Padfone gets firmware upgrade to version 9.20.4.34   
Author Marc Schattorie Tuesday 13 November 2012 - 17:18:38 Comments: 11   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
Asus has released a new firmware version for the first generation Padfone today. Our current CHT Padfones are now upgradable to version 9.20.4.34 (9.4.6).

There is currently no changelog available, so we can only post our own findings.

First of all, there is no Padfone Station upgrade to fix the issues from the previous Station update included.
The only change that we've noticed is that the power saving settings have been changed.

We've added the upgrade package to our firmwares page and we also updated the one time upgrade package which can be handy for rooters. The full firmware package however is not available yet.

If you found another change, or if you have any other comments about this upgrade, feel free to join us in this forum topic.

Update: The Facebook app is also working on our Padfones again.

Already a new firmware version for the Asus Padfone 2   
Author Marc Schattorie Saturday 03 November 2012 - 19:31:58 Comments: 1   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
We're very sorry for this late post, but Asus does not want to support this leading Padfone community, which means that we can't always be on top of the Padfone 2 like we do with the Padfone 1, but we will try our best!

On to the news. The Padfone 2 is now able to ugrade to firmware version 9.8.8.41(TW) or firmware version 9.8.8.40(CHT). As you can see, there are two different regions available for Taiwanese Padfone 2s, Taiwan and Chung Hwa Telecom (a large Taiwanese telecom provider).
Both versions have a minor difference in the version number, but both share the same changelog which you can read by clicking on "more...".

The firmware version can be downloaded from the official Asus website.

Update: We've also created a new Padfone 2 Firmwares (How To/Download) page to keep track of all the firmware upgrades for the Padfone 2.

Important Update: Minor Padfone Station firmware update   
Author Marc Schattorie Friday 26 October 2012 - 08:54:11 Comments: 12   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
One of our members pointed out that there is a new Padfone Station firmware update available on the Asus website. You can find the APK file under the Utilities section.

It upgrades the Padfone Station firmware from version 35 to version 38, and it should improve the display quality for the Padfone Station.

Please take note!
When using the APK file, do not remove the Padfone from the Padfone Station, it will damage the Padfone if you do.
Also, make sure to update your Padfones firmware to V9.20..1.x or later.

Important Update:
Some people seem to have issues with this update, please take this in mind before you use this update!

So we have some brilliant thoughts about the next Padfone.

Now here's a challenge, we would like to see how good these engines look in a new chassis. Pictures always speaks more than words. We would like to call on creative people out there to take on this challenge! Design a Padfone of your own and submit your drawing, sketches or even a video to visualise how you want your future Padfones to look like to us. We will put it up on the news page and who knows, Asus might just pick up your design! Pack in those amazing specifications. Maybe a new colour? Bigger screen ratio? Just don't forget the keyboard dock.

All designs can be submitted to design©padfoneclub.com. Make sure you include a description of your designs and contact details too. You are allowed to stamp your initials across the designs for copyright purposes, as long as we all can see that amazing design of yours.

And here's a white keyboard dock to kick start things:

Free Battery Pack for Padfone 2   
Author ctys2ard Monday 22 October 2012 - 20:45:21 Comments: 3   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 

Asus Taiwan has just announced that customers who order their Padfone from Taiwan (through official Telcos such as Chung Hwa Telcom) before 18th November will get a special battery pack for free.

There is minimal information that we know of the battery pack. It's branded Mega King and sports a 6600 mAh as depicted. It's available in white. The RRP is at NTD 1990 or about €50.

Knowing that the Asus Padfone 2 has no removable cover/battery, this could well be a good replacement for people who are always on the move. Asus really knows how to pull the trick with its customers. Well, almost, except that there is no keyboard dock for Padfone 2 .

There is a lot of speculation, is the Padfone 2 going to get a Station Dock or not?

According to Asus Taiwan it is not possible to make a keyboard dock for the Padfone 2. But "they will take our advice to the next Padfone".
