Asus just threw its hat in the supersized phone ring with the Asus Fonepad Note, a 6-inch device equipped with a stylus that promises to give the Galaxy Note 2 a run for its money.

At its event at Computex 2013 in Taiwan, Asus unveiled a series of new Android devices, including a competitor to the Note 2, Optimus G Pro, and other 5.5-inch+ devices. The Asus Fonepad Note is equipped with a 6-inch Full HD Super IPS+ display, a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor (Intel just scored another high profile design win it seems), 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, and a 1.2MP front shooter.

The device also features two frontal stereo speakers, a la HTC One, and, very importantly, a stylus. The device is said to support HSPA+ connectivity, with download speeds of up to 42Mbps.

We’ll update this post as soon as we learn anything about the price and availability of the Asus Fonepad Note.
