Zabuza, 16 Oct 2012This phone is very expansive for new company in mobile industry like asus .. Samsung note 2... moreAsus is not new to mobile world and was making smartphones before Samsung was, virtually everything in this phone is better then the note 2
The "tablet dock" is simply a screen and battery so puting the phone into the dock has the phone's display output to a larger screen. This turns the phone into a tablet.
This phone is very expansive for new company in mobile industry like asus ..
Samsung note 2 is better in spec and price ..
I used to hate samsung but i fall in love with samsung after i bought s2 .
Now i bought note 2..
only samsung deserve my money and i will not give my money to any other company :)
It shoots at 60fps ~ it can tape a slow motion video, if I'm goon buy such a device it would be for its camera.
So, what is Asus offering more than Samsung to pretend those prices?
Agreed, 16 Oct 2012Yeah dude my sympathies are with you. because I have been seeing lately that all phones that a... moreIts bcoz australia is teeny tiny country population wise...some of yhe bog citors of india and china has more pop than whole australia and its nt a growing mobile market....
So basically the big draw with this device is that you can stick the phone in the back of the tablet?
I don't think Asus's Padfone concept work because it is redundant to plug the phone (fone) to the tablet PC (Pad).
The good part about the Padfone 2 is that one Padfone station can be shared between any number of people. So fork out the cash for the phone and split the cost of the Padfone station with someone (or more than one person). The phone itself is great value for its specs. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
Pelipe, 16 Oct 2012It's the Apple Overpricing Factor (production costs ~ $210 for iPhone5) working here!no , its just those are the prices of the device and the dock
How come its going to most of Europe but not the uk? I really want this in the uk especially with EE being the first to go 4g, please Asus ship it to the uk.
theseeker, 16 Oct 2012Is Australia no more to be found on earth...Yeah dude my sympathies are with you. because I have been seeing lately that all phones that are being launched have no mention of an important market like Australia. (I am not from Australia though)
samsung has already sold 20-30 million galaxy s3 .... and they're now dropping it's price substancially
this is the advantage of samsung being able to deliver products earlier than the competition.
i just wonder how this product can compete with ridiculously high prices.
nice gadget but at those prices ........ for about $100 more i can already get an S3 and a galaxy note 10.1 , that's 2 separate devices each with it's own quadcore cpu
Yup. Digitizer is very different thing. Samsung uses WACOM's and with a big screen like Note,Note2 or Note 10, works great...
I didn't interest in capasitive screens after using Samsung Galaxy Note! Writing, drawing etc. awesome!
I appreciate all this new tech, but when will companies like Samsung, Asus, Apple, Nokia etc etc start taking Africa serious (Nigeria), they have good market here but each time a new product is out we have to wait for eons to buy them here.
Let them look out what Blackberry are doing now, over two million devices from Nigeria, that is impressive.
