ASUS' PadFone concept is finally headed to the U.S.

ASUS’ PadFone concept has been around for quite a few years, but the United States has always been left out of the loop. ASUS as a brand may be familiar to U.S. enthusiasts for PC components and notebooks, but the company is virtually unknown to mainstream U.S. smartphone buyers – hence the hesitation.
 
ASUS and AT&T are now looking to change that with the introduction of the PadFone X next month. More specifically, pre-orders for the smartphone-cum-tablet will begin on June 6 at a price of $199 with a two-year contract.
 
“We are proud to add the innovative ASUS PadFone X to AT&T’s leading device portfolio,” said Jeff Bradley, Senior Vice President for Devices at AT&T. “PadFone X offers the ability to instantly experience multiple displays via a premium smartphone and tablet,” added ASUS CEO Jerry Shen.

 
The PadFone X by itself is a 5-inch 1080p smartphone powered by a 2.3GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. It comes equipped with a 13MP rear camera, 16GB of onboard storage and a microSD slot for storage expansion up to 64GB. The device is of course running Android 4.4 KitKat.
 
However, the PadFone X can be transformed into a 9-inch tablet (also 1080p) via the PadFone Station (the PadFone Station is included in the $199 on-contract pricing). The use of the PadFone station also doubles battery life.
 
ASUS and AT&T first announced that the PadFone X would come to America way back in January, so we’re glad that they at least didn’t forget about us…
