This past few weeks,I’ve been working hard to create cool content for you to enjoy. Today Asus announced their new product, Padfone 2, Android smartphone and tablet hybrid device. The phone can slot in to a tablet dock to deliver a full-blown tablet experience.
Asus will launch the Padfone 2 in Europe and Asia in December, the device will be launch in Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore, Asus have also said they will announce further countries at a later date.
In its release, ASUS emphasizes the PadFone combo’s battery first and foremost among its otherwise amped up specs. The PadFone 2 carries a 2140mAh pack, while the tablet component offers an impressive 5,000mAh that should keep things running for quite a while, though its capacity is a tiny bit smaller than the original PadFone’s whopping 6,600mAh, probably because the tablet’s body has been slimmed significantly to 649g.
Here’s I summarized the PadFone 2′s other specs:
- Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor at 1.5GHz
- 2GB RAM
- 4.7″ HD Super IPS+ display at 1280×720 (that’s 312 ppi) for the phone
- 10.1″ IPS display at 1280×800 for the tablet station
- 13 MP “high-performance” camera capable of 6 shots per second
- Free 50GB ASUS WebStorage space for two years
- Android 4.0.4 (which ASUS explains will be “upgradeable to Jelly Bean shortly”)
Overall, the PadFone 2 looks like a decently-spec’ed phone, and the tablet station could prove to be handy for those that want just one device experience.
