Looks nice but I don't like bulkiness so hopefully the back of the tablet where the phone goes isn't that much of a bother. The front side of the phone looks appealing but the back side seriously needs some help.

Would any of you buy the Padfone?

I saw this on Engadget and I like what they're doing with the new design. I think that it's somewhat interesting and if it is priced right it will sell more than the Atrix dock did.

I won't be getting one but it will stay on my radar.

One more Android

ASUS is great in Tablet device the two transformers is example of this, but in smartphone is other story, ASUS create new Android mobile but the market have many phones goods bads the perfect formula is TABLET great jobs in this, phone come on Samsung is the Best next Motorola and SE in this time, ASUS is late.

I like the way it looks. I've become a fan of Asus over the past couple years and support them finally making a phone. I just hope they don't release too many versions of the same phone (Galaxy-series, anyone?)

    Here is the new Padfone plus a couple other new products

    The Padfone looks interesting but no real specs as of yet

    or here is their promo link

    Check it out
    Just a quick heads up that i'm in the process of creating one of my 'Superboot' auto-root images for the Padfone 2 (it's already working!), then i'll do a tweaked ROM. I'll be posting them both here and in the new MoDaCo Padfone 2 forum.

    And here it is.

    Superboot for the Padfone 2!


    i talked to asus sweden on facebook, they told me that microHDMI to TV should not be any problems. They told me that the microHDMI cable is the problem.

    Because of the design of the phone the HDMI cable is not getting to the bottom of the microHDMI hole, so hey said i could try to cut away a little of plastic from the microHDMI cable so it get longer into the connector on the padfone.

    can anyone confirm this?

    im getting my padfone tonight :D so i'll try it then if i manage to get a microHDMI to HDMI cable.

    i dont know hot deep the connector input on the phone is, but im guessing is should be enough to cut away 2-3mm of the plastic around the cable so the connector get the whole way in :p

    It's like trying to get to wonderland with only putting the key to the door halfway in.

    I just modify a way to root Padfone 4.0.4 without lost data.

    You need download 3 firmware file (1 full firmware CHT-PadFone- and 2 OTA firmware Firmware to, Firmware to

    Take it here: (this file must be extract and copy zip file under ASUS folder)
    AND OTA firmware:

    Copy 3 zip file to a SD Card, put SD Card to your phone.

    Enable setting first:
    "Settings > Applications > Unknown Sources"
    "Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging"
    "Settings > Security > Unknown Sources"
    "Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging"

    Go to recovery and install CHT-PadFone- then boot, while your phone booting put your phone to pc usb and run RootDebugfs.bat and chose steep Root. When you receive mes "Keep here, install 2 OTA Firmware at recovery. Once 2 OTA Firmware install completed and your devices has finished restarting".

    Keep it here and keep usb pc connected padfone. Go to recovery and install 2 OTA (install at one Firmware to first, then Firmware to, don't need reboot). After install completed, reboot and complete step at root cmd on your PC.

    All done!

    If got error on root chmod script, try it by your self: Run CMD, type "adb shell" enter, then type list command bellow:

    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p21 /system
    chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
    rm /data/local/tmp
    mv /data/local/tmp.bak /data/local/tmp
    rm /data/local/su
    rm /data/local/debugfs
    rm /data/local/debugfsinput


    Thanks to sparkym3 for root tools:
