The Asus Padfone and the Transformer Pad TF330T will be launched in Bangalore tomorrow, September 18. For the Delhi circle tech enthusiasts a bloggers' meet will be held in the last week of September.
The three-in-one device, Asus Padfone first captured our attention in Computex event in 2011. Equipped with a 4.3-inch 960x540 Super AMOLED capacitive multi touch display, the PadFone runs on Android ICS and a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 8260A processor.
The unique feature of the device is that it slides neatly inside a tablet bringing better battery life. Slip the tablet into a keyboard, and it's a laptop that works as a phone. And yes you can take calls when the padphone is docked inside the tablet via a bluetooth headset.
The device also sports a 8-megapixel auto focus camera with LED Flash and a secondary VGA camera along with 1GB RAM providing ample capability for multi-tasking.
The other device hitting the Indian shores is Transformer Pad TF300T which broke cover at CES 2012.
The Transformer Pad TF300T boasts of impressive specs like its sibling Transformer Prime notably, Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC. The Android Jelly Bean powered tablet sports a 10.1-inch IPS display, 1GB RAM along with 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.
There is no official word on its pricing yet but seeing Asus past launches you can be assured that it will be exorbitant.
Asus stunned everybody when it launched its first quad-core tablet Transformer Prime for Rs 50,000 in India - hopefully this time around we will see some sane pricing.
