At Computex Taipei, Asus unveiled a new device called padfone which is a combination of a smartphone and a tablet. It is the first kind of a gadget that uses one SIM for both the phone and the tablet. Asus still had not released the full details on the specifications of the device.
However it seems to me that the product will be very exciting as its some of the features are very new to the digital world. Today mobile phones have lot more processing power compared to previous generations.
Design Philosophy Of Asus
Asus padfone believes in people centric design. Asus brought N + 1 concept to the life where N means the current product that is there and N + 1 means to add on the single change that allows the product to go beyond its current capability.
So Asus made a device the complements the phone and allow consumers to enjoy the benefits of both a phone and a tablet.
Combination of Phone and Tablet
We use phones for our daily conversations and do things on the Internet. But due to the small screen size limitations of mobile phones most consumers would love to buy a tablet for better user experience.
However Asus padfone is the combination of both gadgets and it is really a great breakthrough. Now by placing the phone into the tablet, customers can enlarge the screen size from phone to tablet with an expandable keyboard anytime and anywhere.
Hassle Free Data Transfer
Wi-Fi internet access comes easy as the tablet has 3G network connection from the phone. So there would be no hassles with data transfers between the two devices. Wi-Fi availability will not restrict your usage as the internet access from the 3G network connection is shared between the phone and tablet.
Asus claims a lot of research and discussion are done during the designing process. Padfone ensures that the body gives the consumer a comfortable grip even after the heavy usage in the longer term.
The curves of Asus padfone are really smooth and sleek. Especially on the edge of the back cover and where the phone is place as that is an area which well be in frequent contact with the hands.
