Asus Padfone MWC 2012 in February, Tegra 3
Back in May of this year, the Asus Padfone, a smartphone come tablet device was first reported by multiple sources. We say a two-way device, as the phone can actually fit into a tablet attachment giving you, the user the best of both worlds!
Although the new Padfone may not have received a great deal of media attention, this according to Sharif Sakr over at Engadget is set to change, with a launch set at the yearly Mobile World Congress in February 2012. It is then hoped to officially release thereafter. So what do we know about the new Asus?
With details still appearing a little sparse, it is reported to enjoy a 4.3-inch display, the new Padfone will come powered with a possible Tegra 3 quad-core processor and attachment converting the smartphone into a tablet device, therefore upping the display size to that of 10.1-inches. Alongside this, the Padfone is rumored to run on Android’s new 4.0 OS as oppose to Gingerbread 2.3.5 that was first thought.
As with many new devices set to launch at either the MWC or even the CES a month before in January, a price is yet to be confirmed.
