ASUS MWC teasers again hint at Padfone, high-resolution tablet

ASUS has teased the long-awaited Padfone (not the first time it's done so), as well as the high-resolution TF701 Transformer Prime, in its first two pre-MWC promo videos. The first, entitled "divided we stand, together we rock," clearly hints at the Padfone's "phone within a tablet" functionality, allowing users to plug the smartphone into the tablet dock for a larger-screen experience.

The second tells us that with "twice the detail" comes "twice the fun", and shows a box being filled with lots of small rubber balls which, like smaller pixels, make for a sharper image. The TF701 is expected to build on the original Transformer Prime's specs with a higher resolution 1920x1200 display.

We've got both videos after the break, and we'll be covering ASUS's presser live next Monday from Barcelona.

  • Can't wait for the padfone!
  • Hopefully the padfone is also high res
  • Cant wait for the TF701. Hopefully it doesn't have the wifi problems the 201 has.
  • In the first video they say 1+1+1=Endless Possibilities.
    1 (phone) + 1 (tablet) + 1 (?? Lapdock?) How sweet would that be.
  • That's the Prime with cellular capabilities, so that would be awesome! Maybe it means Phone + SIM Card + tablet?
  • I would much rather havr ASUS fix the reboot problem with the Prime before they do anything else!
  • 1280x800x2 = can only dream
  • This is the first I've heard of the Prime HD...what a slap in the face to early adopters.
  • ASUS is always innovating! (no pun intended)
