02/19/2014, ASUS has an entire lineup of tablet and smartphone hybrids that it calls the PadFone. Just last month two additions were made to the lineup, the PadFone Mini and the PadFone E. Today yet another model has been launched which sticks to the core philosophy of merging together a smartphone and a tablet, while allowing users to separate the two whenever they want. The PadFone Infinity Lite has been launched today, […]
12/16/2013, Asus has an entire lineup of devices perfect for customers who want the best of both worlds, a smartphone and a tablet. The company has already released multiple variants of the PadFone, just recently the budget centric PadFone Mini was officially announced. It appears that Asus might have yet another similar device up its sleeve which it might unveil early next year. A PadFone X has popped up on AnTuTu benchmark, […]
12/10/2013, I don’t know about you, but my experience with ASUS products have not exactly been happy ones. The hinge on my ASUS notebook popped open one fine day without any warning, where the other hinge followed a couple of weeks later – and I was apparently informed by the ASUS service center here that “it happens”, without any explanation as to why it happened. Still, I am quite sure that […]
09/21/2013, Recently rumors were going around that ASUS is gearing up to launch a new smartphone and a tablet. The company itself has confirmed its plans about the MeMOFone HD5 and the PadFone Mini. The MeMOFone HD5 is going to be a smartphone with a 5 inch display and is going to launch early next year. ASUS CEO Jerry Shen has made these confirmations himself. The ASUS PadFone devices are actually […]
09/17/2013, ASUS teased the world with its latest 8-second trailer, which was used to briefly introduce its PadFone Infinity. The teaser video shows the smartphone portion of the PadFone Infinity shooting out from its tablet, and that’s pretty much it. Today, ASUS has finally unveiled its PadFone Infinity and it looks to be a major improvement over the PadFone.
08/09/2013, ASUS released its PadFone and FonePad, which are devices we still get confused as to which device is which based on their names, earlier this year. But it looks like those weren’t the only mobile devices the company had planned to announce this year as the MemoFone HD 5 has been leaked. MemoFone HD 5′s leak was caught by Engadget who obtained a leaked slide that showed the company’s upcoming smartphone […]
07/14/2013, Samsung is suspected to be working on a new PadFone-like device.
02/27/2013, [MWC 2013] In Barcelona, ASUS has landed a big announcement (and product) with the new Padfone smartphone/tablet combo. It’s not that we did not expect this new product, since ASUS launched the whole concept here at a previous Mobile World Congress, but we did not expect this level of craftsmanship which is absolutely stunning: ASUS has simply outdone itself with this ultra high-end design, and a unique concept. The Padfone […]
02/25/2013, [MWC 2013] Along with a 7-inch tablet, ASUS has also just announced the PadFone Infinity, a 5″ LTE smartphone that can dock into a 10″ Tablet companion body, which turns it into a full tablet. ASUS had introduced the concept here at Mobile World Congress, so it’s not surprising that the new model is being launched here. The new device runs on Android 4.2 and uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 600 […]
09/20/2012, When Asus introduced its first Padfone device, it truly looked like a wonder. Padfone essentially packed the functionalities of a smartphone, a tablet and a laptop. You simply needed to hook up a smartphone into two different docks to turn it into either a tablet or a laptop. Now, we are on the verge of a new release for the Padfone line-up. We’ve been hearing about Padfone 2 for a […]
09/10/2012, With so many tech gadgets available today, it often becomes hard to keep track of all the data across all these devices. For your 24/7 work, you need to have a smartphone. A laptop needed for more professional tasks whereas a tablet has to be there to be carried along. Finally, a PC is also a must-have for some heavy-duty work and hard-core gaming. Asus tried to come up with […]
07/24/2012, Personally, I don’t know too many people who own the ASUS Padfone, but if you’re one of them, expect a new over the air update to start rolling out to your device this week. The new update brings your phone/tablet up to Android 4.0.4 (no Jelly Bean yet) in addition to some important changes. The update improves system stability and optimizes operating performance, dynamic display switch performance, power consumption, camera […]
06/11/2012, 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 […]
04/05/2012, 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 […]
