ASUS Padfone now available in the States via Negri Electronics for $859.50
The Asus Padfone also comes with the Padfone Station. This tablet shell allows you to slip your phone into the dock and turn the Station into an Android 4.0 tablet. The Station comes with a 6,600mAh battery that also charges your phone at the same time it powers the Station. There is also a 3.5mm headset jack, mini USB port and a micro HDMI slot. And in case you are worried about using the phone's antenna to grab signals for your tablet, the Station has antennas for phone calls and for GPS. What the $859.50 doesn't buy is the Tablet Dock which adds a physical QWERTY keyboard to your Padfone Station, transforming it from a tablet to a laptop type device.
If you're the type that needs a smartphone, tablet and laptop, the ASUS Padfone offers you all three, driven by just one smartphone. If you're interested in ordering the device, click on the sourcelink. It seems like a great deal. After all, if you bought a Android 4.0 smartphone, tablet and a laptop, wouldn't you pay well over $859.50 for all three?

Still cheaper than buying a top end smartphone and tablet

I wish a US carrier would bring this with LTE I'd buy it hell

I wouldn't say "Expensive" as the phone alone would cost $500-700 at the least now add the tab- to expect an overall price of. $1000. So this package, at $850 is really nothing because some phones you purchase at that price and you only get a damn charger, disc, earpiece only. Now imagine what you get with the PadFone- a lot!

a laggy + redundant device

Lol you really must not have a life or be just a sad guy if you have the time to troll on every Single android article

That is expensive but considering the fact that you buy a phone and a tablet this is not a bad buy but i doubt that it will be found in many markets.

i have a tablet and a phone. but there are plenty of times i am using my phone for one thing and tab for others at same time
16. rob5150 (Posts: 143; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
how am i doing it wrong?
if im watching a movie on netflix or a show on hulu.
or youtube. when you back out of app to do text or a phone call comes in your show stops.
i think that it is a novel idea, and has its uses.

The PadFone nullifies the incoming call problem a bit because you can answer using the nifty bluetooth stylus. I'm in the same boat as you though, sometimes I'll be watching a movie on my laptop, browsing the internet on my tablet, and texting on my phone at the same time. It's nice to have the variety.
