Taiwanese technology major ASUS has been making headlines across the world because of its upcoming PadFone. But, due to the shortage of supply of QUALCOMM Snapdragon S4 chips, its release date had been postponed many a times in the past. Recent media reports indicate that the PadFone, which can be converted into a tablet and even a laptop, will be released late May.
The ASUS Padfone is a device that really made people sit up and take notice when it was first displayed publically, and many people have been waiting for this beautiful innovation to hit the market ever since.
The ASUS PadFone is a 4.3-inches smartphone that will likely be running the Ice Cream Sandwich mobile operating system. The most important feature of the PadFone is its docking. The biggest feature of the PadFone, which sets it apart from the competition is, as you guessed, the ability to dock your phone into a tablet form factor to get a large touchscreen and extended battery life. This is similar to the docking concept of the Motorola Atrix 4G, but plays on the more popular tablet form factor.
