ASUS PadFone line will now have a laptop mode

The last time we had a little chat with the ASUS CEO Jerry Shen, it was quite evident that he had been in support of bringing back the keyboard dock to the PadFones all this time. Bringing this back means that one single product is going to hold three form factors which will include a phone, a tablet and a laptop. According to a recent leak, it has been hinted that this product is pretty much coming our way soon. Thanks to some peeps at the Mobile Geeks, an FCC document has been dug out which reveals the "ASUS Mobile Dock Keyboard" which is going to make use of Bluetooth for connectivity instead of a physical docking interface.

The leaked picture is not so clear to put a finger on any exact spec but it still manages to show the 25cm width which indicates that it has been made exclusively for the upcoming PadFone X for AT&T. However, the lack of locking mechanism suggests it might accommodate other similarly-sized PadFone Station tablets as well, though there's no telling how secure the fit would be.

The most important advancements has been ASUS’s ides of keeping the bulky battery out of the product to reduce the weight but this means that the phone or tablet would not be able to be charged with the dock. In fact the 450mAh cell will be used to power up the Bluetooth radio plus the multi-touch trackpad and this will have to be charged separately with the dock's micro-USB port.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
