Asus unveils new Padfone product which combines a tablet with a 3G mobile smartphone
(Best Syndication News) Asus unveiled their Padfone at the Computex 2011 Taipei, Tawian tradeshow. The Padfone is a tablet that has docking for a mobile smartphone. By sharing two devices, a person can use just the mobile phone when they want, and use the tablet with the phone plugged into gain 3G speed Internet service and a larger screen display. The two devices also would be able to share information.
Asus explained the reason for combining the mobile phone with a tablet was to meet the needs of the users. Often the mobile phone screen is too small to see. The tablets can lack a good connection to the Internet. By using the mobile phone's 3G network, they can connect easier to the World Wide Web. The mobile phone screen can then enlarge with the use of the tablet. In addition, the data stays with the mobile phone, so you will not have to worry about synchronizing up information between devices.
There are two battery sources, one for the mobile phone and one for the tablet. If the mobile phone is running low on batteries, just plug it into the tablet and you can use the second battery source built in the tablet.
Tablet PC systems are finally starting to catch on, but how to integrate them into being used every day is the challenge. Overcoming this obstacle will help to determine if tablets will stick around for the long term. With Wi-Fi access being easy to get at home, and mobile Internet keeping people connected away from home, the Asus Padfone just might be able to lead the tablet marketplace.
