Asus Padfone up for pre-order tomorrow… In Taiwan.


Asus Padfone up for pre order tomorrow... In Taiwan.

The Asus Padfone, when it was announced, was and still is, widely regarded as the future of the mobile industry. It has the ability to integrate the phone into a tablet, the tablet into a keyboard and the whole lot to an external monitor via its outputs. One device, one set of accessories, all your computing needs.

Today we have heard news that the future is a little bit closer. Asus announced at MWC that the Padfone would be coming out in April and they have kept their word. The device goes up for pre-order tomorrow in Taiwan, with a shipping date of April the 20th.

How much would you pay for the Snapdragon S4 touting all in one set? Keep that figure in mind because there are a couple of options for Asus’ Taiwanese customers and they look something like this;

Phone only NT$17,990 £385  $610
Phone and Tablet NT$24,980 £535  $850
Phone, Tablet and Keyboard dock NT$28,901 £619  $980

Those prices are a conversion at today’s exchange rate, so it might be a tad different when it lands in your part of the world. So if you’re not put off by that pricing, we’re keeping our ears open for some global pricing from Asus in the coming weeks!

    If they can keep phone + tablet dock under £500 in the UK then here’s ONE buyer for a start :-) However, we all know what the UK is like for prices………

    • Exactly Dave; I would love to get my hands on it too! But, I must admit I can’t justify selling my SGS2+ Tablet S just to have to pay an extra £200 to get the phone+dock!
