We’re not all that afraid of giant phones anymore. The time when the Galaxy Note seemed big has passed, Huawei is bringing the Ascend Mate (a 6″ phone) to market soon, and we’ve previously told you about the Asus FonePad, a behemoth 7″ device.

If you like the idea of holding such a giant device against your head, then the Asus Fonepad is the way to go. While a local release date isn’t yet known, it seems you can snag one today from eBay’s Daily Deals.

However, there’s a little bit of a catch. Asus announced the launch pricing would be around $250USD, with corresponding pricing around the world (well, at least in those markets where the Fonepad will launch). eBay Daily Deals’ offering is a bit higher than this, at $369 USD.

This seems a bit expensive, but it may be a good option for those in markets (such as ours) where local availability is an unknown. If you want one, best go investigate the eBay site as the deal only lasts for today.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
