Specs needs updating. GSM version release is slated for April 2012. But I guess GSMarena has its hands full with all the new goodies from MWC :)

Plz update info. u can get specs from official site. And realease date is April 2012/
I believe it will have Bluetooth 4.0 as well
These specs seem outdated. I am hoping it will have NFC, then this will be the perfect phone for me.
Mickwa, 16 Feb 2012Why Honeycomb? New devices are supposed to be carrying ICS. A put off.the specifications on this page are out of date. Currently it appears the padfone will ship with ICS, an 8 mp camera and likely a tegra 3 CPU. It also seems like some Asus reps have been saying it will be compatible with the transformer (1?) dock but reps have been known to make mistakes about this kind of stuff.

These are old specs. New reports say the Padfone will be sporting Tegra 3 and ICS.
Does anyone know the full specs for the brains of this duo, namely the mobile phone handset? All I can find out is that it has a quad core CPU and a 5mp camera. But that's not enough to convince me to buy one when it has a UK release date on 12/02/2012....
Information is power Dudes!
No Radio??? This might be a deal breaker. Hope they fix this b4 release.
Hi Bought Garmin/Asus A10 2 years ago,
Great phone/ Magic GPS not totally AGPS,
Android 2.1 and Limited Support for Android&GPS Maps,
Recently replaced battery and hope Phone Doesn't Fail.
Bought Samsung Tablet 10.1V, been sold down the river,
by Vodafone&Samsung regarding Android Updates.
Unless "Jonney Shih" can promise 2/3 years unconditional support for Android & GPS,
WILL NOT BE BUYING
Personally, while this is such a good innovation, I will still wait for the tegra 4 tablets. They will have full hd screen resolution, extreme hd video recording, the tegra chip itself will have an 8 core processor and upto 64 cuda core GPU. As you can imagine these tablets will be amazing and the graphics will be on a par with the very latest ps3 games like Battlefield 3. These tablets will go on sale Q3/Q4 2012, so they are not going to be far away.
By the way the tegra 5 tablets will be 5 times more powerful than the tegra 4 and the tegra 6 tablets will have twice the power of the tegra 5 tablets, which will be coming in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
the Tablet portion is simply a big arse screen and extended battery. all hardware functions storage etc are all in the phone device. think of it as a battery dock/screen
Just thought I would let people know that after doing a google search on this product I can confirm that this padfone will have a tegra 3 chip, so it will be on a par with the transformer prime.
it makes no sense for the phone to have buttons in the picture as for the padfone to actually work, both machines will have to be running ice cream sandwich. it would be better if the tab worked without the phone but it probably won't.
