ASUS PadFone bald erhältlich

Wie wir bereits berichteten, kommt das PadFone von ASUS tatsächlich auf den Markt, die bisher einzigartige Kombination aus Smartphone, Tablet und Keyborddock. Auf dem MWC 2012 wurde das Gerät in einem Serienreifen Zustand präsentiert und konnte sowohl mit Konzept als auch Verarbeitung und Leistung punkten. Nun rückt der Release unaufhaltsam näher.

So wird das PadFone ab dem 20. April in Taiwan erhältlich sein, kann ab dem heutigen Datum auch vorbestellt werden. Zumindest erfolgt die Auslieferung der ersten Einheiten ab diesem Datum und interessanterweise ist neben Hong Kong und Singapur auch Deutschland als nächste an der Reihe. Im Heimatland von ASUS wird das Gerät über Chungwa und Senao International vertrieben, hierzulande dürften neben Amazon auch die Netzanbieter als Vertriebspartner fungieren.

Auch erste Preise sind bekannt geworden. So kostet die Kombination aus PadFone, PadStation und Tastaturdock NT$28,901, umgerechnet ca. 750 Euro. Das PadFone alleine wird umgerechnet ca. 450 Euro kosten, für 200 Euro mehr gibt es das PadFone zusammen mit der PadStation. Die Preise beruhen auf den lokalen Preisen, die Endpreise für Deutschland können aber noch abweichen.

ASUS PadFone™ is Available for Purchase in Taiwan

The beginning of a world-wide launch to be followed by Singapore, Hong Kong and

Taipei, Taiwan (5 April, 2012) – ASUS today announced that the much anticipated
PadFone™ will be available for pre-sale in Taiwan from tomorrow, Friday April 6, 2012. The
official launch event was opened with an introduction by ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih and a
detailed product presentation by ASUS CEO Jerry Shen.

“I am very excited to deliver the ASUS PadFone into the hands of our customers. It is an
ultra-savvy intelligent device that combines the function of a phone, a pad, as well as a
notebook. It was built to offer users an unrivalled level of performance, customization and
choice in how they connect with their digital world. Welcome to the future,” said Jerry Shen,
ASUS CEO. “I would also like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to our local
partners,” Mr. Shen added as he introduced Chuanghwa Telecom Chairman Shyue-Ching Lu
(呂學錦) and Senao International President Paul Lin (林保雍) to join him on stage.

Customers can make their purchase at all participating Chunghwa Telecom and Senao stores
throughout Taiwan starting from April 20th while pre-order begins tomorrow. Taiwan will be
the first market to enjoy the newest ubiquitous cloud computing experience created by ASUS,
with Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany and more European countries to follow shortly.

The ASUS PadFone is an incredible 4.3” smartphone featuring a Super AMOLED qHD
display, the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 dual core 1.5GHz processor, an ultra-
sharp 8-megapixel digital camera with Fuji image processor, F/2.2 aperture, and a 5-element
lens all wrapped in an exquisite design that is optimized for Google’s Android 4.0 operating
system. When placed inside the optional PadFone Station, it transforms into a 10.1” tablet
with up to *63 hours of extended talk time. The PadFone offers unmatched versatility via
ASUS’ proprietary DynamicDisplay technology which allows seamless transition between the
PadFone and PadFone Station display screens. In addition, the PadFone Station offers an
optional keyboard dock that essentially turns the PadFone into an ultraportable computing
device, with an extended talk time of up to 102 hours*. The PadFone also comes with the
option of a PadFone Stylus Headset which is a Bluetooth stylus pen that transforms into a
headset for picking up calls easily.

PadFone owners will also be receiving 32GB of ASUS WebStorage for three years and
utilize ASUS’ cloud service to optimize their ubiquitous cloud computing experience. This
latest ASUS innovation comes preinstalled with ASUS’ exclusive SuperNote application —a
versatile note taking app that allows users to take notes and information through a variety of
options, including the keyboard, finger input, photo and video capture or audio notes.

on 2G network use with the PadFone Station and Station Dock acting as chargers only. Actual performance may
vary depending on applications, usage, environment and other factors. Content and product availability varies by
