It's not a concept. It's available now internationally, just not in the US. It may never come to the US because carriers are afraid of such a device. They want you to have separate data plans for your phone and tablet.

I think, that I read somewhere that this advertised 102 hours time is on 2g network, on 3G network the time is less than the half of 102 hours..........

Please come to T-Mobile! I have a sensation and a transformer og but I'd rather have a padfone if the price is right.

If this had been ready for the market, and if a carrier had been willing to carry it, it would have been awesome. But I think its too late now. compard to the Galaxy Note HTC One, SGIII, etc the Padfone alone is at best middle of the road, and their are many Transformers and more to come.

Depends really on what you are doing with it. Most of the light duties can be performed by PadFone just as well as with a laptop.

It has Polaris Office pre-installed, which can be used to edit Microsoft Office files. As for Photoshop, it should be able to run Photoshop Touch, although the Play store still thinks it's just a phone and not a tablet too.
