There are tablets, and then there are tablets. The Asus Padfone has been touted by some to be one of the different tablets out there, although the specifications are not exactly groundbreaking when you place it side-by-side with other high end tablets in the market. I would suppose the “difference” has something to do with the form factor, not to mention its chameleon-like capability to be able to work with its Asus Padfone Station, which is a tablet accessory. Just what model of the Asus Padfone will arrive in the US? We are looking at the international (and hence, imported) version that will retail for $859.50 from Negri Electronics.
This basically means it will sell for far higher compared to what a specifically US-bound tablet is going for in the future (if that happens), but do bear in mind that Negri Electronics will be introducing the Asus Padfone Station tablet accessory into the mix as well, making it sound a whole lot more reasonable when you think about it.
Just to recap, the Asus Padfone comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor with the new Adreno 225 GPU, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture, 16GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot.
