Phone-tablet gains boost to processor, internal storage

Asus is making a number of changes to its Fonepad, increasing a number of core specifications for customers in Taiwan. The 7-inch phone-tablet, seen by Electronista earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, will receive a processor upgrade from the current 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 to the faster 1.6GHz Z2460, also from Intel.

Storage will be bumped up from 16GB to 32GB in this second version, according to Engadget, with other specifications remaining the same, such as the 1280x800-resolution IPS screen, 1GB of RAM, and the ability to make phone calls over 3G.

Both the original and upgraded versions will go on sale in Taiwan, with the new version selling for NT$10,900 ($360) compared to the original's NT$8,990 ($300) price tag. It is unclear if the same upgraded model will make the transition into other markets.
