Asus Introduces The PadFone – Tablet & SmartPhone Combination

When I first spotted the PadFone on Twitter this morning, I thought it was a joke. The above video didn’t help. The cringetastic introduction of the PadFone looked like a poor attempt at parodying a Steve Jobs keynote. And the name PadFone didn’t help either.

Jonney Shih, the chairman of Asus, introduced us to their mystery product and promptly demonstrated his amateur magic skills by flamboyantly producing a SmartPhone from a Pad.

9 times out of 10 I believe this to be a joke.

However, this is 100% legit, there are no strings. The PadFone is an Android OS tablet that features a compartment for a SmartPhone.

Yes, it’s a double rainbow!

Here at ASUS we are firm believers behind the practice of design thinking. The Padfone has been specifically created to fulfill a demand for both smartphone and tablet users. It is a first of its kind innovation that allows you to switch seamlessly between pad and phone for a user experience that best-fits your activities, at any time. Internet access from the 3G network connection is shared between the phone and pad, as data storage is streamlined through a single storage pool.

Some of the features include:

  • Enlarge your screen size any time you need to
  • Seamless transition of applications between pad and phone
  • Eliminate data transfer hassle with a single storage pool
  • One SIM card for two devices
  • Use the pad as an extended battery to charge your phone
  • Have a video conferencing experience and easily share with family and friends

Is this an iPhone and iPad all-in-one-combo-killer? I don’t know. I don’t think so. But to be fair to Asus, it is innovation. Whether or not it will work, remains to be see.

    Do you mean amateur? Do y’all have spell check over there?

    After watching Jonney Shih show off his presentation magic skills, I think Jobs better go back to his keynote and try something new next week because Shih was killing it! (sarcasm) The PadFone seems to gimmicky to me. ASUS is just not one of those brands I’d be willing to spend my hard earned money on their products.
