AT&T Asus PadFone X receives its Wi-Fi certification

AT&T announced the Asus PadFone X earlier this month at CES, but failed to say when the new smartphone-tablet hybrid would be available. The carrier’s website is currently listing the PadFone X as "coming soon." But soon is a rather vague term, isn’t it? Still, it looks like the new device is getting closer to being released.

An Asus PadFone X, model number T00D, received its Wi-Fi interoperability certificate yesterday. A recent benchmark test found over at GFXBench seemingly confirms that the T00D is AT&T’s PadFone X. So the carrier could indeed launch it in the near future.

Just like the older PadFone models introduced by Asus, the PadFone X consists of a smartphone and a tablet dock. The smartphone features a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snadpragon 800 MSM-8974 processor. The tablet dock sports a 9-inch 1080p display, and an extra battery. The new PadFone runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and will come with Voice over LTE and HD voice capabilities, thanks to its chipset that has LTE-A support.

AT&T didn’t mention how much the PadFone X would cost. But we imagine it will be one of its most expensive new Android devices. Interested?

That sounds like a good on-contract price

As much as Id like to have this device, Id have to see how much it would cost. This is the type of innovation that might set a trend in the mobile industry like the Galaxy Note did a few years ago
