    Asus Live at MWC

    Well, there have been rumors about a new PadFone (or FonePad) from Asus at MWC. Asus has been running a live feed from livestream.com of the event.


    Jonney has been on stage for about 30 minutes talking about all of the specs and features. Here are the highlights:

    Aircraft aluminum grade back plate
    5.0" 1080p Full HD Display (441 ppi, better than the Retina at 326 ppi). Jonney did throw a jab at Apple's Retina display
    1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 with an Adreno 320 GPU
    2 GB of RAM
    32 GB or 64 GB of on board storage
    EDGE, GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, LTE and CD-HSPA+
    WiFi
    Bluetooth 4.0
    NFS
    A-GPS
    Rear Camera - 13 MP f/2.0 with flash, 1080p video
    Front Camera - 2 MP f/2.0 camera
    19 hours 3G talk time - 2400 mAh battery
    40 hours 3G talk time when docked in tablet
    Tablet dock - 1920x1200 display
    400 nits display brightness

    Price: €999. No word yet if it is coming to the USA


    Jonney just said he is done talking about the PadFone Infinity.

    But, he is not done just yet...

    Now he is unveiling the FonePad (yes, the FONE-PAD)


    Jonney is talking about the Asus fonepad and how people carry a tablet and an HD phone AND a tablet. The fonepad will combine both in one device.

    FonePad details:

    OS: Android JellyBean
    Aircraft aluminum back plate
    7" 1280x800 display
    Intel Atom Z2420 1.2 GHz processor
    1GB RAM
    PowerVRSGX540 GPU
    Front Camera - 1.2 MP
    Rear camera - 3.0 MP
    MicroSD slot up to 32 GB
    Battery - up to 9 hours of runtime

    2 Models have been announced:
    8GB - $249 in March for the US market
    16 GB - €219 in April for the European market

    This is quite a bargain compared to even a Nexus 7 without 3G capabilities.

    So, what are your thoughts about these new devices? Will you be running out and buying them?

    So the FonePad is essentially the same as Samsung's original 7" Tab in concept (which was essentially the Samsung Galaxy S but with a 7" screen)

    The price is pretty good for that, I'd say.

    sounds like a great value for the 7"phone pad..the padfone infinity..meh;
    #1. sounds pricey and again no USA releases.
    #2. AGAIN no keyboard dock...why do they somehow think we dont care about a keyboard and better battery life and more connectors such as sd card of which the dock offers all 3???
    #3. did I miss it I thought it didn't list any kind of SD card slot?

    PadFone did not mention micro SD from what I heard.

    FonePad did list a microSD up to 32 GB.
    I'm sure you can do a 64 if you format with a 3rd party utility.

    I wonder if this is because U.S. carriers want to charge a separate fee for tablet data, so they don't carry it? Has the Padfone ever been sold here?

    Padfone 1 and Padfone 2 have not been sold in the US to date.

    You probably nailed it.

    So do you think it would be safe to assume that when they upgrade the "Transformer" Infinity it will have these items or better?:

    1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 with an Adreno 320 GPU
    2 GB of RAM
    Bluetooth 4.0
    NFC
    Rear Camera - 13 MP f/2.0 with flash, 1080p video

    Are there stereo speakers on this? I can't seem to find that info.
