Asus Padfone - Best of all three worlds!

No doubt everyone wants a phone and a tablet and some people have both.  Well what if those two devices were the same.  Asus has created the most amazing device ever, the Asus Padfone.  A 4.3 inch smartphone that fits perfectly into a 10.1 inch tablet.  This type of technology has many benefits, such as battery life.  The phone itself already has a pretty good battery life, but since all the major components needed for a functioning tablet are in the phone Asus put a giant battery in the tablet so when you plug the phone into the tablet the battery can last, like forever.  And don't worry, switching between the two screen sizes is pretty much flawless.  Also, having a two in one device like this can actually save you money.  Instead of having to buy two 3G data plans, one for your phone and one for your tablet, you only need one for both devices.

(Warning, this part gets nerdy)

The processor is a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-Core (which is fast) however it does not support 4G LTE.  It does however support HSPA+ which is like 3G+. On the phone there is a 8 megapixel rear facing camera (same one on the current iPhone) and a .3 megapixel front facing camera.  When you plug the phone into the tablet dock, the front facing camera gets upgraded to a 1.3 megapixel camera, which is only slightly better.  The tablet adds a micro hdmi port to the device.  And of course the new phone will have the latest version of Android, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

(Nerdiness over)

Not only is the Padfone very practical, but it is also a very sleek, and eye-appealing device.  I would feel proud to hold a phone or tablet that looked and felt like that.  A 4.3 inch screen is really the best screen size nowadays and the Padfone boasts a very beautiful one.  There are two major accessories that you can get for your Padfone.  One of them is a Padfone Station Dock.  This dock adds a keyboard to the tablet, thus making one device a phone, tablet and netbook!  The Padfone Dock Station also has a big battery in it that adds to the battery life of the device. The second major accessory is the Stylus Headset.  The name is pretty self-explanatory... What this accessory does is allows you to answer calls in tablet mode by using a stylus.  The stylus works on capacitive screens, so it would be a cool thing to have for any phone.

With the Padfone you get an epic cell phone experience.  With the Padfone Dock you get an awesome tablet experience. With the Padfone Dock Station you get a great netbook experience.  When you have all three, then you truly get the best of all three worlds.
