At the IFA trade show in Berlin, Asus announced the FonePad 7, a 7 inch tablet with voice call support and FonePad Note 6 a Phablet. The Note 6 phablet also comes with a stylus. The pricing details were not revealed.

Android 4.2 runs on this Phablet with 2GB RAM and optional 16, 32 GB storage. The Note 6 houses a 1.2MP front camera and an 8MP rear camera. Asus FonePad Note 6 will be available in white and black colors. Other features are 3G(42Mbps), Wi-Fi (a/g/g/n), NFC, Bluetooth 3 and GPS with A-GPS / GLONASS. FonePad Note 6 houses a 3200 mAh non-removable battery.

This pablet also comes with a stylus (similar to as seen on Samsung Galaxy Note handsets). Looking at the specs I think it will be much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and probably could compete with the Galaxy Note 2.
