Back at MWC when ASUS paraded the PadFone again, it was announced that the device would start shipping in April. Keeping true to their word, it would appear that the PadFone will be available for pre-orders in Taiwan starting tomorrow. Based on the prices, residents in Taiwan can expect to fork out NT$17,990 (~$610) for the phone itself, NT$24,980 (~$850) for the tablet set including the headset and stylus, and a whopping NT$28,901 (~$980) for everything including the keyboard accessories and what not. To help attract early adopters, ASUS is reportedly throwing in a free battery for those who pre-order the device. No word on when it will begin its rollout stateside or internationally, but it should be noted that the prices we mentioned above is based on the price ASUS is asking for the PadFone in Taiwan, which when converted to USD is pretty darn expensive. Hopefully we will see revised prices when the device makes its way into the US. So, who’s looking forward to the PadFone?
