The ASUS Padfone has finally made its way on to the Taiwanese market and we’ve gotten a hold of the (handset), the PadFone Station (tablet) and the PadFone Station Dock (keyboard). This is an interesting device because the PadFone actually docks into a 10 inch tablet which will charge the handset and the tablet actually docks into a keyboard bringing it inline with the ASUS Transformer line up.
We’re really excited about his product so much so that we’ve actually gone out and signed a 2 year contract to get all 3 pieces, the whole lot set me back 11,900NT ($405) and my monthly contract is $30 with unlimited data. If I just wanted the phone it would have been 4900NT ($165). I’ll be doing some more videos of how I am using this device and what type of user I think should consider taking the plunge.
