Isn't it fine to have a smartphone that fits in your pocket? Isn't it dandy to have a tablet for two-handed tasks? Soon you'll be able to buy both for just $200 — no contract required — with this Intel-powered smartphone that transforms into a tablet.
If it were sold without its tablet dock, you might give the Padfone phone a second look all on its own. It's really pretty, after using it for a few minutes, it's just as powerful and smooth as any other flagship Android phone coming out, like the Optimus G Pro or the HTC One.
Asus has just announced the latest version of its previously awkward Padfone—but this time round, it seems that the hardware might live up to previous promises.
