In addition to announcing the ultrathin UX and Eee PC X101, Asus showed off a new product called the Padfone at Computex that combines the power of a smartphone with a tablet.
Similar in concept to the laptop dock for the Motorola Atrix 4G, the Padfone consists of a 4.3-inch Android smartphone that can be used alone or docked in a tablet. The latter provides a larger 10.1-inch screen with speakers and acts as an extended battery, but the processing power, Internet connection, and content all come from the smartphone.
Asus didn't offer up many more details about the Padfone, but according to Engadget Mobile, the company dropped some clues to indicate that it would run Ice Cream Sandwich and hopes to ship by Christmas.
