New Asus Fonepad HD 7 (K00E) pictured, Intel Atom Z2560 CPU confirmed

The Asus Fonepad HD 7 that we told you about last month is real, and the Bluetooth SIG has already published an image of it (here) – probably without Asus’ consent.

The SIG confirms that the new Fonepad (model number K00E) comes with an Intel Atom Z2560 Clover Trail+ processor – unlike the original Fonepad, which has a slightly older Intel Atom Z2420 Lexington chipset.

Also confirmed are 3G connectivity, dual speakers (visible on the front), and a 7 inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels. From what was previously rumored, the Fonepad HD 7 should further offer a 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB to 32GB of internal memory, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

At the moment, the original Asus Fonepad (available since April) costs €230 in Europe. Naturally, the Fonepad HD 7 will be more expensive, but probably not by much. We don’t know when Asus intends to announce the new tablet. We will let you know when it happens anyway.

    Because that’s how they called it. MWC13 Fonepad; IFA13 Fonepad 7. Specs and photo are the same.
