good to know they r coming out with the 2nd version! design is subjective and i dont like the name too but for those who havent own the 1st generation before, try it b4 u judge it. the concept of a phone-tablet fusion is very good. yes, the software side is not optimized yet but it's early days.... the choices u had to carry either 1 or both of them out for various of reasons is a better option to always carry both out! and hopefully during the launch, they'll give JB to the Padfone too.... ^_^

"PadFone" has got to be the worst tech-product name ever!
