ASUS PadFone Pre-Order Starts Now
When ASUS gave consumers a peek of its very own PadFone, the company said that its release date will fall sometime in April. Perhaps, the company is keeping its promises by finally accepting pre-orders starting today until April 20th.
For those who have been hiding under the rock in the past few months, PadFone is a smartphone that you can dock into a tablet. You can also port this into a keyboard, becoming a handy netbook.
But coolness has a price. The PadFone itself is priced at approximately $610 without the tablet or even the portable keyboard. However, if you want the tablet and the Bluetooth headset slash stylus, the price can go up to $850.
Furthermore, if you desire everything including the keyboard, be readied with $980 in your pocket. ASUS, however, will throw in an extra battery if you do pre-order from the above mentioned dates.
PadFone features include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor and spanning at 4.3 inches Super AMOLED qHD display. It has built-in rear 8 MP camera, as well as a front VGA camera, good enough for taking photos or even video chatting.
Added features include integrated Bluetooth, audio jack and microUSB 2.0 slot. The PaFfone is running on Android 4.0 OS.
