Asus PadFone 2 unleashed: All the details!
Those leaked images of the Asus PadFone 2 we saw yesterday were spot on the mark: right on time, the company’s outed its new tablet-smartphone tag team. It’s bigger, better, and poised to put your iPad right out of business. Read on for all the details on it.
Asus hasn’t changed the concept behind last year’s PadFone too much: in short, the Asus PadFone 2 is still an Android smartphone that powers a tablet shell when slotted inside. This time though, it’s packing next-gen specs.
The Asus PadFone 2 phone itself packs a 4.7-inch HD display and a massive 13 megapixel camera, much like the Sony Xperia T, plus a hefty 2GB of memory for multi-tasking and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. There’s even 4G connectivity onboard too, though we’re not sure if it’ll work on UK networks like EE’s just yet.
The Asus PadFone 2 phone then slots into the 10.1-inch tablet shell – no tricky trap door antics this time – which also packs its own battery so you can get a huge run time out of both. Both run Android 4.0, but Asus says a 4.1 “Jelly Bean” upgrade is on the way, and the company has been prompt with these updates before.
Asus isn’t talking pricing for the PadFone 2 just yet unfortunately, but says it’ll be out in Europe before the end of the year. Will this be the only Christmas present under your tree? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments below.
