ASUS, due midyear. As both a tablet and a phone, ASUS has cre­ated a new cat­e­gory with its Pad­Fone. Now, the Pad­Fone In­fin­ity is of­fer­ing both a big­ger, bet­ter screen and more pow­er­ful hard­ware. The smart­phone at the cen­tre of the Pad­Fone is a five-inch Google An­droid de­vice that uses a 1.7GHz quad-core chip and a speedy 4G mo­bile in­ter­net con­nec­tion, and of­fers 64GB stor­age as well as a 13-megapixel rear cam­era. It docks into and runs a tablet body, the Pad­Fone In­fin­ity Sta­tion, with apps be­ing re­sized to fit its 10.1-inch screen. The ex­tra power, full high­def­i­ni­tion phone screen and at­trac­tion of hav­ing one in­ter­net con­nec­tion for two gad­gets could make it a hit.
