Wondering when you might be able to get your hands on the 7-inch phoneblet called the ASUS FonePad? Good news — ASUS finally has those details for us to digest. The price tag should please those of you who are looking for a tablet but not looking to spend much as it will only cost you £179.99, or about $275. For that, you’re getting Intel’s 1.2GHz Atom Z2420 chipset, a 7-inch 1280×800 display, a 4,270 mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage, a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (upgradeable to Android 4.2 over time).

Folks will be able to preorder the tablet in a few days as retailers Amazon and Carphone Warehouse are slated to put it up April 12th. Stock won’t arrive until April 26th, though, so there will be a couple of weeks of painful waiting until you have it in your possession. Now all you have to do is decide whether you want to view this as an oversized phone or a tablet with phone capabilities. We hope you decide to use this thing with a Bluetooth headset either way.
