Asus PadFone set for official unveiling at Mobile World Congress

Asus PadFone set for official unveiling at Mobile World CongressWe first met the Asus PadFone waaaaay back in May 2011, and the smartphone-tablet hybrid was in attendance at CES in Vegas a few weeks ago.

Now we’re told that the Asus PadFone will finally get an official unveiling – nine months after first popping up – at Mobile World Congress next month. Er, we kinda knew that already, but we like nattering on about it.

The Asus PadFone is comprised of a 4.3in smartphone and a 10.1in tablet shell thingy. Y’see, the tablet can only fully function by shoving the smartphone component inside; essentially you’re magnifying the display.

Other than that, details are thin on the proverbial ground. There’s talk of a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, but some suggest it’ll be a SnapDragon S4 effort. Hmm. As for Gingerbread (Android 2.3) or Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0); that’s anyone’s guess.

In any case, we’ll find out for sure in Barcelona in a few weeks. February 27 is the date to mark in your diary; that’s the day Mobile World Congress officially opens its doors.
