Asus PadFone ready to change the game come April

MWC 2012 may be over, but come on, you can’t expect us to close the book on this annual tech feast without tackling one of, if not the most unique device showcased there – the Asus PadFone.

The Fone here stands for an Ice Cream Sandwich-powered dual-core Android handset that sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel F2.2 autofocus main cam at the back, a secondary 0.3-MP VGA cam on the front, and is available in 16/32/64GB models with a microSD card for additional storage.

The Pad, meanwhile, is its tablet dock that rocks a 10.1-inch display so you can to literally get the bigger picture. It also boasts of a 1.3-megapixel front-facing cam, a micro USB and micro HDMI ports, and a 2-in-1 audio jack.

And just like its Transformer sibling, the PadFone too also comes with an optional QWERTY docking station, allowing you to transform this humble little ‘droid to your own personal pseudo lappie.

So that’s 3 birds with 1 stone – a phone, a tablet, and a laptop.

But wait! The innovation doesn’t end there.

See that stylus in the pic? That stylus is more than just a writing tool. It’s also for taking calls. No, seriously. That’s stylus is also a headset.

Check it out in action in the PadFone’s promo vid below:

The Asus PadFone is scheduled to begin shipping in – wait for it - April!  Yeah, baby!

Price, however, is still yet to be known.

More on this once we get word from local officials on this one.

In the meantime, you can check out the rest of the PadFone’s specs here.
