The long expected launch event of the Padfone 2finally took place today in Taiwan and Italy. Now we finally know what this second generation Padfoen is all about.

A lot of things that we pretty much already knew got confirmed. Like the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Quad Core CPU which has a clock speed of 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and the fact that it does support LTE (700/800/1800/2600MHz). It was also confirmed that the Padfone itself will have a Super IPS+ screen which has a resolution of 1280×800, it's a surprise that it supports a resistive touch screen isntead of the usual capacitive touch screen, luckely the touch screen is not a resistive screen, it is a capacative touch screen. It seems like the information on the Asus Padfone 2 page was not accurate...

Update: Get ready for the Padfone 2 launch event live stream!   
Author Marc Schattorie Tuesday 09 October 2012 - 17:05:24 Comments: 9   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
According to the official Asus Padfone 2 page the launch event of the Padfone 2 will be broadcasted live from this page at October 16 at 11am (Milan, UTC +2).

It's expected that the Padfone 2 will be released short after this launch event. We will keep you up-to-date if we know more!

If you look at the teasers on the page it seems like the Padfone Station will be changed, and it looks like it's going to be thinner than the current Padfone Station.

Also, Asus Taiwan has changed their cover photo on their facebook page, so it looks like Asus is really expecting a lot from this event/device.

On October 16, just before the launch event, we will open our Padfone 2 forums so that everyone can discuss about this new device!

Update: One of our users tipped is that Asus Poland posted about the Padfone 2 on their facebook page. They say that it will be available in Poland in December. Keep checking this post for minor updates about the Padfone 2!

A lot of news is pouring in lately. Padfone 2 announcement, possible Padfone 2 release in The Benelux, Padfone 3 information. And now we have word from Asus Malaysia about the release of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on our Padfones.
According to them, the Jelly Bean update is scheduled to begin in late December for Taiwanese (CHT) Padfones. Asus doesn't mention a date for the World Wide release of Jelly Bean, but this will probably be somewhere in January.

Padfone 2 still not announced, already news about Padfone 3?   
Author Marc Schattorie Sunday 23 September 2012 - 13:19:21 Comments: 2   printer friendly  create pdf of this news item 
A couple days ago we got official word of the announcement of the Padfoen 2 on October 16th. Today we have information about the Padfone 3.

According to a user on our forum a Taiwanese newspaper reported that the CEO of Asus (Jerry Shen) mentioned the Padfone 3.

Usually we are very careful with posting things like this, but this time there could be a possible truth factor in this story.
According to the article, Asus wants to support Windows Phone 8 with the Padfone 3(?). The Padfone 3 is currently in development. It will of course also rely on high end specifications and is expected to be released by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
