1. MWC 2013: Asus FonePad
The FonePad is a 7-inch Android tablet, that presumably will have Google less than impressed about Asus' decision to release a competitor to the Asus-made Google Nexus 7. It comes with 16GB of internal storage, a 1280 x 800 display and 3G so you can make Dom Jolly-style phone calls on it. Interestingly, it's running on an Intel processor (seemingly around 1.2GHz), as opposed to the Nvidia/Qualcomm CPUs normally seen in mobile devices.
Price: $249 (£165) | Release Date: March 2013
