Asus PadFone release nears with MWC reveal

Asus are possibly better known for their laptop range and more recently the Eee Pad Transformer and the Transformer Prime. Last year the company announced its Padfone concept, and after what seems a long delay the Asus Padfone release nears with an upcoming MWC reveal next month.

It seems that Asus are set to reveal the final design at the Mobile World Congress on February 27th, and allows users to dock their smartphone into the back of a tablet. According to a report over at Android and Me, there have been various reports that the device will come using the Nvidia Tegra power plant.

But there have also been some leaked benchmarks that have suggested it will use the Snapdragon S4 processor, which was confirmed when a prototype unit was spotted at the recent CES event. This could all change though as the company is expected to reveal an all new design compared to al the prototypes that have been seen so far.

It will also mean the overall design will have changed because of the physical keys being removed as the device is expected to come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich straight out of the box. Another great feature of the Padfone is that it will support the Asus Transformer keyboard dock.

The device that was seen recently at CES had support for the older TF101 unit, but it would seem the redesigned Padfone would support the TF201 that is used with the Transformer Prime. Do you like the look of the Asus Padfone?
