Ah the infamous Asus PadFone, shown off last year to tease us with its dual functionality, the company has finally introduced the device at the MWC 2012. The phone part of this hybrid has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, Snapdragon’s new dual-core S4 chip, an Adreno 225 GPU, Ice Cream Sandwich and an 8-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and f/2.2, with autofocus.
The phone has 16-64 Gb capacity options plus MicroSD (32 GB) , Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, GPS, A-GPS, a gyroscope, 1,520mAh battery and a compass. The phone has a thin profile with only 9.2mm thickness.
But the best feature of the PadFone is its ability to slide into a tablet housing ( a 10 inch tablet housing), and not only operate as a full fledged tablet but also charge in there. The Tablet part of the PadFone will have its own standalone battery pack and a much higher resolution, did we mention a S-Pen esque stylus will also be included.
You can also optionally opt in for a Keyboard dock. The PadFone will start shipping in April 2012 (finally!) , no information on pricing.
