Asus has teamed up with Carphone Warehouse to promote its excellent Padfone 2 smartphone, which cleverly converts into a tablet thanks to a nifty dock. The partnership means the Padfone 2 will be shown off on stands in stores across the UK from this week, with staff demonstrating its unique transforming feature. Customers will also get the chance to try out the Padfone 2 for themselves.
Account Director Anand Unadkat expressed how Asus is a world leading manufacturer of tablets and motherboards, but is now ready to expand into the smartphone market.
“We understand that we are entering a competitive industry with big players,” said Anand. “However, the Padfone 2 is a unique device that allows customers to experience both a powerful 4.7” Android smartphone combined with a 10.1” tablet docking station. Innovation and design will always be at the core of ASUS, and the Padfone 2 underlines our position as the world’s leader in bringing innovative converged devices to market.”
If you’re after a tablet that can connect to the Internet via 3G, but don’t want to stump up for an extra data plan, the Asus Padfone 2 is a great option. If you’re interested, head over to your nearest Carphone Warehouse for a play.
