    ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 review - Improved entry-level ZenPad tablet phone for the masses

    Tablet phones or tablets with call capabilities have come a long way from the first days when people put 7-inch display devices to their ears. Apart from newer technologies, they have become thinner, slimmer and more compact, especially for the higher-end market. ASUS was one of the first to make such tablets for the entry-level market with their ASUS Fonepad tablets and now, they are replacing these well received devices with the new ASUS ZenPad range. Featuring the latest 64-bit Intel Atom x3 processors, dts-HD audio technologies and a more fashion conscious look and feel, the ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170C) is the most entry-level device on the ZenPad tablet range. In this day and age when it isn't uncommon to see someone using a tablet phone to make a call does the ASUS ZenPad C really offer improvements over the earlier ASUS Fonepad 7? We find out in our full review of the ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 in this article.

    ASUS ZenPad sneak peek reveals customizable tablet with 8MP cameras + fashion, power and audio cases

    Recently, ASUS and Intel Malaysia held a sneak peek preview of the upcoming ASUS ZenPad tablets, which TechNave.com was privileged to attend. While the ASUS ZenPad C was also available the star of the show was undoubtedly the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG). Featuring tech specs that include the 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom x3 C3230 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 7-inch display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and 8MP PixelMaster rear camera with autofocus, the main feature for the tablet is that it is the first one that you can customize. While it comes with a luxury-themed leather-textured plastic backplate called a Zen Case, this can be replaced with several other Zen Cases which include black, silver, orange and pastel blue (as added value, the ZenPad 7.0 will come with an extra free Zen Case). While we still don't have any pricing details yet, it has been revealed that the ZenPad 7.0 will be getting a lot of other accessories. This includes a fashionable leather clutch case called the Zen Clutch, the Power Case which adds on an extra 2000 mAh battery for a total 16 hours worth of battery life and the Audio Cover which features 5.1 channel surround sound, 6 built-in speakers and 1 sub woofer which combined with the dts-HD sound technology in the tablet makes for an instant boombox tablet. 

  • Rumours: ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 benchmarked?

    Rumours: ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 benchmarked?

    Just a day ahead of a sneak preview for the ASUS ZenPad tablets and we've just received screencaps of some benchmarks from an anonymous tipster. The benchmarks include AnTuTu and 3DMark, both benchmarks that we often use here at TechNave.com. The AnTuTu benchmark for the ZenPad C 7.0 is scored at 22396 which is much higher than the entry-level ASUS Fonepad 7 tablet it may replace. A quick look at the previous ASUS Fonepad 7 review reveals an AnTuTu score of just 19030 and that was without any PowerSaver function turned on. The new ZenPad C 7.0 is powered by Intel's latest Intel Atom x3 or SoFIA processor and offers built-in 3G connectivity along with features like DTS-HD audio technology. We'll be able to tell you more tomorrow after the sneak preview but so far, these benchmarks are indications that users will get a good performing device with the ASUS ZenPad C and other ZenPad tablets. No Malaysia release dates or official pricing details yet, but the ZenPad C is expected to cost around RM499. Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow.

    Another year and another ASUS Fonepad 7, but wait, recent announcements have revealed that everything will be replaced by an ASUS ZenPad tablet with the ASUS ZenPad 8.0ZenPad 7.0 andZenPad C. While the Malaysia release date is expected sometime in August or afterwards an anonymous tipster recently sent us pics of the ASUS ZenPad C along with the bumper casing. The pics reveal a slim and premium shape different from previous Fonepad and MeMo Pad tablets. The pics also reveal some features, such as DTS-HD audio technology, something which we'd hardly expect from an entry-level device like the ZenPad C. The tablet is also expected to have tech specs that include the latest 64-bit Intel Atom x3 or SoFIA processor adding that much more value to those who like making calls with tablets. Stay tuned for more developments and many thanks to the anonymous tipster.
