There are a lot of discussions about ASUS PadFone 2 lately, the new hybrid between phone and tablet will be officially debut on October 16, in an event in Milan and one in Taipei. There were a few glitches so far, but today, the terminal was officially approved by the GCF (Global Certification Forum).
Previously we found out that this device will come with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the operating system. GCF certification confirms LTE presence support in the feature list, in bands such as 3, 7 and 20, used in Asia, Latin America and Europe.
ASUS PadFone 2 will include both a tablet, with a docking role, and a smartphone that will be integrated into the tablet, and, unfortunately, at this time we don’t have the possible pricing details or launch period.
If you ask me what I want from the PadFone 2, I can say that I want them to keep the attractive design of the first smartphone generation, while the tablet could be something more elegant and thinner. The stumpy and thickened area of the tablet where the phone was placed, is somehow unaesthetic and PadFone phone battery could be improved. We will learn more in a week at the event in Milan or Taipei.
