Asus has been teasing us with its innovative Padfone device since last year. Asus Padfone is really a cool concept that docks a smartphone into a tablet and then the tablet turns into a notebook with the help of a keyboard dock. The manufacturer has showed us the final design and final specs of the Asus Padfone at this year’s MWC event. Asus released an official video demo for the Padfone on YouTube, praising its display, processor, battery life and Stylus/headset accessory.
If you need a specs refresher, here’s the list of the key features of the Asus Padfone:
