In addition to being used as a smartphone and tablet, the Asus PadFone can also be used as a netbook since a keyboard dock is also available for the device. This means that consumers will have a smartphone, tablet, and netbook all in one device.
The Asus PadFone will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 960 by 540 in smartphone mode and a 10.1-inch multi-touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 by 800 in tablet mode. The upcoming device will also feature a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, and an internal memory of 64GB which is expandable using a microSD memory card.
The smartphone mode of the Asus PadFone features a 1500mAh battery although the tablet mode will give the device a 6547mAh battery.
On the other hand, the Asus Transformer Infinity is considered by some industry watchers as the best tablet offering of Asus. It features a ten-inch full HD multi-touch capacitive screen with a 1920 by 1200 resolution, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor for the 3G / 4G model and quad-core 1.6GHz Tegra 3 processor for the Wi-Fi only model, and an internal storage ranging from 16GB up to 64GB which is expandable through a microSD memory card.
The upcoming release of the Asus PadFone and the Asus Transformer Infinity in July will likely be good news for consumers in Australia even as U.S. and European consumers will have to wait a little bit longer before they will have the opportunity to acquire the two upcoming devices.
