Asus has donned its best suit and popped along to Milan Design Week 2012 to reveal the pricing for a host of new goodies.
European prices – and Italian release dates – for the Asus PadFone, Transformer Pad Infinity 700 and Transformer Pad 300 have all been confirmed.
You might remember the Asus PadFone price was previously rumoured at £699.98, courtesy of an online retailer. Well, turns out it wasn’t far off. Sort of. If you include the keyboard dock.
The Asus PadFone will hit Italy at the end of May, priced €699. That’s £575ish to us. The keyboard dock is tipped to come in at €149, which would bring the total to just under £700.
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700, meanwhile, will arrive on June 10, at €600 for the 64GB Wi-Fi version. That’s £490+ to you and me.
Finally, the Asus Transformer Pad 300 is the cheapest of the bunch, at €400 (£327) for the Wi-Fi only model, or €500 (£410) if you fancy 3G for data on the move. It’s expected mid-May.
What do we think? Does the Asus PadFone - smartphone and tablet shell - stand a chance at £550-600? Fancy it?
