The ZenPad was announced at the ZenFest earlier this year. Yesterday at the bloggers event in Bangalore, Peter Chang, Regional Head – South Asia & Country Manager of Asus India, announced the the ZenPad 7.0 will be from Oct 9. ZenPad comes in three variants: ZenPad 8.0, ZenPad 7.0 and ZenPad C 7.0. The ZenPad C 7.0 and ZenPad 8.0 will be available by end of this month, while the ZenPad 7.0 will be available exclusively on FlipKart for a price of Rs 11999.
The ZenPad 7.0 is powered by an Intel Atom processor with 1 GB RAM and has an internal memory of 16GB. Storage is expandable with a memory card, by upto 64 GB. It has an 8 MP camera on the rear and a 2 MP camera on the front. It will be available in black and while color variants. It runs on Android 5.0 with the ZenUI on top. It has loads of features on the UI layer, but what impressed me the most is the Audio cover.
The ZenPad can also be purchased with the Audio cover for Rs 14999. This Audio cover is not connected wirelessly, but it is a hard wired connection. The back panel is removable and the audio cover can be fitted. The audio cover has multiple speakers with DTS sound standards and a sub woofer. The sound quality of the tablet increases manifold with the audio cover attached to it.
The ZenPad 8.0 will have an 8 inch display and otherwise its specs are identical to the ZenPad 7.0. It is priced at Rs 14999 and with the Audio cover, it will cost you Rs 17999. The ZenPad C 7.0 is powered by a slighly less powerful Intel processor, the C3230 and has 5MP camera at the back and a VGA camera on the front. It will be available for Rs 8999 later this month.
