One of the members on our forums reported that Asus Finland posted about some Padfone 2 accessories on their facebook page. But no-one seems to know where and when they will be available.

In a reply to Padfone Club, Asus Taiwan told us that these accessories should be available by next month in Taiwan, and that they can be purchased in their Service Centers.

They couldn't tell any exact dates, and also said that the release dates for other countries are different. But we think they can be expected soon after.

Asus Taiwan wrote ...

You can buy in Taiwan service center.
Padfone2 Accessories selling time are different in each country.

Padfone Club: What's Happening Update   
Author Marc Schattorie Friday 18 January 2013 - 17:14:09 Comments: 3   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
It has been pretty quiet on our news page for about a month now, but don't worry, we're still working hard for the community. This post contains some of the highlights that couldn't make the news page on their own.

Today another OTA update was released for Padfone 2's with the TW SKU, the new firmware version is 10.4.11.13. It is said that it should improve system stability. A changelog is not available yet. We suggest to follow this forum thread for more information.

Yesterday, several news sites reported that Asus might be working on a Windows 8/Windows RT Padfone. Back in October, even before the Padfone 2 announcement we reported this already, but it was not very clear. This time someone from Asus reported that Asus is working on such a device to Wall Street Journal.

The first generation Padfone is not forgotten by Asus, the Jelly Bean update should be released somewhere in February, so stay tuned!

Padfone Club did also get some minor updates. We improved our DDS List and added a search feature to allow you to search the entire website.

Some of you might have noticed the last poll, the question was "What about a Padfone Wiki?".

The idea was started by the Padfone Club admins, and we thought that it would be a good idea to give it a shot.

38.4% of the voters voted for the first option "I would love to contribute to a Padfone Wiki!". 58.4% voted that they would like to have a Wiki page to get more information about this Padfone devices. The remaining 3.2% voted for "It's a stupid idea!". Lets prove them that they were wrong and lets make this Wiki a great place for everyone who is interested in the Padfone devices.

We've added a link to the Wiki in our main menu, but you can also reach it directly by visiting http://www.padfonewiki.org

We're working hard to fill the Wiki with all the information that we got, but the Wiki is most dependent on you!

App to assign different Phone or Pad launchers   
Author Marc Schattorie Monday 19 November 2012 - 18:25:41 Comments: 1   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
A Taiwanese developer created an app to allow Padfone users to assign different launchers for Phone and Pad mode.

The app is pretty simple, when you start it, you have the choice to assign any installed launcher to either the Padfone, or the Padfone Station.

The app should work on both, the Padfone and the Padfone 2. No root is required to use this app, but you have to make sure that it is checked in the Dynamic Display Switching (DDS) List.

Download in the Google Play Store

And discuss it here!

Update, November 25:
The developer updated the Padfone Launcher Switcher today and a lot of the reported issues seem to be solved. The app is now a launcher itself and has to be set as the default launcher. After this is done, the app will handle the switching between your two preferred launchers.
