ASUS PadFone Gets Official – Full Spec List Below

Steven Blum

The moment has finally arrived: ASUS just now formally announced the PadFone to a packed press conference at Mobile World Congress 2012. The PadFone is the first combination smartphone / tablet ever to hit shelves and is perhaps one of the most versatile devices ever. As you no doubt know by now, the PadFone is two devices in one: a high-end 4.3-inch smartphone with ICS and Snapdragon's dual-core S4-chip and and an accompanying 10.1-inch tablet that eats phones for breakfast. Yum!

 Here are the official specs for the phone:

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display
  • Snapdragon's new dual-core S4 chip, an Adreno 225 GPU
  • Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and f/2.2, autofocusing lens. (The front camera records at VGA resolution.)
  • 16 to 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD)
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • HDMI
  • GPS, A-GPS, a gyroscope,
  • 1,520mAh battery and a compass.
  • Connectivity options include WCDMA (900, 2100 MHz), EDGE / GPRS / GSM (850, 1800 and 1900 MHz) and HSPA+, with theoretical download speeds topping out at 42Mbps

And the tablet is 10.1" with an optional detachable keyboard, making this the most damn versatile product I've ever heard of. Seriously, folks, can you imagine a device more wondrously adaptable? And THE best part, in my opinion, is that this product is going to open the tablet market to a HUGE range of people. By effectively buying just ONE device, consumers will be able to have a smartphone AND a tablet, which will definitely cut down on costs. Here's video of the tabletphone in action:

    OK...forget everything I just said. The phone looks great in the picture, but horrible in the video :-(

  • Eric McBride Feb 27, 2012 Link

    Forget the tablet...the phone looks AWESOME! I see from the screen that there's finally a phone version of the Asus weather widget as well! I hope there's a possibility of getting the phone seperately!

    Good question- Christopher. It comes with a stylus that also acts as a receiver!

    yeah, but what happens when I have to make a call while working on my tab? I guess I have a BT-headset available... I kind of like having them seperate.. We'll see (scepticisim).

  • Steven Blum Feb 27, 2012 Link

    Yeah, and I didn't even mention the fact that the keyboard has a battery which can power the tablet which can power the phone, so forget about drained batteries if you're carrying the three together. tablet - phone - laptop integration is the future!
