Photos : Asus PadFone - hands on walkthrough

Asus has recently launched at Mobile World Congress 2012 a new Android mobile phone that can be added to a dumb tablet screen, turning that device into a fully functioning Android 10.1-inch screen based tablet. This in turn, can be added to a keyboard dock to transform the tablet-powered-phone, into a laptop.

The name of the handset is the Asus PadFone and ITProPortal is now publishing a hands-on walkthrough in pictures, of this very device.

The phone ships with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, running from a dual core 1.5Ghz processor, which is supported by 1GB of RAM and comes in either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, with an 8-megapixel digital camera that has a Fuji image processor.

Asus PadFone runs from Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich' 4.0 OS, where the PadFone Station offers up five times the battery life, compared with the phone. The PadFone Station Dock turns the tablet in to a laptop - and in the same way as the EeePad Transformer or Transformer Prime operates.
