Asus is at it again with its transforming phone / tablet hybrid phone and tablet as the company has just announced at its CES 2014 press conference the $249 PadFone mini, a 4-inch phone that docks into the back of a 7-inch tablet and becomes one infused device. The phone is an old 800 x 480 and the tablet is not so impressive at 1280 x 800 screen.
The phone specs
- Comes with Android 4.3
- 4 inch screen
- A 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor
- Skinned with Asus’ new ZenUI,
- 8-megapixel rear camera,
- Massive 3270mAh battery
Asus has also announced a new lineup called ZenFone seen above, they all come in different screen sizes from 4-, 5-, and 6-inch models in a variety of colors, beginning at a crazy low price of $99. All three are powered by Intel processors, and have the same ZenUI over top of Android 4.3. The ZenFone 6’s differs from the rest by having a “pencil-compatible” touchscreen, which lets you use any pen or pencil as a stylus just like on the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
