ASUS exhibit Padfone 2

ASUS-Padfone-2

The Taiwanese ASUS has unveiled the Padfone 2 at an event held in Taiwan. We’ve seen most of the specs already so don’t expect any tech miracles but here’s a quick list as to what the Padfone comes with.

The device is an upgrade to the first Padfone and comes with a 4.7-inch Super IPS Plus display with 720p resolution and IGZO technology. There’s also a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP camera with a sensor from Sony and a f/2.4 lens, a 1.2 MP web camera, LTE, NFC, a 2140 mAh battery and finally Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The device should also get an upgrade to Jelly Bean soon.

As to the tablet the Padfone 2 inherits the first Padfone features – the phone itself once docked powers the 10.1-inch display but the integrated 5000 mAh battery will charge the phone once connected.

The Padfone 2 will be available in three versions – with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB of storage and will cost between 620 USD and 750 USD depending on storage. The tablet itself costs 310 USD but if you combine it with the ASUS phone the tablet goes down to 210 USD.

The Padfone 2 is available in Taiwan now. It will be launched before the end of December in Europe (Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and Sweden) and Asia (Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and U.A.E). Availability in other countries will be announced at a later date.
