The unique Asus PadFone Android device will begin shipping in early April. Unfortunately, precise market launches has not yet been revealed, but Asus will announce “pricing details within a few weeks.” This recent information comes from its Google+ page, but we will have to wait until we hear about specific markets and pricing.
The Asus Padfone is a notable device for a couple of reasons. At MWC 2012, its full spec list was announced and it features Android 4.0, a Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor, 4.3 inch display, 8MP rear facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and a VGA front facing camera. Now, it can be inserted into a tablet shell with a 10.1 inch display called the PadFone Station. However, the Station can connect with a keyboard making it a fully-functional tablet. Whether you desire to browse through the web and videos on a larger display or increase productivity with a standard QWERTY keyboard, the PadFone aims to be the one device.
Again, we will have to wait a couple of weeks before full details are revealed about the launch information and pricing.
