Essential Guide to Tablets – Asus Padfone 2

Asus Padfone 2, £650, (32GB)

For those looking for something different, the Padfone 2 comes in two distinct parts: a 4.7in Android smartphone (complete with a 13MP Sony-made camera), and a 10.1in display that the phone slots directly into the back of, effectively turning the two separate elements into a single tablet. While the phone itself gets a 720p HD display, the resolution of the tablet screen is pegged at 1280 x 800. Connectivity is also limited to the dock’s proprietary 13-pin connector, and while it’s possible to attach a standard Micro-USB cable to this in order to charge the tablet and manage data, the connection is reportedly a bit loose.


OS: Android 4.0
Screen Size/Aspect: 10.1in, 16:10
Resolution: 1280 x 800 pixels (149ppi)
Pros: Innovative, Good quality cameraphone
Cons: Connectivity isn’t great, tablet display
