Asus Padfone release date confirmed for April 20th, retailing for $980
The Asus Padfone, the phone that plugs into a tablet chassis, will go up for pre-order tomorrow in Taiwan and hit shelves on April 20th for $980 off contract, according to Engadget’s sources.
The Asus Padfone alone without the tablet will set you back around $610 (NT$17,990), while the whole set including the phone, the tablet and the Bluetooth combination of a headset and stylus, will retail for nearly $850 (NT$24,980).
And if you want the whole mobile experience with the addition of a keyboard dock, it will cost some $980 (NT$28,901).
If you’re among the brave first ones to hit the pre-order button, Asus will award you with an extra battery. In either case, you’d do good to first check out our Asus Padfone hands-on - that won’t cost you a dime.
