After the pretty good sales of the Eee pad transformer, ASUS is back with another innovative product, well not yet, but it is a product-to-be. It has been announced at the computex today. It is called the PadFone.
It’s a simple innovative concept that takes advantage of the hardware’s interfacing capabilities. The 4.3 inch smartphone is docked into the 10.1′ tablet like device on the back like the picture shown above. Basically , you get two form factors in one. Much like the Motorola tablet dock ,but without keyboard. Overall the 10.1 ” device is merely a touchscreen display with battery and extended ports. Pitched to run Ice cream sandwich which aims to unify both the smartphone and tablet UI in Android. ASUS has currently shown off the mockups alone, It will probably launch after Google officially announces Ice cream Sandwich.
Hope atleast this doesn’t get supply issues like how the Transformer got. So, are you interested in saving up for a device like this ?
