pixel density of 256ppi. We know that the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm snapdragon S4 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 225 GPU running the graphics side of things. 1GB of RAM is onboard. On back you will find an 8MP camera with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture with videocam functionality. In front, the unit has a VGA front-facing shooter. There is 16GB of storage that can be expanded using the microSD slot. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box.
The Asus Padfone also comes with the Padfone Station. This tablet shell allows you to slip your phone into the dock and turn the Station into an Android 4.0 tablet. The Station comes with a 6,600mAh battery that also charges your phone at the same time it powers the Station. There is also a 3.5mm headset jack, mini USB port and a micro HDMI slot. And in case you are worried about using the phone's antenna to grab signals for your tablet, the Station has antennas for phone calls and for GPS. What the $859.50 doesn't buy is the Tablet Dock which adds a physical QWERTY keyboard to your Padfone Station, transforming it from a tablet to a laptop type device.
If you're the type that needs a smartphone, tablet and laptop, the ASUS Padfone offers you all three, driven by just one smartphone. If you're interested in ordering the device, click on the sourcelink. It seems like a great deal. After all, if you bought a Android 4.0 smartphone, tablet and a laptop, wouldn't you pay well over $859.50 for all three?

Wow this is a brilliant setup/system that should be very successful. All in one phone/tablet/laptop with great battery life. Keen to know if in car navigation has voice guidance? Can Negri Electronics ship it to Australia? What are the specifications for the International version?

I wouldn't say "Expensive" as the phone alone would cost $500-700 at the least now add the tab- to expect an overall price of. $1000. So this package, at $850 is really nothing because some phones you purchase at that price and you only get a damn charger, disc, earpiece only. Now imagine what you get with the PadFone- a lot!

The PadFone nullifies the incoming call problem a bit because you can answer using the nifty bluetooth stylus. I'm in the same boat as you though, sometimes I'll be watching a movie on my laptop, browsing the internet on my tablet, and texting on my phone at the same time. It's nice to have the variety.
