Tablet + SmartPhone = Padfone 2

We've got our hands on the Asus Padfone 2 - Asus' second attempt at a smartphone/tablet pairing.


Update: we've been told the Asus Padfone 2 release date won't be at least until early 2013 in the UK... we're starting to get worried it will never appear on British shores, although it has already been upgraded to Android Jelly Bean in other territories.


In case you don't know, the Padfone is an original Asus concept that brings together a tablet and a phone; the tablet itself is essentially a dummy device which the phone slots into.


There is a battery for extra life inside the tablet, but otherwise all the processing power, memory and more comes from inside the phone.

Tablet + SmartPhone = Padfone 2 - Image 1
The company says it has listened carefully to the customer feedback on the original Padfone and has made some significant improvements for the device's second generation â notably the introduction of a rather special slotting mechanism; the original Padfone featured a lift up cover under which you placed the phone in sideways.

With this new design it's remarkably easy to slot the phone in straight down from the top, while rubber gromits ensure the phone can't slide out unless you want it to. It's a remarkably snug fit and metal plugs at the bottom of the dock provide the contact between the phone and the tablet part.

When you place the phone into the station you feel a small vibration to indicate it has been inserted properly. The content on the phone screen is also transferred to the tablet, but while this is great in theory, it only seems to work with main built-in apps at the moment.
