Weâ€™ve already got a bunch of Android tablets out now, some of which even double-duty as a phone.
But come on, let’s face it. Placing aÂ 7-inch tablet, even more so a 10-incher, beside your face isnâ€™t the most flattering way to make a phone call.
That’s about to change, though, with Asus’ newly announcedÂ Padfone . Unlike the tablets we’ve seen so far, this tablet comes packed with a phone literally under the hood.
This, however, is just a mock-up, and its final design could still be changed before it rolls out to the public. But if it were to retain the measurements and features of the devices unveiled at Computex over in Taiwan, what we’re looking at is a 10.1-inch tablet with a dock-able 4.3-inch touting Android phone with a 5-megapixel camera ’round the back.
Here’s a teaser vid for the upcoming Padfone, which also shows off the recharging capability of the tablet once the phone’s properly docked in it:
The rest of its specs, as well as specific release info (ETA is around Christmas), are all still yet to be known.
Asus already has quite an enticing tablet treat in the form of the Eee Pad Transformer. Do they have another hit on their hands with their reinvention of the Android tablet/phone? Only time will tell, but one thing we do know, though. This is definitely one of the more unique tablets we’ve seen in quite a while.
