    Asus PadFone in U.S. Via Negri Electronics; $860 Smartphone & Tablet-dock Bundle


    The Asus PadFone found its way into the United States. You can now order the PadFone with Tablet-Dock Bundle for $860 bucks at Negri Electronics. Although the price seems to be a bit steep when taken as a whole, if you view the devices separately, it's fairly cost-effective, since you are getting a very good unlocked and no-contract smartphone that converts into a powerful 10-inch Asus tablet. The only real negative is that this price does not include the optional keyboard dock, nor the bluetooth stylus. Those will have to be purchased separately.

    Just as a refresher, the specs on the phone (other than the mediocre battery, which becomes phenomenal or can be recharged when docked with the tablet) are pretty robust. Here's a recap of specs for the super-hybrid:
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU
    • 4.3-inch AMOLED display
    • 16GB of expandable storage
    • HSPA+ connectivity
    • 1,520mAh battery
    • 10-inch PadFone Station (tablet dock) - with 9x increase in battery life

    What do you guys think of this amazing concept? In the U.S. you will be limited to using it on AT&T or TMo, but being contract free certainly seems appealing.

    I really like the concept, but if you want any kind of data speed faster than 2G/EDGE in US/Canada, I'd suggest you wait for the official NA version... The one being sold now has the following specs:

    GENERAL
    2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    3G Network WCDMA 900 / 2100

    This means No 3G in US/Canada
    Tablet: Asus TF101 B9O 16 GB + 32 GB microSD | SOC: 1.4 GHz Tegra 2 | OS: Team EOS 4 JB 4.2.2 (latest nightly) | Kernel: KAT 103 | Dock: B7O
    Phone: Samsung Galaxy Nexus i9250 16 GB | SOC: 1.2 GHz OMAP4 | OS: stock JB 4.1.2 (JZO54K)
    Laptop: Dell XPS 1340 | CPU: Core 2 Duo P8600 w/ 4GB DDR3 dual-channel | OS: Win7 Pro | Other: copper mod

    Means i can get the whole pack for 860 ? It seems a very good price for what it is to me, an improved TF101 with battery that last longer, running Google's linux distro.

    If they do the same they did for the TF101, my usage will make it last longer the advertised, didn't they adviertised it to last 100 hours ?

    Plus i'll have a phone for my pro line, fed up to get customers call at night.
