When it comes to getting products on the shelves after revealing them, Asus has been absolutely freakin’ terrible of late. Remember the Asus Eee Pad MeMo, first revealed at CES 2011? Apple they ain’t.
Part of the problem is that Asus seems to keep changing its mind, endlessly tweaking devices and leaving consumers wondering what the furg is going on. Unsurprisingly, the imminent Asus PadFone – first revealed back in May – is thought to have gone under the knife too.
Admittedly those first few paragraphs were a little melodramatic, probably because I haven’t had my morning coffee yet. Apologies.
Firstly, the Asus PadFone is expected to be a tad thinner. We hope you’re not compromising on battery life there, Asus.
Also, as the Asus PadFone will rock Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), it’s suggested that the smartphone-tablet hybrid will ditch all physical buttons.
As for the processor, the jury are still furiously debating whether it’s an Nvidia Tegra 3 or Snapdragon S4 (MSM8960).
The Asus PadFone will be on display at Mobile World Congress in a few weeks, and is expected to go on sale in September 2027.
