With the official launch of the Asus Padfone 2 going ahead in Milan tonight, the phone/tablet combo unit has been officially unveiled in Taipei by Asus CEO Jerry Shen. As we saw earlier in the leaked video the newer combo has a new docking system which does away with the cassette deck style interface and the phone has a slightly larger screen among other improved specifications.

Phone Specs :

  • 4.7″ 720p Super IPS+ Display
  • Quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13MP Rear camera and 1.2MP Front-facing camera
  • NFC
  • 16/32/64GB versions
  • Ice Cream Sandwich with Jelly Bean upgrade comning
  • LTE 800/1,800/2,600MHz
  • 2,140mAh Battery

Tablet Specs :

  • 10.1″ IPS Display
  • 5,000mAh battery

Engadget did mention that the Australian market was definitely mentioned so this one is definitely inbound. We expect to hear a lot more when the event is streamed live from Milan tonight at 8pm, you can check it out live on the Asus Website and as soon as we have some further details we’ll let you know.

very disappointed at the lack of Keyboard base – if there ever will be one for it. 🙁 That was what made the original Padfone (and it’s spiritual predecessors like the Moto Atrix) so special.


Love the sweeping curves where the phone docks.

Shudder to think of the price given the phone alone will give the best a run for their money.


It looks like you have missed a ” randomly on the end.

Also, I like the new design


The synchro between a phone and tablet doesn’t come any stronger than with the Patrons 2/tablet. I am looking for far more than just a phone with my next aqusition


Are they Australian let freq? Interested in this.


Australian LTE is 1800Mhz at the moment so it’s probably a ‘yes’.


I read on Engadget that the Australian/US LTE was coming ‘later’ (without a date given)
