Compared to padfone1, this is 2 steps back... they've remove the mircoSD slot, and don't have keyboard dock option,.
I can no longer pretend to be taking notes in meeting,
plug/play or copy from/to my USB/SD cards,
lying down watching a video from my chest..
Docking/charging my phone to keyboard at my desk.
Pricing it so high, not listening to feedback, lousy customer service, not wonder its ranking dropped as fast as appeared...
Waiting for someone else to debut similar combi device, that would hot up this battleground..
AnonD-78383, 08 Apr 2013I highly doubt they would include a keyboard dock it was never mentioned in the announcement they said they will go with a bluetooth keyboard for this one
Samsung S4, 17 Mar 2013what is this,Asus PadFone Infinity price 1000euro for this phone it's a bullshit, 600euro it's... moreYes,! I agree, why they place the expensive price bullshit. Why not just around $600 - $700.

Front upper face %100 copy from Iphone 4th generation. Be creative Asus.

Why does not Asus announce firm release dates, e.g. UK?
They said Padfone Infinity will be released in April but weeks later there is still no news when competition has released their premiere products like Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, LG and Samsung GS $ on the way.
Last time they said December for Padfone2 release in UK and there was no release or update even in March!
Asus is not doing themselves a justice with their ridiculous and inconsistent pricing and release schedule.
I've been using padfone 2 for the last 4 months it is by far the best android phone available. The pad makes it even better. Stopped carrying a laptop. Will skip the infinite but will definitely upgrade on the next release.
Asus should stop insulting people's intelligence if they want customers to reward their innovation.
They say this padfone concept will save cost on almost all components e.g. processor, memory, storage, 3G/LTE chip etc.
Yet they price it higher that top end phone and tablet put together. Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 can be bought for £550.
For Padfone Infinity to have any chance of success, it should be priced under £500.
And of course it should be released soon not months later.
I seriously doubt this phone can rely on the tablet gimmick as a key selling point. I believe the only effective KSP would be to have a tablet WITH KEYBOARD DOCK. You need a KEYBOARD DOCK to make the tablet a useful tool as opposed to merely a toilet device.
So please do not do what you did with the padfone 2 and fail to produce a keyboard dock.
damn, almost perfect device, NO MEMORY CARD SLOT simply ruin it!
one big mistake Asus!
How can I get this Asus PadFone Infinity in Philippines? I really want this phone :))
I hope Asus gets the actual release date and price right unlike they did with Padfone2.
This unremovable battery and no micro SD card expansion is ridiculous. Battery is not usually covered by warranty and loses 25-30% of capacity after first year and around 50% after second year. Manufacturers are acting in cordination to force people to buy a new product effective every two years because of battery.
Regulators should fine these manufacturers and stop this plot.
Meanwhile any clevery manufacturer would use replaceable battery and micro SD expansion slot as differentiator and market heavily on that.
currently using Galaxy Tab &plus , it's too big for 1 palm. i think the perfect size will be not exceed 105mm. its exactly reduce 1 size black bar. that will make me firmly hold the device as a tab phone.
