We recently wrote a post about the revolutionary new Galaxy Note that combines the world of smartphones and tablets. Well, they are not alone. Asus has also come out with a new phone called the “PadFone” which takes a little bit different twist. The PadFone is essentially a high tech smartphone that slips easily into the back of a 10-inch touch touchpad so you can have a better end user experience in what they call DynamicDisplay technology.
You can seamlessly transition between the two devices.
They explain it this way on their site:
“ASUS exclusive technology automatically adjusts the PadFone’s display layout when it is placed into the PadFone Station to enable you to view and enjoy more. The intelligent DynamicDisplay technology will also ensure that the app remembers where you stopped so that you can immediately continue playing that new game without having to start all over again when switching from PadFone to PadFone Station and vice versa.”
Additionally the PadFone can connect to a keyboard to give the sense of small lightweight computer or tablet. This unique set up of placing the phone into the PadFone station will definitely take some time to adjust and raises questions about how it may compete against other phone/tablet combinations like the Galaxy Note. The clear advantage with the PadFone is that you’re getting a full 10-inch display which is great when you want to view on a larger display. The specifications are nothing to scoff at with its advanced technology and healthy feature list.
According to Asus, the company is named after Pegasus from Greek mythology.
“These facets are not lost in ASUS, which is named after it. The company embodies the strength, purity, and creative spirit of this mythical creature, and soars to new heights with each product it produces.”
You have to give props to Asus for this creative twist that radiates with innovation and creativity if nothing else.
