    Got an official answer from Asus:

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    Thank you for your email.

    Do notice that the Andorid firmware for the Padfone is based on a mobile phone. If the firmware would have been based on a tablet version it wouldnt have been possible to use most of the the mobile functions.

    So in this case you are right and you only have phone apps available as this is an Android Mobile/ Smart Phone with a 10'' tablet screen and not just an Android Tablet.

    I hope to have informed you enough. Ik hoop u hierbij voldoende te hebben geinformeerd.

    Kind regards/ vriendelijke groet,

    Pierre Kotlarski Asus TSD.

    I got another answer:

    Thanks for your reply.Could you tell me what the use is of the "Pad only" section in the apps list? I can install tablet apps on my TF101 and make a backup, which I restore on my Padfone, but I am selling my TF101, so that won't be an option anymore.I can only get tablet apps when I download the apk from torrents, because I can't see them in Google Play. This is not what I want, because I am willing to pay for tablet apps via Google Play (so I can get updates for the apps).A third option for me is to root the Padfone and change the build.prop, but rooting is also something I don't want to do. Is there gonna be an update for the firmware in which the Padfone is seen as a tablet when it's inside the Pad? Kind regards,

    Answer:

    We have shared your concerns to our headquarters. It seems that more people would like to have these possibilities and we can't blame them. Hopefully Asus will be able to create a firmware update on short notice which will add this function.

    At this moment we cannot make any promises yet.

    We hope to have informed you enough.

    Best regards,

    Asus TSD

    Thanks a lot Xyphoid, even though I haven't bought the PadFone yet (and probably wait for the PadFone 2), this is a VERY important subject since I wanted the tablet mode to be able to use Photoshop Touch as priority... but also other tablet apps...

    It is a good thing that ASUS is paying attention, and I know that their customer service was a problem in the past but they are trying hard to change that.

    Another contact that I have been seeing around and one who is very helpful is "Tien Phan <cl-tien@asus.com>". He will reply any queries you might have and hopefully this issue gets resolve in the near future...

    I am eagerly waiting for the October 16th announcement.
