ASUS PadFone 3-in-1 device to finally be released in April
It has been a while since ASUS unveiled the its tablet/phone hybrid PadFone. But at Mobile World Congress, the manufacturer has finally put an end to the waiting, officially announcing almighty ASUS PadFone will be released come April.
Expectations have changed over time, and this device is not as powerful as we used to see it, anymore. But it offers some great functionality, combining the convenience of three form-factors in a single device. As a standalone device, the phone is a regular 4.3-inch smartphone. Its specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display and Android 4.0 for your Ice Cream Sandwich fix.
What makes this device special, though, is that it functions as multiple devices. Android 4.0 has probably made this simpler to accomplish, as the platform united the tablet and smartphone ecosystems. The ASUS PadFone is able to be docked into a 10.1-inch tablet dock (which adds 5 times the battery life) and  transforms it into a full tablet.
This is all old news, but ASUS has added an extra form-factor we only recently heard of. There is a third piece to the equation, which is a keyboard dock that locks into the tablet similar to the Transformer series. So we have a phone, a tablet and a netbook, all united by a single device.
If that isn’t enough, there is also a stylus headset available. This device can be used as a stylus and easily transformed into a bluetooth headset for answering and making calls.
This should be the ultimate Transformer, right? Everything just becomes something else. Let’s wait for April to hear more details about pricing and availability, and hope that nothing delays its release this time. Take a look at some good images from our friends at The Verge, and let us know what you think. Are any of you interested in this mega-hybrid device?
