The new ASUS PadFone Mini features a 4-inch smartphone that transforms into a 7-inch tablet. The ASUS PadFone Mini packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, an 8GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot with up to 64GB support.

The PadFone Mini’s 4-inch smartphone has an 800 x 480 pixel resolution while the 7-inch tablet has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Both displays use IPS+ (in-plane switching), providing clearer and sharper images and better viewing angles.

    I notice prices are almost always missing, they add a different depth to these tech articles. Would help if future gadgets introductions here would at least give a hint of how much they are (or might cost)

    • Hi, thanks for the comment… only indicated on our zenfone post that asus has yet to announce the local pricing and availability of the new products. We’ll keep you guys updated for sure. :)

      Announcements of new products don’t always include price, especially in tech fair events such as CES or MWC.
