COMPUTEX Taipei 2011: ASUS! They've done it, something truly original in a market full of products that are so similar it's hard to choose between them. The ASUS PadFone consists of an Android-powered smartphone and tablet to dock the smartphone with. When the phone is 'docked', the tablet is able to be closed and the phone is then not visible.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
