This is NOT an entirely useless device because the tablet and the keyboard increases the battery life.
I think BT keyboards are useless because it will drastically drain your phone's battery.

You can buy the phone first for your self. Then the pad then the dock if you want.
3phones+2tab (if that permits)
You have a lot of option.
And you can also look for the other mobile handset if you want.
Its not good if someone buy the tab without the phone... joke... :)
This whole model as one, does not make any sense.
now days have Blue tooth key board with case retail selling for US$30 so this really is sense less models as all in one

First of all, are you buying this devices for personal and office use or for the family?
Those scenarios are actually good.
But here's the catch:
click the icon that says ONE STOP STORAGE
Note that if you read it, there is a phrase that says " So no matter which device you used last"
Then click the icon that says DYNAMICDISPLAY
another phrase that says "...PadFone to PadFone Station and vice versa."
Based on those phrases...there is a possibility that both devices can operate independently. ofcourse..this is my assumption. would be best to wait for it to come out so we would know.
lastly... click the SAVINGS icon.
Here's what it say.
When docked, the PadFone Station uses the PadFone’s 3G connection for internet access, so you only need one data plan for two devices. That translates to a whole lot of savings every year!
so you have two options:
by a phone and a tablet and get two data plans
or buy a padphone and get one data plan.

If the tab do not work independently on wi-fi, its of no use. sheer wastage.
If I took the phone with me to office, and my wife want to work on the Tab !! This can be done if I buy different gadgets.
43k(without keyboard) in INR is ok for a tab. mightr be even galaxy note 10.1 will be priced similarly. Please suggest which one will be better.
Why did I go out and buy a Galaxy Nexus lol :(, aww well I highly doubt this thing will end up in Canada anyways we never get the shiny toys!
GO ahead and buy a phone and a tablet, I'm going to buy this.
You're going to have 2 data plans, while I enjoy just one, plus mine can go up to 9x its battery life.
Plus I only have one storage, less hassle in transfering files, and most of all...can your tablet/phone have a USB/SD card interface and a real keyboard?

well you can make and recieve calls on tablet or netbook mode, why would you want to remove the phone, if you find it awkward to make and recieve calls on tablet or netbook mode.. just put in the bluetooth headset...why remove the phone?
give me a scenario.
ikkie, 05 Apr 2012True, but consider this: The package would be a very good alternative for professionals on ... moreProfessionals on the go prefer to have phone and laptop as separate devices. Trust me, I know ;)
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2012It looks like Motorola got a much better concept with their Webtop 3.0ASUS is better in updates, plus even if the motorola webtop 3.0 concept is now more functional than the atrix. ASUS has additional batteries in the Pad and dock which is the real deal.
you guys are pathetic. I will gladely buy this for 1000$ coming from a pround HTC user. this is what I call innovation. Good Asus you got me.
2x, 05 Apr 2012Why would you want to use the phone and tablet at the same time it doesnt even make sense.. if... moreI agree. Also, even if you wanted to make a phonecall, I'm pretty sure there would be a function within the tablet enabling you to make a call through the ear piece.
