ASUS today announced the new Fonepad Note 6, a sleek 6-inch Android tablet with a razor-sharp Full HD display that offers both multi-touch and stylus input, and built-in HSPA+ 3G for telephone calls and mobile internet. ASUS Fonepad™ Note 6 is designed for people who prefer the larger screen of a tablet for apps and entertainment, but who don’t want a separate smartphone just for telephone calls and internet access on the move. Just 10.3mm thick and with a low 210g weight, Fonepad Note 6 slips easily into a pocket, yet packs a brilliant 6-inch Super IPS+ display with a stunning 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution that makes apps, games and web pages look exquisitely sharp. Super IPS+ (In-Plane Switching) display technology ensures a bright, vibrant image with wide viewing angles and great daylight visibility, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology gives fantastic sound quality with the dual front speakers.
High-speed mobile internet and comprehensive stylus control
ASUS Fonepad Note 6 (ME560CG) is powered by the new Intel® Atom™ Z2580 processor with Hyper-Threading technology for an outstanding combination of multi-tasking performance and energy efficiency, with up to 23 hours 3G talk-time and 6.5 hours of video playback. DC-HSPA+ gives ultra-fast mobile internet access, with up to 42Mbit/s download and 5.76Mbit/s upload speeds, while a noise-cancelling mic ensures crystal-clear calls.
In addition to a 10-point capacitive multi-touch display for smooth and responsive fingertip control of Android 4.2, Fonepad Note 6 also features a stylus for handwritten input with exclusive ASUS apps. Instant Page launches automatically when the stylus is ejected from its silo to offer immediate note-taking, no matter which other app is in use, while Smart Crop makes it easy to save an image in any app just by circling the desired area. ‘Smart Peek’ previews give the same kind of quick access to app content that PC users have long enjoyed, too, with just a tap of the stylus.
Android 4.2 with exclusive ASUS features
ASUS Fonepad Note 6 also features a host of other exclusive refinements throughout Android 4.2. Apps include tight integration of social network support and an improved native email app has a new threaded conversation view.
A new camera app also unlocks the power of the rear 8-megapixel and front 1.2-megapixel cameras with real-time previews of image effects, and easy adjustment of white balance and exposure. The ‘All Smiles’ feature intelligent selects the best facial expression from a sequential series of photos to automatically compose a shot in which all subjects are smiling, while the ‘Smart Remove’ feature seamlessly removes unwanted background objects and people to create the perfect photo.
Fonepad Note 6 is available in black or white, with 16GB or 32GB onboard storage. Both models also feature a microSDHC card slot for adding more.
Stylish and practical Side Flip Cover protection
ASUS Fonepad Note 6 also has an optional protective Side Flip Cover case made from durable synthetic materials that protects both the tablet back and screen. The Side Flip Cover is hinged on the left side for quick and easy opening, and has a non-slip rubberized finish.
