ASUS have unveiled their superhero-like Padfone at Mobile World Congress, and what a phone it is. ASUS' Padfone sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, Snapdragon's new dual-core S4 processor, an Adreno 225 GPU, Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, an 8-megapixel rear-facing with an LED flash and f/2.2, autofocusing lens.

This is all backed up with between 16 and 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD cards, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, GPS, A-GPS, a gyroscope, 1,520mAh battery and a compass. Connectivity-wise we're looking at WCDMA (900, 2100MHz), EDGE/GPRS/GSM (850, 1800 and 1900MHz) and HSPA+, with theoretical download speeds of 42Mbps.

 

This all slides into a beautiful 9.2mm frame, and that's not all. Apart from a set of steak knives, it does everything, including the near-exclusive way of sliding into a tablet-like device. This will let you use the device like a 10.1-inch tablet, and also extends the battery by, oh, just 9-fold. Yes, 9-fold. ASUS will also be selling a keyboard dock, so you can slide that 10-inch phone-tablet into an actual physical keyboard. In the shot above, you can also see a stylus. Say what!

 

ASUS, hey, you know, slow down. You release your first phone and you just throw everything but the kitchen sink in. Kinda cool, and I love it.
