Asus unveils wacky PadFone 2 hybrid device
If you thought the Galaxy Note II pushes design boundaries, take a gander at the new PadFone 2 from Asus. A thinner version of the first PadFone, this device also morphs from tablet and smartphone on the fly.
Now chances are the Asus PadFone 2 will never hit American shores since the original PadFone didn't either. Perhaps that's why Asus, long-time laptop builder and maker of Google's hot little Nexus 7 tablet, decided to unveil the PadFone 2 in Milan. Of course the it could also have selected the fashionable location as a savvy PR move to emphasize the device's futuristic design.
