Asus defined the Padfrone segment that has a smartphone docked onto a 10 inch screen to form a tablet, basically a smartphone and tablet hybrid. The PadFone did not really hit the right chords among consumers as it was not really supercharged. Asus has today introduced the Asus PadFone Infinity that seeks to stretch the limits.
PadFone Infinity wears the same design as the previous PadFone but has a diamond cut rear metal to render a premium feel to the phone. Colour options are Titanium Black and Platinum White.
This one comes powered by a 2.2 GHz Quad Core Krait 400 Snapdragon 800 chipset, Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB LPDDR3 RAM with a 5 inch IPS Full HD 1080p display.
The other features include a 13MP rear camera that combines three pixels into one to provide 3MP high quality photos, basically oversampling. Front camera is a 2MP shooter. The Asus Padfone Infinity comes with an option of 16 or 32GB internal storage expandable via microSD. It supports LTE and runs on a 2400mAh battery.
It will sell running Android 4.2 skinned by Asus and will sell at $640 for the phone and the PadFone Station at $240 with a few weeks before it goes out to the market.
