Asus teases the Padfone with a "Divided we stand, together we rock" Matroska dolls video

Asus teases the Padfone with a
Asus is expected to release a redesigned Padfone at MWC in a few days, differing from its original intentions with the phone/tablet combo. The Padfone is a concept where you house a handset inside a screen shell to make it a tablet, then dock it into a physical keyboard to make it a computer, thus eventually eliminating the need for three separate devices.

Of course, it will only be as good as the sum of its parts, so Asus has allegedly gone with the TF201 dock from the Transformer Prime this time for the Padfone. 

Asus has now started ramping up the excitement about its all-in-one modular Padfone by outing a video called "Divided we stand, together we rock" (clever), and also claiming that "1+1+1=Endless possibilities". Watch the teaser below, it's based on Matroska dolls, and is pretty creative.

"1+1+1", now that really sounds interesting.

I Love everything about his device........ minus the name. Go with something like the ASUS Combine, or something that means the all go together, not just smushing the two words together. All in all though I would get this thing if it pops up on verizon regardless of name.

I am so super excited for a phone which goes to a tablet which can also be a laptop. That sounds like where the future is headed to me.

This is so awesome. Words cant describe how glad i am that asus is stepping up and taking this business risk. I really hope it pays off. I know that i will be seriously considering this if the resolution is high enough on the tablet.
