The Asus Padfone is without question the ultimate convergent device. At first glance the Padfone looks like an ordinary tablet, but tucked inside the back casing is a smartphone. RIM might have set the bar for smartphone tablet harmony with BlackBerry Bridge, but Asus Padfone is on an entirely new level. Is this the tablet future?
Described as the symbiotic gadget, the Asus Padfone is quickly becoming one of the most interesting pieces of tech as of late. The synergy that exists between the smartphone and the tablet is remarkable — both devices share a single SIM card, the smartphone can be ‘docked’ inside the rear of the tablet for charging, applications can transition between devices and there’s no need to transfer data since both devices share a single storage pool.
Hardware-wise, the Padfone is a 4.3-inch smartphone and a 10.1 inch tablet. The core concept behind this amazing creation is a “people-centric design” — something Asus likes to call “N+1”. N represents the current product (smartphone), +1 evolves the product (tablet dock). Now it’s decision time — Asus Padfone or Eee pad Transformer?
