Other notable tech sepcs include a 7-inch display with 800 x 1280 pixel resolution, 3G and WiFi connectivity along with a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. Like the recent ASUS Fonepad 7 FE171CG it looks like the design is flat and thin as well with controls that are no longer slanted at an angle. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet, but it should appear here in Malaysia soon with the next Fonepad 7 refresh.
