The core of this 3 part system is an high end Android smartphone. Sporting a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, a Qualcomm dual-core processor, running Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), Bluetooth, a 8-megapixel camera, a second VGA shooter around the front. Inside, Asus put Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 64GB of built-in storage.
The interesting part is the phone fits into the back of a tablet, giving access to a 1280×800 screen with its own battery. Further, this connects to a keyboard, with its own battery as well, that extends the over life of the system even further. Now what is even more geeky is the Bluetooth-enabled Padfone Stylus Headset. I do not see where you are suppose to doc this thing, so may need to put some Velcro on this guy, but still, very inventive.
Check out the video below, pretty cool, although its clear the woman giving the demonstration is still not that smooth with the device yet. I’ll look for a better Vid in a bit.
No details on pricing or when (or if) it will come to the US. I will be watching..
Ok, found the promo vid, which mean it will DEF be released in the US at some point. However, I’m going to include the first link because like ‘most’ promo vids, this on is annoying.
