Asus PadFone: After Taiwan, Where Next?

I am a bit late to show you the unique Android-based product from ASUS — the PadFone. Available in Taiwan since April 20, 2012, ASUS PadFone is a 4.3″ smartphone featuring a Super AMOLED qHD display. But the most selling point is the unique design which combines the function of a phone, a pad, as well as a notebook. Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core 1.5GHz processor, ASUS PadFone is able to transform into a 10.1 tablet or even further into an ultraportable computing device, thank to the PadFone Station and the optional keyboard dock. And the PadFone Stylus Headset can transform into a headset for picking up calls easily (see video below).

Featuring an ultra-sharp 8-megapixel digital camera with Fuji image processor, F/2.2 aperture, and a 5-element lens, the PadFone is also a good companion for capturing any moments you want while your D-SLR camera is not with you. Other key specifications of ASUS PadFone include: Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich); 1 GB LPDDR2 RAM; 16GB/32GB/64GBGB eMMc Flash; Micro-SD card slot; WCDMA HSPA+ UL:5.76 Mbps/DL:21 Mbps; Qualcomm GPS (AGPS supported); and 3.5mm Audio slot.

Right now, the transforming ASUS PadFone smartphone is available in Taiwan, with Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany and more European countries to follow shortly. Are you feeling lucky? Find the PadFone at
