    How cost efficient really?

    I think ASUS makes the best tablets, I really do. I had a TF101 before, sold it because I wasn't feeling into tablets after a while. My question though is with the padfone. I pay for a smartphone w/unlimited data, and Verizon phone service for $71 a month. That's 852 a year. Now, if I...

    A Question, a Tip and a Warning

    Question: I have had my PadFone for just 3 days and can't seem to find where I can change the devices name. For example, if it picks-up a DHCP assigned IP Address it shows the name in the DHCP Server as "android-" followed by a 16 digit HEX number. Where is this name set? This name is also...

    Problems getting "Tablet" apps for PadFone?

    Hi Anyone know how to tell Google Play that the PadFone's both a phone and a tablet (or at least get it to ignore it?)? Wanted to install a 'HD"-ie tablet-version of an Office programme for use when docked - but the app was "not compatible with any of my devices". Keen to hear of any...

    Just bought mine!

    and I should have it in a week or so. I bought via Funny_Bom on eBay. I did a BIN/OBO and saved quite abit and they offered free extra battery as part of the final offer. I bought a package that has the phone/pad/pen/keyboard set up.

    I'm getting the padfone soon.

    I was going to order a new MacBook air but I think I'm going to wait for the Acer s7 and get a padfone. Getting both of those will be close to the cost of the MBA I spec'ed out. Also looking at the nexus 7. I think I will have a pretty sick setup with these products. The padfone is a great...

    This is What I'm Waiting For

    Despite the clunky name, the concept of a phone that docks into a dummy tablet is fantastic. One data plan for two devices - that's how it ought to be, especially since the carriers are switching to a limited data model.
