Regarding the market competitors and strategy, ASUS has launched this new Tab in order to defeat their main rival - Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Neo. The reason why I came up with this thought is that these both tablets are similarly priced where ASUS Fonepad 7 Dual Sim is available for a price of Rs. 12,999 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Neo for Rs. 12,740. Samsung Tab3 Neo's single sim support has proved to be one of the major drawbacks as compared to the ASUS's Fonepad 7.

It comes with the two variants - stylish grey & charming white and both the color variants are enough to fascinate the tech enthusiasts.
