Asus has been famous for creating interesting and unique devices. In years past, you could buy a Fonepad which as you might expect, is a tablet that can make phone calls. Those devices were largely 7-inches, but Asus has dabbled with an 8-inch tablet phone (Fonepad 8) in the past. So to see a phone capable 8-inch ZenPad is not that much of stretch for Asus.
Fast forward to 2016 and Asus is giving you a bit of added use for the new ZenPad 3 8.0 (Z581KL). It makes phone calls! This isn’t exactly a much talked about feature in this new tablet, but it’s something that can provide value. Would you want to hold an 8-inch tablet to your head in public? This is a personal choice! However you can use a headset and you can use the speaker phone rather than tablet-to-ear.
The “KL” indicated Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE enabled.We do not know the future of this tablet and whether it’s coming to the US market or not. It’s entirely possible that there will be a non 4G LTE version, but that’s just pure speculation on our part. You can buy the ZenPad 3 8.0 (Z581KL) in various countries already.
