ASUS, a global leader in the new digi
tal era, today
announces that its eagerly anticipated PadFone


and PadFone


Station will be ready to ship
from April this year. These two devices are expertly designed to offer a completely new mobile
experience. Alone, the PadFone


is a fully featured And
roid


Ice Cream Sandwich
smartphone with a 4.3” screen, but when connected to the PadFone


Station, it transforms
into a 10.1” Android


ICS tablet with
up to 63 hours of talk time
.

Key to the ASUS PadFone

’s supreme ve
rsatility is the unique Dy
namic
Display technology
which allows a

seamless transition between standalone and docked modes, where
the
majority of applications are automatically enhanced

with their display layouts adjusted

to suit
the screen
. A great example of Dynamic
Display in use i
s the email app.
Users

can connect
the
PadFone


to the PadFone


Station while halfway through typing and email, the app will
automatically adjust to take advantage of the PadFone


Station's
10.1” 1280 x 800

screen by
displaying more information such as the

list of emails in
the

inbox with a full

view of an open
email. The intelligent Dynamic
Display

technology

will also ensure that the app remembers
where
it

stopped so that
users

can immediately continue playing that new game without having
to start all over

again when switching from PadFone


to PadFone


Station and vice versa.


Achieve

More

The PadFone


provides all of the PadFone


Station’s processing power and storage when
the two are docked. So no matter which device
was

used last, all photos, documents,
and
games are kept up to date and available whenever
users

need them.
Users

can continue right
where
they

left off when moving from pad to phone without having to start all over
.

Better still,
the PadFone™ Station charges the PadFone™ for up to 63 hours of

extended talk time.


Save More

When docked, the PadFone


Station uses the PadFone

’s 3G connection for internet
access, so
users

only need one data plan for two devices. That translates
in
to
large

savings
every year
.



Super Performance

With a crystal cl
ear Super AMOLED qHD display and powerful dual
-
core
1.5GHz
Qualcomm

Snapdragon S4

processor, the ASUS PadFone


is perfectly suited to the most demanding
usage. Its 8
-
megapixel digital camera with Fuji image processor,
F
2.2 aperture and 5
-
element
lens offer
s best
-
in
-
class performance too

for shooting under low light and various adverse
conditions
, while renowned ASUS SonicMaster technology provides outstanding audio
through the PadFone


Station’s
built

quality speakers.


Unique and
I
nnovative
A
ccess
ories

An optional Bluetooth stylus headset is both a headset and a stylus


users

can use it to draw
and write effortlessly and, when a call comes in while the PadFone


is docked, pick up the
call with ease. The PadFone


Station comes with its own keyboard

dock



the
PadFone™
Station Dock

to meet the needs of more demanding users.
To maximize productivity,
the
Station Dock keyboard accessory also houses its own battery that
charges
the
PadFone™ for
up to 102 hours of talk time and comes with additional USB
ports and card reader
.

To ASUS, a

sleeve is not just a cover
;

the sleeve for the PadFone™
has been

designed it to include a SIM
card slot for frequent travelers, a
long with

a

cleverly hidden

cleaning cloth. Nothing is left to
chance,
with

the brand tag
fas
hioned
to double as a stylus headset combo holder.
