Just bought this from DWI digital cameras, link below. Purchased on the 26th of December(public holiday), shipped on 2nd of Jan, received on 4th on January. I ended up paying $920AUD(64GB & Pad station) inc express & ins shipping with DHL. So I can vouch for DWI in terms of shipping of the item.

The phone itself is great since I now can use the phone and not have to worry about it dying on me towards end of the night since I work 2 jobs. I am using it with telstra atm since it has LTE. I like the idea I can use the "pad station" to charge the phone when it is connected. You can actually choose other modes to balance the power when docked as well. The Phone itself is great and picked up the jelly bean update as soon as it was connected to my wifi.

I used ES file browser connect to my other devices on my home network and streaming & copying works great. I get speeds upto 1.5MB/s when copying over wifi to the phone.

The phone is nice to handle and doesn't get hot like my HTC velocity. It is speedy and responsive. I just have trouble finding accessories suited specifically for the padfone 2.

The only issue I had was it came as chinese default but is easy to change to english, using youtube video tutorials. End of the day it is a smartphone so real use battery life will suffer since it is a very powerful device. But with the docking station makes it more bearable. And I can actually use it in the tablet mode as well so I don't "need" to carry another device.

Just bought it while in Hongkong.
The price for Handheld is HKD 4298/4698/5298 (16GB/32GB/64GB) while the dock station is HKD 1700 if bought with handheld, or HKD 2100 if bought just itself.

I'm super like this padfone 2, it will be replace my gnote2. The specs is super, the display is better than gnote2 in my opinion, overall the best gadget for now. :D

Its a great phone and gives hard competition to Samsung, HTC, etc.
Do anyone tell me where to purchase it in India? And when it is going to launch in India?

Been proud owner of one of these beauty's since about two weeks now, nothing to say, just awesome really, my expectations were answered in all accounts.

In response to the last posts, the camera films 60 fps in 720p, no problem there, and regarding the keyboard you can always use Bluetooth keyboard while Asus doesn't launch a specific one (i think they will).

Only the future S4 can take this machine head on and surpass it!

Looking good so far. I'm wondering though if anyone is experiencing the same issue as me when it comes to filming at 720p at 60fps, i'm only able to get 19fps at 720p, tried many different settings and still only 19fps and it says 720p at 60fps but plays at 19, 1080p works fine with 30fps.
