The ASUS Fonepad officially lands on Philippine shores next Tuesday, May 14, 2013. ASUS PH will be having a media event on that evening to showcase the features of their newest product. Of course the main selling point is that this gadget has phone functionalities which means you get the benefits of your mobile phone and tablet in just one device. The price tag is also very competitive given the specs as it’s expected that it will debut locally for a little over Php13,000.
