Asus PadFone Mini gets official

Just days after the leak, Asus has officially announced the new PadFone Mini in Taiwan today. Asus emphasized its "N+1 philosophy" at the launch. The philosophy, Asus says, aims to add a simple alteration to allow the product to "evolve beyond its current capability."

That is evident on the company's flagship PadFone phone-within-a-tablet device. Borrowing much of its success on the PadFone Infinity, the new PadFone Mini features a 4.3-inch phone with a smaller 7-inch tablet dock. It seems that the previous rumors were spot on.

Under the hood of the phone is a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon MSM8226 processor with a 1GB RAM. The phone has a decent 960 x 540 screen, while the tablet has a 1,280 x 800 resolution display. Storage is ample, thanks to its 16GB internal storage and microSD support. Asus says that users can enjoy up to 85GB of space when using the additional web storage bundle. Users will also love the fact that the phone can be charged on the tablet itself.

Asus also introduced a new camera feature called "Owl Mode" which uses four sensors to produce better pictures.

"HTC's UltraPixel technology only gives you 4 megapixels, so it's always just 4 megapixels even in daylight. But ours is different: when you're in a dark environment, an owl [icon] pops up, you tap on it to toggle [Hi-Light Mode] quadrupled light sensitivity. When you're outdoor, you can go back to 13 megapixels," says Asus CEO Jerry Shen.
