As expected, Asus have confirmed that they plan to officially announce their PadFone phone / tablet hybrid on 27th February at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress.
Expected to feature Ice Cream Sandwich and Tegra3 in line with the Transformer tablets, the device represents a real innovation in the current market and a potential for cost reduction by avoiding duplication of the 'guts' of your Android devices. Fringe benefits such as no longer needing to sync data between different devices shouldn't be underestimated too! NetbookNews have a pretty good video of the device on YouTube (embedded below), which also shows compataibility with the dock from the original Transformer.
I am pretty excited about this one, I just hope that Asus really make the phone itself top notch as it's not an area they have a lot of recent experience in! What are your thoughts?
