Asus PadFone Review

0. phoneArena posted on 14 Aug 2012, 07:38

The Asus PadFone is a pretty unique device – it's a combination of a phone and a tablet chassis, powered by that phone. The idea is that you already have huge processing power in your handset, so why need to buy another device with similar specs when you can use the phone's hardware and only get a bigger screen?...

But is it a Pad, or is it a Phone?

Who needs quad-core, I've got the Padfone + Station, and it actually views web video better than my Galaxy S3 (which fails to play flash video from numerous sites :-(

Only my Galaxy Note out performs it... Yeah, i'm a Tablet & Phone freak, and this is the best of all my devices.. (well, maybe not the "best", but my Favorite).

Only problem is that I'm using it here in the U.S., and it doesn't support the 3G or 4G frequencies here.. So all I can get is (worthless) Edge Speeds on T-Mobile (or Any of the carriers).
I'm prayin that Some phone company releases it b4 year end.

p.s.: Re. the Station being bulky... Yeah. but there are 2 solutions that will make you forget that it's bulky at all:
1) Get a Padlette ..... amazing.. makes it so easy to carry and use. or,
2) Get a leather case from Ebay, which fits snugly and lets you access the phone-dock any time. The one with a cutout for camera looks even nicer.

Not only does it make the device look even more impressive -- it makes it a Lot easier to handle and use. Actually makes it look sleek and slimmer.
