Earlier this month ASUS announced the PadFone X and the PadFone Mini, but as it turns out it looks like AT&T has more devices up their sleeves because over in Taiwan, ASUS has officially launched the ASUS PadFone E, which based on its specs, appears to be a device that sits in between the higher-end PadFone X and the lower-end PadFone Mini, although given its release in Taiwan we’re not sure if ASUS plans on bringing the device over to the US or to other international markets around the world. Its pricing in Taiwan is at around $560 and while it has not been confirmed, it seems that the device could begin making its international rounds in March, although hopefully we will hear an official confirmation from ASUS themselves soon or maybe during MWC 2014.
In terms of hardware, the ASUS PadFone E will pack a 4.7” 720p HD display on the phone device, while the tablet will feature a 10” 1280×800 display instead. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, Adreno 305 graphics, 16GB of onboard storage, 3G/HSPA+ connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GPS, and will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Battery for the phone is at 1,820mAh while the tablet will sport a slightly more beefy 5,000mAh battery.
