The price group for this is 250? Could you send a link about this? I can find this padfone in amazon from 500 and not 250.

BorneoPontianak, 16 Oct 2014when can I buy Asus Fonepad S in Indonesia?launching in singapore today @ $399 singapore dollars. awaiting further information
Heard it's be selling at S399 when launching, I guess this is the most affordable phone can be found in the market with Snapdragon 801 and FUll HD screen.
superb price, branded...LTE 4g, NFC, bluetooth 4.0, hotspot, expendablee memory, good clock speed(2.3ghz autofocus 13mp camera, weight is acceptable, high 441ppi sharp resolution , perfect screen 5 inci size...(asean can use in their tiny hand too)
the cons is BATTERY..!!! 2300mh..??? so sad/ LOL..u should put 3000mh at least.. this will rock.
DeRoy, 11 Oct 2014specs is super tip-top but the battery is horrible .. asus should take note for the battery .. i dunnoe about this i ahd padfone 2 and was happy with the battery life until it had the zen ui.... the battery life is really bad.

The only difference I can find with this device is the chipset itself.
its a tad bit better, but from what I heard from the Padfone X it can short circut itself and fry its modem.
Now I hope this does not have such a problem and it looks like there isn't for this model.
dk, 09 Oct 2014My only worries are the battery.can it even last a day of usageI have one, if you keep playing games, it can only last for 6 hours.
pls sold the additional items as taiwan too!
Nintin, 16 Aug 2014Help me understand what you meant by "insert the phone into the tablet"The phone comes with a tablet that is powered by the phone itself. The tablet acts like a docking station that basically projects the phone into a 10 inch screen.
basiljaved, 01 Aug 2014Is it going to be $199USD? What about Malaysia? Probably the price is not gonna be the same. ... moreHi,I am a PadFone 2 user, also interested in PadFone S. I had confirmed with Asus Malaysia. PadFone S will be released in Malaysia but the date and price still not yet determined. Asus Fone is innovation but the quality for the first batch is usually problematic. My word of advice: buy it a few months after released.
I've had mine for a couple of weeks now. AT&T is the provider. Cost for the phone and tablet was, indeed, $199. You can also purchase it for prepaid use for $549.
So far, excellent. The only issue I had was when I would insert the phone into the tablet with the swipe to unlock feature on, it would freak out and require I reboot. Turn off the swipe to unlock...no problems (although I do, now, accidentally pocket dial people from time to time). This is likely a simple software fix I hope to see from Asus soon.
Call quality is excellent. The phone is extremely fast. Even the tablet is very fast with the phone inserted (its a dumb screen without the phone). Screen quality is outstanding. Best of all my devices (which includes iPad rentia and Asus Nexus 7 2nd gen). I'll likely sell these off now.
Camera quality is also excellent. The software is easy to use and captures great pictures and video. The ability to shoot up to 100 pictures, very rapidly, is a blast.
Good battery life (not crazy good though...I have not problem getting through the day, but you'll definitely need to charge up every night).
I've been waiting for this form factor for years and this is it. The only thing I would change is to make the tablet screen bigger (its still good at 9 inches) and make it thinner with the phone inserted (I know...that's a tough one...betcha they get there in a few years though).
I give it an 8.5 - 9 out of 10.
