More Asus PadFone hybrid tablet/phone teaser shots emerge
With the Asus Eee Pad Transformer and its innovative dock, the company set somewhat of an expectation that it will be working on making our life with Android tablets more interesting. It is evidently trying not to disappoint us spectators, and we are only hours away from Computex 2011 in Taiwan, where Asus will showcase something with the codename PadFone, possibly a phone/tablet hybrid.

What's so different about it than a Motorola ATRIX 4G with its laptop dock, you would ask? We still don't know with details, but a few more teaser pics leaked that have the phone on top of the tablet thingy this time. It looks like aluminum or at least chrome-like plastic is part of the design decision, but what silicon is inside the phone or the tablet, as well as the screens' size and resolution, remain a mystery.

The phone looks pretty similar to Liquid Metal but it's "flatter" than mt.

I'm looking forward to this as I am sure it will be an excellent value. I love Asus because I have built several computers using their components and I have never been disappointed.

I really do like where Asus is heading with this. Motorolla has obviously influenced Asus with the Atrix lapdock, and I think this has opened the door for some awesome tabs and hybrid netbooks. I wonder how long it will take Apple to start going down the hybrid phone/tab/lapdock path, patent it and then make everyone else pay for the idea that was never theirs in the first place??
