Review on ASUS PadFone 2The original ASUS PadFone announced earlier this year was an odd device that caused quite a stir. A smartphone that could actually dock inside a tablet, the idea was interesting, but when docked it was massively heavy compared to rivals.
ASUS have gone away and come up with a significant redesign the ASUS PadFone 2. One obvious improvement is the weight of the phone/tablet combo which is down from 844 grams to a more manageable 649 grams, a 25% reduction in weight that makes it almost exactly the same as the current iPad.
The PadFone slides straight into the back of the PadFone station, rather than being hidden under a panel, and it docks into a 13 pin connector. This is a quicker and easier approach than the old PadFone, but unfortunately it means that it is also completely incompatible with the previous model.
The PadFone 2 itself is a smart but somewhat generic looking device with a large 4.7 720 x 1280 pixel panel on the front. ASUSs own technical specifications say that this is a resistive panel rather than a capacitive one. Perhaps this is something to do with handwriting recognition, perhaps it is an error. At this point its very hard to tell, but normally resistive touchscreens are used in cheaper devices, but the PadFone 2 is a pretty high end handset.
