The ASUS Fonepad is excellent as a compact tablet PC. It is easy to use, fast, intuitive, and the screen is bright, crisp, with vivid colors. It is light and easy to carry in a small purse or a big jacket pocket.
However, if you buy a Fonepad to be your main mobile phone, you will probably be disappointed. It is too big to be a cell phone, and you will probably look ridiculous with such a big device at the side of your head. We did not understand why ASUS did not include a good earphone with the device.
If you really carry a tablet and a cell phone every place you go, and want to carry only one device, the Fonepad can be a good option, however. But do not forget to buy a good earphone with a microphone.
The ASUS Fonepad is excellent if you see it as a compact tablet with the plus of cell phone capabilities. You can use it as a backup phone, and also enjoy the 3G network.
