MWC 2012: The Asus PadFone officially official

Asus, at MWC 2012, has officially unveiled the market-ready Asus PadFone, the device that's a smartphone with a tablet-dock. The Taiwan-based computer giant has changed the design of the PadFoe, probably because the original design is just annoying to look at. The tabler-dock, unfortunately, looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. I've read Asus' press release, which you can do too after the break, and according to my understanding, the PadFone is the smartphone while the tablet is the smartphone's tablet-dock. The tablet-dock gives you the resource of having an extra battery in a tablet form factor. It basically uses the smartphone for the CPU and whatnots that Android needs to run properly. Asus will be shipping the PadFone come April.
