ASUS today announced PadFone Infinity, an LTE smartphone with a metallic design and a 5-inch Full HD display that becomes a 10.1-inch tablet when docked to its companion PadFone Infinity Station. PadFone Infinity features Android 4.2, next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with quad-core CPU and up to 19 hours of 3G talk time. Here's more info:
The 5-inch screen features a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution with 441 pip, 64GB of storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz processor with quad-core CPU, LTE and 42Mbit/s DC-HSPA+ network support.
ASUS PadFone Infinity also has a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 five-element lens that captures up to 100 sequential photos at eight frames-per-second, while simultaneously recording 1080p Full HD video. PadFone Infinity can also output 1080p Full HD video via its Micro-USB-compatible MyDP port.
The unique two-in-one nature of ASUS PadFone removes the tedious need to synchronize data between smartphone and tablet. Data and settings on PadFone Infinity are available instantly on PadFone Infinity Station upon docking and running apps are smoothly reformatted to fit the larger display. Mobile data bills are also reduced, since a single data plan can be shared between both devices.
PadFone Infinity comes with new and exclusive ASUS apps, including SuperNote 3.1 for note taking, Story for creating stunning photo albums and ASUS Echo for voice control of PadFone Infinity.
PadFone Infinity has up to 19 hours of 3G talk time, which increases to up to 40 hours when docked into PadFone Infinity Station. PadFone Infinity Station also has sufficient battery capacity to fully recharge the docked PadFone Infinity up to three times.
