This Tablet Eats Phones

Authored by: Steven Blum — May 30, 2011

It sounded gimmicky at first, but we've since warmed to the idea of the Asus Padphone: a sleek tablet with a dock that consumes a sleek companion phone. Details are still sketchy at the moment, but somehow the phone and tablet will communicate with each other.

It's a novel product idea and, though we don't even know what version of Android it'll be running yet, we still think this could be big with consumers looking to buy both a new tablet and a new phone.

The tablet will even take advantage of the companion phone's camera with a little peephole inside the hinged camera cover:

We wish we knew more at this point but we'll be sure to pass on new information as it becomes available.

    Interesting. Sync is already a headache with 3 endpoints (cloud, phone, PC) so this could save us another endpoints.

    Honestly, I should have never activated sync on my boot-camp partition. Whenever I boot Windows now my address-book is turned into mush of duplicates and resurrected deletes.
