Asus Padfone

 

First Look: We go hands-on with the elusive hybrid phonelet. Moblet. Tabular PC. Padfone.

One mobile contract ; Well built

Utilitarian design

There is no word on pricing yet but the company did confirm a 2012 launch date.

Asus Padfone review: Hands-on

 

The Asus Padfone is an unusual hybrid device that comprises a smartphone and a tablet running from one SIM card. Genius or madness? We went hands-on...

The concept of a smartphone that transforms into a tablet is certainly an interesting one, although whether this particular innovation catches on remains to be seen.

Asus Padfone review

 

Asus' PadFone doesn't do things by halves – it's a smartphone that slots seamlessly into a tablet dock. But does it work?

Decent as both phone and tablet ; Easy to dock with station ; Stylus headset is odd but useful

Station is bulky ; Doesn't feel quite finished

A promising idea – iron out the kinks (and that bump) and the PadFone could be a winner

Asus Padfone review

 

You can never accuse Asus of being boring. In a market filled with "me too" products that lack imagination, the Asus Padfone, an Android phone that docks into a tablet shell, is one of the most interesting concepts we've ever seen. Disappointingly, at...

Thre Asus Padfone is a nice idea and one that in time could work, but right now there are just too many things that do not operatate smoothly enough for it to be considered a success. ASUS clearly hasn't found an efficient way to combine both...

Asus PadFone

 

Is it a phone, is it a tablet? Actually, it's both - and one's hiding inside the other. Namely a mobile that slotted into a tablet's shell to provide the guts. Now there's a sequel on the way, and it looks like it'll hit Europe, whereas its predecessor...

ASUS Padfone

 

The ASUS Padfone is unlike anything we've seen before, offering-up a smartphone and tablet combo for those who want the best of both worlds.

The aptly-named Padfone arrives in the form of a 4.3-inch smartphone and a 10.1-inch touchsreen dock - which transforms into a tablet once attached to the handset. The Galaxy Tab-style 'tablet' has no processing power of its own in fact, although it...

ASUS Padfone review: A nice idea that's poorly executed

Good performance in phone mode ; Padfone Station charges Padfone ; Included stylus headset & case

Tablet is too chunky and heavy ; User experience feels unfinished ; Average screen on both devices

The ASUS Padfone, an Android phone that docks into a tablet shell, is one of the most interesting mobility products we've ever seen. Unfortunately using the Padfone on a daily basis simply feels like an unfinished product in desperate need of both a...

ASUS PadFone review

 

It's been a long ride for the PadFone. ASUS' last smartphone was the Android 2.1-powered A10 from two years ago, then five months later the company ended

Inventive design ; Superb battery life ; Good value for three form factors ; Preloaded with many handy apps

Heavy and chunky ; Dynamic Switching not widely compatible

The ASUS PadFone is a remarkable piece of work and its unique transformation will catch people's attention. It just needs a diet and some software fixes.

The new Asus PadFone isn't available in the US, but with its Snapdragon 800 processor and impressive build quality, we're scratching our heads as to why.
