Our friends at Mobile Geeks were at a special event in Taiwan hosted by ASUS, where the Taiwanese giant showed off its PadFone Mini smartphone, which is a smaller version of its 10-inch PadFone Infinity.



The ASUS PadFone Mini has a 4.3-inch Super IPS display with a 960x540 resolution, the 1.4GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal flash storage which is expandable to 64GB through microSD, a 1500mAh battery, and weighs just 105g. Of course, there's a dock it can slide into, which sports a 7-inch 1280x800 display, adds another 2200mAh battery, and itself weighs 310g.




ASUS will be pricing the PadFone Mini at around $400, which is Nexus 5 territory. But, this price is for the smartphone, and the dock - which is a surprisingly good price from ASUS.
