Asus PadFone official demo video released
Asus has released an official demo video of what its PadFone smartphone can do
Asus has released an official demo video for its PadFone.
In the demo, Asus runs through some of the benefits of the device, as you would expect from official marketing material.
You get Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich running on a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display. There's also a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5GHz processor to keep things running smoothly and an 8-megapixel camera for all your photography needs.
Perhaps its coolest feature is the stylus, which doubles up as a headset, saving you from disconnecting your phone from the PadFone Station if you get a phone call. It looks a bit odd talking to a pen but no more odd than when you see people talking with a hands-free device.
Asus mentions a few other interesting facts in the video such as a 16 hour battery life for the smartphone, which becomes 63 hours when plugged into the PadFone Station and 102 hours with the Station Dock Keyboard plugged in, too.
We're not entirely sure how much the whole shebang will set you back, but considering you only need one SIM-card to run what is a tablet, smartphone and laptop all in one, it could actually save you some pennies versus having two SIM-cards in, say, an iPhone and iPad.
The Asus PadFone was pencilled in for release in April 2012 but that's obviously not happened, with blame put upon shortages of its Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
Hopefully we'll hear more from Asus very soon.
