The leaked Asus Padfone tablet and smartphone combo is now officlal. Asus just held a press-conference at the Computex 2011 announcing the Padfone. The Asus Padfone has a 10.1-inch tablet screen and the dockable Android smartphone has a 4.3-inch screen. Asus is only in the prototype stage with the Asus Padfone.

Asus says that users can choose the ideal screen size they want with the Padfone. With the phone docked, it can recharge from the tablet’s larger battery and the tablet can also make use of the smartphone’s 3G internet connection. The dual interfaces for both the pad and phone ensure an enhanced user experience as the layout is automatically adjusted for all activities such as video conferencing, web browsing, and emailing. I am still not convinced if the Padfone is really cool, or just a novelty. Asus has not provided any technical details and possible release date yet for the Padfone.

Asus announced yet another tablet at the Computex that joins the Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad Slider and Eee Slate. The Eee Pad MeMO 3D has a 7-inch screen that can display 3D images without glasses.

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.
