While we wait for an official release date for the Asus Padfone 2 here in Australia, other regions around the world have already started shipping the phone/tablet combo.
MobiCity has now started taking pre-orders for the Padfone 2, with stock expected on the 1st of November. Only the black model is available at the moment, and while it’s compatible with all Australian 3G networks, MobiCity specifically lists ‘No’ for Telstra/Optus 4G.
If you’re considering purchasing one of these, head over to MobiCity’s Padfone 2 page, where it’s available to pre-order for $949 + shipping of around $19, although you had better hurry as they have ~30 units in their first batch.
The Asus Padfone 2 is expected to launch officially in Australia around the end of Q1 2013.
