ASUS PadFone X Mini is coming to the US, priced at $200 off contract

The Intel-powered ASUS PadFone is finally coming to America, priced at $200 off contract

ASUS has enjoyed the launch of multiple of its PadFone devices in other parts of the world, especially Taiwan, but now the PadFone X Mini is making it to the US. The ASUS PadFone X Mini sports a 4.5-inch display, but docks into a larger 7-inch tablet for a unique experience.




The device will be launching in the US for $199.99 with AT&T's GoPhone plan, off contact. The $200 price tag is pretty hot, considering you get both devices - the tablet, and smartphone - but remember, the tablet doesn't work without the smartphone inside of it. Intel is the one powering the device, with its Atom Z2560 dual-core processor. We also have 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash storage, two cameras, and a microSD card slot. Software wise, we have Android 4.4 KitKat.


What makes the PadFone series of devices unique is the tablet side of the device, which doesn't just give you a bigger screen, but it provides a much longer life thanks to its additional battery. The phone on its own has around 16 hours of use, but the tablet brings over an additional 12.5 hours.
