Well done ASUS. The saving is in not having to have additional sims and data contracts. Just please add card slot, and jelly bean. Truly innovative. From a die hard htc fan, this one made me stop and think. Love the LTE, and design. This innovation brings simplicity. One sim, one place for pics, cloud, one brilliant phone.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2012how come? it's not a necessity, but an additional expenseThe docking station with extra-battery and loudspeakers is an excellent idea !
If they would put a keybord to it - well, that would be the egg of columbus !!!
That would be the NONPLUSULTRA !!!
THEY HAVE TO DO IT !
IF NOT, IT WOULD BE STUPID !!!!!!
there is no way that de keyboard dock will be possible?. Asus dont say anything? On the padfone club, an supposed spokesperson of asus say "is not possible" . Read it and comment http://padfoneclub.com/news.php?extend.36. Thanks for all

I know this sounds stupid, but I wish you could separably buy just the phone, and then later on buy the tablet.

Gsmarena, some good advice. In video resolution bracket make sure you put detail info like slo motion recording and framerate aswell etc. U like?
I want a keyboard dock! hopefully with a full-size- SD slot and -USB port, and -HDMI. Padfone 2 can be a real pc killer, and if this one don't turn out to be the pc killer I want, i hope the future versions of padfone 3-4 will be it.
I would love to own just one complete hybrid.
Peanutz8, 19 Oct 2012I would have definately bought one already...but ASUS made me think twice without putting an e... mores3 is by far the most hyped phone on the planet. It is very hyped because it's the anti iphone5 . If they stop supporting it by word, they lose. Most glitched phone ever I've ever used. Wonderful features, but the glitches and the the poor quality of the phone, was a easy no. This phone is far more stable, and btw, some apps only work with internal memory. I say this again, some important maps will NOT WORK ON MICRO SD CARDS,
Padfone 2 making worest stylus missing tablet lower battery life no MHL mircosd card gone, this is a downgrade then a upgrade now looking forward other model phone getting disappointed with Asus non perfection product owner user padfone n transformer prime
lawlee, 17 Oct 2012u don't need a card slot if you buy 64gb. That's how they make more money they took out the card slot cause they know if people need more space they'll go for the 64 Gb. There is no way they couldn't include one look how slim the S3 is & they included one. Only reason I'm interested in this phone is the camera, screen & look. Checked out the camera & it doesn't seem to be all that. I thought I might be giving up my S3 maybe not.
Asus need to have a product which is class apart and forces people to buy them.. for that to happen they need to add keyboard, stylus and basic radio as well and thn offer it at prices announced already..like s2 n note chanced brand perception for samsung, asus need to make padfone2 as flagship brand builder..super profits wld flow later..
I would have definately bought one already...but ASUS made me think twice without putting an expandable card slot...:( ill admit im REALLY dissapointed...even the first padfone had one...PFFF...now im thinking about the samsung galaxy s3...there is always sumfin that other fones dont have. i tried not going for a samsung s3 but everything points towards it...its the most all rounded fone there is...
