560 processor, 1GB RAM, a 7-inch 1280x800 screen, and Android 4.4 Kitkat OS.
