Asus Fonepad Note FHD 6: Look Out Samsung Galaxy Note?

We’ve seen the 7-inch Asus Fonepad (not to be confused with the two-in-one PadFone 2). Well, now we have the Fonepad Note. Confused yet? The ‘6’ denotes its 6-inch, super-bright (450-nit) high-definition (1920x1080) display, and you get a stylus for handwritten input.

Part tablet, part 3G phone – the FonePad Note is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor. No word yet on Australian pricing/availability, or if there will be a 4G version. We do know it’ll run Android 4.2.2.

The FHD 6 packs a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of recording 1080p video. There’s also MicroSD card slot to expand on the built-in storage.

Interesting times in the Note/phablet/kill-me-now space, as rumours swell that Samsung may have a 13-megapixel camera-equipped Galaxy Note III almost ready to show... potentially as soon as later this week.
