Er, didn’t Asus already announce the PadFone mini? Yep, a quick look back through ye olde news archives shows it was unveiled in Taiwan in early December.

But wait; as if Asus’ outrageous portfolio of products wasn’t confusing enough already, this new Asus PadFone mini for the west is ever so slightly different. Oh good lawd.

Hey guys. Good news if you’re currently fretting over the lack (ahem) of Asus PadFone devices, as the Taiwanese manufacturer is poised to add to the family of hybrid freak shows.

Prepare a space in your hearts for something called the Asus PadFone Mini, set to launch next Wednesday.

It was just yesterday that I scribbled about the new Asus PadFone Infinity, but this is all part of Martin’s “secret plan to have you do one Asus story a day, progressively making them more and more confusing until your brain implodes”.

Ladies and gentlemen, as if all that stuff at IFA 2013 wasn’t enough (this, this and this), brace yourselves for the standalone MeMO Fone HD 5 smartphone and a smaller version of the PadFone setup. Cripes.

New Asus PadFone Infinity is slightly better than the old one

In the past 18 months, we’ve had the original Asus PadFone, the PadFone 2, the PadFone Infinity, and now the new PadFone Infinity.

With the third guy making its debut at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, you’d be right to question the need for a refresh. The new beast is, well, marginally better.

The Asus PadFone smartphone/tablet hybrid is the joke that just keeps on giving. First we laughed at the original Asus PadFone, raised our eyebrows when they followed up with the PadFone 2, and now we’re well and truly astounded to meet the third entry in the series.

I speak of the Asus PadFone Infinity, and – as you might expect – it grabs the baton from the PadFone 2 and ups the specs in almost every way.

You all know the Asus PadFone, right? The thing with the smartphone component and the tablet shell that’s powered by said smartphone when the pair are docked together?

Well, an Asus bigwig reckons it might be a good idea to bring the PadFone concept to Windows 8. If you say so, dude.

Asus Padfone 2 renders leak ahead of official launch

The original Asus Padfone took so long to hit shelves, and did such a great job of slinking into the shadows, that many of you were surprised to hear that a successor was confirmed. Was the original even released? It was indeed.

The official Asus Padfone 2 launch is scheduled for tomorrow, October 16, and in the meantime a selection of purportedly official renders has leaked.

Asus Padfone 2 specs leaked ahead of October unveiling?

Asus Padfone 2 specs leaked ahead of October unveiling?

The original Asus Padfone is currently going for £689.99, with the keyboard dock, over at Expansys. Bargain (says the guy who spent £700 on an iPhone 5). I wonder if anyone in the country bought one.

In any case, Asus has told us to leave October 16 free for the Padfone 2 launch, and – surprise, surprise – the specs have now been leaked in advance. Well, supposedly.

We thought we were pretty much done with all these product launches (it’s been a crazy few weeks), and were reluctantly about to settle into pre-CES hibernation.

However, Taiwanese manufacturer Asus still has a cheeky treat up its sleeve. It’s holding a launch party – two parties, in fact – for the Asus Padfone 2 on October 16. Boom!
