Possible Asus PadFone Infinity successor appears in benchmarks
Now we have reasons to believe that a new PadFone device from Asus is to be announced in the coming months. The contraption has been allegedly spotted on AnTuTu, listed as the Asus PadFone Infinity A86 (the current variant bears the A80 model name). Specs include a Snapdragon 800 SoC and 1080p display, with Android 4.2.2 running the show.
What adds more credibility to this rumor is the recent certification of an Asus PadFone Infinity variant. The device has been spotted in Taiwan, with a T004 codename attached to it.
This rumor of a possible Asus PadFone Infinity successor comes right after the company hinted that it might try to enter the US smartphone market with a new smartphone. Also, word on the street has it that a super-slim Asus slate is currently in development. Whether the mysterious PadFone Infinity A86 would be any of these devices remains unclear.

Come to T-Mobile and give me the option to just buy only the phone with an optional desktop docking station and I've finally found the phone to replace my N4 next year. Ever since I saw the docking station in use, I've wanted this because it's so useful to dock a phone to get simple things done than powering up a PC. Asus is onto something here, don't understand why it's taking so long to get this going to full speed.

That's why i LOVE my iMac... Windows pc/laptop takes forever...
Asus really should pick up the pace, in getting this PadFone going to the market... Samsung has already sent something like this to the patent office, with a "T" shape top on the phone part, but surely copied by the king.

You must live under a rock because most new PCs use SSD, if its windows 8 a top of the line SSD will boot in about 6 seconds.

Ha. I love how the hybrid ssd/hdd drive was such a huge invention for them when it had been around for at least a year before Apple "announced it".

Even Windows 7 boots in around 10-15. Fast enough for me.

Now i shall see what Samsung will do about this. Remember they filed for a patent of this concept even when such products are already in the market?
