Asus give their Fonepad a little spec bump for those in need of more raw power!

   Asus' Fonepad is already a great device, we've had the pleasure of getting a bit of hands on time with the phablet(?) and it is already snappy, fun to use and somehow still perplexing. But, apparently the current set up isn't enough for some people and reviews have pointed out that when lots of thkngs are gonig on at once or intensive games are running that there are some hiccups.

   Those hiccups Asus is hoping to iron out with a slight spec bump to their Fonepad. The standard 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 processor and 16GB of built-in storage are being swapped out for a new slightly faster 1.6GHz Z2460 processor and a new 32GB of memory option which also has the same microSD expandability which was on offer before.

   According to the guys over at Engadget the new and improved model will be a little more expensive, setting you back NT$10,900 which when converted into US dollars is about $360 and in British Pounds that's £238, which isn't too bad considering that it's a £58 premium over the standard version which costs £180 in the UK.

   We're not sure where this device will be available at the moment, but when Asus give us more information we'll be sure to let you know!
