This was the phone I wanted the most but got tired of waiting for it to come to T-Mobile so I ordered the N4 instead. I still like what I see with this concept, especially when the videos of the computer monitor docking station were released. Maybe I'll get the Padfone 4, the N4 should last me at least two years before needing to upgrade again. I hope Asus has a lot of success with this phone, I feel they've just scratched the surface with the potential it has. This phone just screams for a dual boot Android/Ubuntu combination that would totally knock the docking station out of the park.

Yep, the combo nexus 4 & nexus 10 is way better and cheaper

it is 349+399=749 and only the phone part of padfone will be $650. so do the math. and for that price you are getting two device that can function at the same time .

I think the current mobile processors are already powerful enough to get the docking phone-tablet / phone-laptop combo working.
Moto's lapdock was too slow when it came out. The OG Padfone still had quite a bit of software work needed on it to really be called a "combo". I hope this time around everything meshes together to really show what great potential this has.
I also like the change in the attaching mechanism from the OG Padfone. Sliding the phone in or out is way better than having to open a latch, putting the phone in and closing it.

Too bad it wasn't released on Networks in the US.

Yes . The original padfone have it , so the sequel should have it too . But the padfone station is quite expensive

no it doesn't have SD card slot (niether the phone nor the station), but it does come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB

Yeah this is the only drawback... but it is confirm to be MHL standard and also the station is USB On The Go compatible

the only thick bezel is on the bottom... the rest is equal or smaller than the SGS3
