We just heard from Asus India that they are launching the kick ass Asus Padfone along with the Transformer Pad TF300T in India next week. The PadFone is a innovative concept from Asus , a phone which can fit inside a tablet and you can use the phone like a tablet. If you wonder will you take calls when the phone is docked inside the tablet , it comes with a interesting bluetooth headset for the same.
Here are the specs of the PadFone
- 4.3-inch (960×540 pixels), Super AMOLED capacitive Multi touch display
- 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 8260A processor
- Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

The launch event is happening in India next week and we should have more details including pricing and availability soon.
But considering the past , I’m almost sure the devices will be crazy expensive in India compared to other markets.
