awesome specs and cool design, the only let down for me is the non-expandable storage.

phablet is not a definition for a phone that can dock into a tablet station..

phablet is a cross device between phone and tablet..

Padfone is a phone, not a tablet and not a phablet.
But it can dock into a tablet chassis that will turn it into a tablet..

and that doesn't mean it's a phablet..

I don't think the phone is expensive if the software is done right. The specs are very good.

But I agree that the pad is very expensive, how come the pad is as expensive as N7 even when bundled with the phone, and close to iPad2 when sold alone?

This isn't expensive. It's a little more than S3, but you get a better the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 and 2GB of RAM and a 13MP camera.. A good display(in my opinion) and you can turn it into a TABLET! A good tablet. For only 200-300$(the tablet). How can you say that's expensive ?

Very, for this price I expected ASUS to match its Infinity tablet with 1920x1200 resolution and higher pixel density on the tablet portion (seeing as it makes a huge difference, yes I own a 1280x800 tablet and have used the Infinity, its a grand canyon affair when it comes to quality).

Its disapointing enough to be written off as something I wont be buying.

Everything else looks nice however...

Its really not bad, just not subsidised. I get an unsubsidised phone every other year and its been between 600 and 800, so its just about right I guess.

I can't believe they went with 1280x800 again. For such a premium product, that just makes no sense to me :(

Ill have to see for myself whether or not this 1280x800 is going to bother me, because I really like the HD display on the infinity...

And asus had to go and fsck it up by adding their stupid logo right underneath the soft keys. Way to disrupt the otherwise beautiful design.
