ASUS teases 'miracle' device, ‘Pad and Phone’ come together: will we see a new PadFone?
Asus is teasing something big for MWC: a ‘metallic miracle’ of a device made with ‘ultimate craftsmanship’ and judging by the strong video hint below, we could well see the new PadFone.

“Join us on February 25, when Pad and Phone come together,” Asus posted on its official webpage.

The teaser video is captivating showing Barcelona’s beautiful Sagrada Familia invaded by aliens. It doesn’t make much sense, but Asus will release another teaser tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

What would you like to see from Asus? And what would the ideal third-generation Padfone look like? Sound off in the comments below.

It would be nice if asus broke away from using mostly if not only tegra processors. Not sure if there is an asus device without a tegra but itmwould be nice if they used a exenos octo or a new snapdragon. Tegra are not that bad its just there not as good

It's still a bit early, but I'd love to see this running Ubuntu (as suggested by a reader yesterday)

This would be great but we won't see any Ubuntu phones in 2013 right? So I feel like this year's MWC would be a bit to early for that announcement.

Man, it´s not aliens or anything like that. The "Sagrada Familia" it´s an unfinished work. The part that ASUS is teasing with is the last and final part of the project that is still to be built (from Gaudí original plan)

So the tease is about "creating the ultimate form" of a great project.
