Asus Padfone and TF700 set for Australian launch in July

Asus Australia have taken to their Facebook page to hint at an eta for the forthcoming Transformer Pad TF700 tablet, and the tablet-phone-laptop combined Padfone. Following the launch at MWC in Barcelona, there are eager customers waiting around the world to get their hands on these devices. There isn't much to go on, but according to Asus both devices can be expected in July. 

There is also no indication on a potential price point for either device, but you would expect it to be towards the more 'premium' end of the price scale. The Padfone in particular is an interesting concept, but one which could be massively let down if the price is too high when all the accessories are taken into account. 

The TF700 is no slouch either, packing a full HD Super IPS+ display at a 1920x1200 resolution over either a Tegra 3, or a Snapdragon S4 processor. Oh, and there's Asus' signature keyboard dock as well. Price will again play a part in the success of the TF700 -- and not just in Australia -- but on specs alone, it's a winner.
