Are you excited about the ASUS Padfone? You may have been green with envy when the Padfone was announced to be released in Taiwan this month. But you don’t need to wait longer if you live in Europe. ASUS has finally announced that they will release their ASUS Padfone in Italy in May. This means that the device will break into European territory earlier than you have expected. They also said that the device will sell for €699. That’s not bad considering that it is a lot of gadgets rolled into one.
One of the things that you will notice is that it is a tablet and smartphone in one. It can also be transformed into a laptop by simply attaching a keyboard dock that costs around €149. It is one of its kind and this is why a lot of people are waiting for its release. Unfortunately, there is no news concerning the release on the US. We will just keep you updated on that one. In my opinion, you are better off traveling to Europe. After all, US prices will always depend on the carriers. Buying it there will significantly lower the model’s prices. That is if you just want to test it out.
If you think that it is too expensive, all I can say that the price is the same as in Taiwan. Sure €699 is not easy to churn out considering it is $920 when converted. And that is only for the 3G version. The LTE-enabled version is said to hit European territories in September.
Aside from the ASUS Padfone, there are also other gadgets breaking into European territory. There is the Transformer Pad 300 and the Transformer Pad 700 Infinity. The Pad will be available in May for €399 with the 64GB model will be released in June for €599 and the LTE version coming in the future.
