The Asus ZenPad series that was unveiled back in August, has now hit India in the form of three tablets, two having 7-inch screens and one arriving with an 8-inch display. The ZenPad 8.0 and ZenPad C 7.0 are scheduled to be made available in late October, while the ZenPad 7.0 is up for grabs already through the company’s physical outlets and online.
Apart from making this announcement, the Taiwanese brand also revealed its intention to produce the Zenfone 2 Laser and ZenFone Go in India. It could mean cheaper devices for customers.
