Asus Padfone review: Hands-on

 

The Asus Padfone is an unusual hybrid device that comprises a smartphone and a tablet running from one SIM card. Genius or madness? We went hands-on...

The concept of a smartphone that transforms into a tablet is certainly an interesting one, although whether this particular innovation catches on remains to be seen.

Asus Padfone review

 

Asus' PadFone doesn't do things by halves – it's a smartphone that slots seamlessly into a tablet dock. But does it work?

Decent as both phone and tablet ; Easy to dock with station ; Stylus headset is odd but useful

Station is bulky ; Doesn't feel quite finished

A promising idea – iron out the kinks (and that bump) and the PadFone could be a winner

Asus Padfone review

 

You can never accuse Asus of being boring. In a market filled with "me too" products that lack imagination, the Asus Padfone, an Android phone that docks into a tablet shell, is one of the most interesting concepts we've ever seen. Disappointingly, at...

Thre Asus Padfone is a nice idea and one that in time could work, but right now there are just too many things that do not operatate smoothly enough for it to be considered a success. ASUS clearly hasn't found an efficient way to combine both...

First Look: We go hands-on with the elusive hybrid phonelet. Moblet. Tabular PC. Padfone.

One mobile contract ; Well built

Utilitarian design

There is no word on pricing yet but the company did confirm a 2012 launch date.

Is it a phone, is it a tablet? Actually, it's both - and one's hiding inside the other. Namely a mobile that slotted into a tablet's shell to provide the guts. Now there's a sequel on the way, and it looks like it'll hit Europe, whereas its predecessor...

ASUS Padfone

 

The ASUS Padfone is unlike anything we've seen before, offering-up a smartphone and tablet combo for those who want the best of both worlds.

The aptly-named Padfone arrives in the form of a 4.3-inch smartphone and a 10.1-inch touchsreen dock - which transforms into a tablet once attached to the handset. The Galaxy Tab-style 'tablet' has no processing power of its own in fact, although it...

Mixed double. An Android smartphone and tablet in one - will that work? Asus is the first manufacturer to release a combined solution, dubbed PadFone, which is to kill both birds with one stone on the market. We also ask ourselves what this mixed...

Asus PadFone Review - Tech2

 

The Asus PadFone gives you the full functionality of an Android smartphone as well as the ability to use it as a tablet and notebook, depending on where you're using the device.

The Asus PadFone retails for Rs. 65,000 and as part of the package, you get the phone, the station, the keyboard and the stylus headset. This makes it the most expensive Android smartphone in India. But is it worth it? Well, not really and here’s why....
