Asus Padfone! It's a Phone/Tablet/Ultrabook all in one!
Asus just announced the Padfone at MWC! The specs are a little on the low side or about as low as you can call a dual core chipset.
Hands on by Android Police
Here's the full list of specs for the phone half of ASUS' Padfone:
HSPA+ 21/5.76Mbps (42Mbps Optional)
Android 4.0 (ICS)
Snapdragon S4 (dual-core Krait) with Adreno 225 GPU
1GB LPDDR2 RAM + 16 - 64GB eMMC NAND
802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB 2.0
4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960 x 540)
Rear Camera: 8MP F2.2, AF with LED Flash
Front Camera: VGA
Motion sensor, proximity light sensor, gyro sensor, e-compass
microSD expansion slot (SDHC/SDXC up to 32GB)
Dimensions: 128mm x 65.4mm x 9.2mm
When docked in the tablet, the Padfone gains the following new specs:
Micro USB + Micro HDMI
10.1-inch 1280 x 800 display with Capacative Touch
Rear Camera: 8MP (via Padfone rear camera)
Front Camera: 1.3MP (1280 x 800)
Vibration sensor, 2 color LED indicators for battery status
2-in-1 audio jack, 40-pin connector
Dimensions: 273mm x 176.9mm x 13.65mm (h-average)
And the really bit that I like? It comes with a stylus that doubles as a headset when the phone is docked with the tablet! Watch the video and you'll see it at the 1:35 mark. Unfortunately, the pen does not appear to be of the N-trig or S-Pen variety, looks like a regular capacitive stylus judging from that fat tip.
Only through serving can one become worthy of being served
