The Taiwan-based tech conglomerate Asus has already proved themselves in the hybrid gadget technology withe the launch of its unique one-of-a-kind device Asus Padfone last year. The innovative concept firm is now all set t ohit the market with the successor of the the device -- Asus Padfone 2. Following the marketing and promotion of the device, the company released a video showcasing the design and functionalities of Asus Padfone 2. The demo of the product in the video has been presented by none other than Asus CEO Jerry Shen. The video has been released by Bloomberg India.
The video also gives hints about the upcoming Windows 8 devices by the company including Asus Taichi which is comprised of two screens. The device was shown to be functioning as both laptop and tablet.
Asus is betting high with Asus Padfone 2. The video has also brought an end to the rumours surrounding the screen display size of the device. It has been confirmed that the device will be shipping with 4.7 inch HD display.
As rumoured earlier, it will also feature a 13 mega pixel rear camera that can be used for capturing high-definition images with better quality and clarity. The device runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system that features an improved user interface and navigation controls compared to its predecessor Android 4.0 ICS.
The video shows Asus Padfone 2 featuring a quad-core processor designed for providing faster computations and quicker response. The presence of LTE capability is also another major attraction of this device. The device has been designed thinner compared to its predecessor model. The tablet dock too has been designed thinner. Certain images of Asus Padfone 2 have also started to leak in addition to the video.
There is still no information regarding the pricing and the exact date of availability of this device. Sources suggest that the company will unveil the new device on October 16. It remains to be seen whether these rumours about the release date is true.
Well, having a look at the recent video demo of the Asus Pafdone 2, it definitely looks beautiful and swift enough to compete with the iOS and Android devices prevailing in the market. Thus, it's quite relevant that instead of building a phone to beat Apple's iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2, say for instance even a tablet to beat Apple's new iPad, or an ultrabook to contest with the MacBook Air or other hot selling laptop brands in the market, Asus is smartly prepping to built one device to give a stiff competition to all major brands in the categories at the same time.
