Asus Padfone 2 appears in video tour
On Tuesday, Asus plans on introducing the Asus Padfone 2 in two locations, Taipei in Taiwan and Milan in Italy. The device takes a smartphone and turns it into a tablet driven by the phone. Add the QWERTY dock and you have a laptop computer. The Asus Padfone 2 is a nice step up, specs wise, from the original model and scored 13,950 on the AnTuTu Benchmark website which was 450 points higher than the Samsung GALAXY Note II.

The 4.7 inch screen has a resolution of 720 x 1280 which gives the handset a pixel density of 312ppi. A quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 is under the hood along with the Adreno 320 GPU. 2GB of RAM puts a smile on multitasking users of the device. The 13MP camera on back captures video in 1080p at 30 fps and the front-facing 1.3MP shooter is great for self-portraits and video chat.

We have a number of pictures and a video for your pleasure. The photographs come from those serial leakers at evleaks while Bloomberg Television India was able to get a video from Asus CEO Jerry Chen. While the first version of the Asus Padfone was a curiosity, it looks like the sequel is a mighty powerful smartphone/tablet/laptop.
