ASUS Padfone 2 shown off on video

Today the folks at Bloomberg were lucky enough to get what appears to be the first video and hands-on with the new ASUS Padfone 2 smartphone and tablet convertible. The device hasn't leaked yet much, but the official announcement is set for October 16th. Today however we're seeing this newer device with a 4.7-inch display, 13 megapixel camera, and the new design for docking right into the tablet.

We've heard reports that ASUS is gearing up to release a follow up to the original PadFone, and today it might have leaked in some AnTuTu benchmarks.

ASUS Padfone gets European date and pricing

Oh Padfone, how long we've waited for you. But those of you in Europe won't have to wait too much longer. After ASUS announced that the much-anticipated smartphone/tablet/netbook would be selling in Taiwan this month, Notebook Italia reports that Italy (and presumably other European territories) will get the Padfone in late May. They also spoke to the Euro price of the device: €699 for the phone and tablet combo. The keyboard dock, similar to the docks for the Transformer tablets, will be an additional €149.

ASUS Padfone pre-orders start in Taiwan, going on sale April 20th

If there's one device that's caught the imaginations of those looking for a real shift in the mobile space, it's the ASUS Padfone. This docking ICS phone/tablet/netbook combo has wowed onlookers since the concept was introduced last summer. ASUS showed off a production device at Mobile World Congress and vowed to ship in April, and it looks like they're sticking to that for their home territory of Taiwan. Residents can begin placing pre-orders for the Ice Cream Sandwich phone tomorrow, and it's set to ship on April 20th.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 27, 2012

Since we're live at MWC, you've undoubtedly noticed the massive amount of hands-on articles we've managed to get up today. So instead of a wrap-up, this will consist more of a 'hands-on' summary of devices for our second day at MWC. First up, we got to glance at the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. We received a few snapshots with it alongside the original 5.3" Galaxy Note for an easy comparison. Usually you don't see devices ship with Adobe Photoshop, but the Note 10.1 will already include Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas - a few apps that cost $10 each on the Android Market.

ASUS PadFone ‘Expand Your World’ advertisement hits YouTube

Sometimes it's hard to realize a good idea until you've seen it in action. And to be honest, I was a bit skeptical of the 'two devices, one data plan' idea for some time. But the ASUS PadFone seems flawless; well, it does in their advertisement so I guess there's some bias there. Either way, be sure to check out 1:38 in the video clip when they show how the included stylus doubles as a bluetooth headset!

Asus Padfone headed for release in April with headset/stylus: we go hands-on

Easily one of the most-anticipated Android devices over the last year has been the Asus Padfone. First just a concept and eventually a developed product, Asus has finally pulled the wraps off if its shiny new form factor and the hardware that will release in just a couple of months. If you've been following the Padfone, you know it's an Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone that docks to become a full-fledged Android tablet. Asus had two new surprises at its launch event: one, the Padfone will be released in April, and two, they're not done defying conventions: they've added a Galaxy Note-style stylus that doubles as a Bluetooth headset. You read that right.

ASUS releases another teaser video before MWC

Just yesterday, ASUS dropped a 'Teaser video II' that doesn't give much away, except that we should expect "twice the detail" in one of their upcoming products at MWC. With only two days until the actual event, you'd think they would ease up on the teasing and just let us painlessly await their press conference. Alas, that wasn't their plan, and they have just dropped 'Teaser video III'.

Asus teases new hi-resolution Transformer tablet for MWC

We're at t-minus three days until the festivities start in Barcelona, and Asus isn't letting the likes of HTC and LG have all the premature fun. In a new video posted to YouTube, the company teased a high-resolution tablet with an abstract, 17-second commercial before Mobile World Congress. There's no hardware on display (a drawer with colored balls stands in for a Honeycomb/ICS home screen) but the teaser "twice the detail, twice the fun" leaves little room for doubt. Presumably, Asus is talking about a tablet with more than the standard resolution - i.e., more than 1280x800.
