Until now it was Memo Pad 7 and 10 did the talking from the Asus Company after brief introduction of costlier but worth Transformer tablet PCs.  FonePad is more alike the Nexus 7 which Google doesn’t want the Asustek to come in the market. Infact Google has warned Asustek to put an end to their partnership if Asus comes with a Nexus alike tablet. So this way, Asus has to come up with Intel powered tablet PC varying some of the features and coming out in limited market.

FonePad 7 filing date was January 30, 2013 and it’s confirmed that it’s a tablet PC.

We learnt that FonePad 7 has already appeared in various leaks online with name ME371MG. So finally ME371MG would called as FonePad 7 tablet.
