Smartphone

Asus didn't provide a lot of details about the Padfone, but the phone portion of the product should offer a 4.3-inch touch screen. The company also hinted that it would run Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

Tablet

When the smartphone's 4.3-inch isn't enough or when you're running low on battery, you can dock the handset into the tablet. The latter offers a larger 10.1-inch screen with built-in speakers and serves as another battery source. However, similar to the Motorola Atrix 4G and its laptop dock, all the processing power and content come from the smartphone.
