We're live today from ASUS' North American launch (1 p.m. EDT)

We're coming at you live today from Gotham Hall in New York City, where ASUS is launching the Zenfone 2 in North America. This is a surprisingly capable smartphone given its price point, and it's definitely going to be one to look out for if you're in the market for something off-contract.

So ASUS execs are on hand today, we're here with bells on, and we've brought 30 lucky Android Central readers to experience the madness that is a smartphone launch. And you're coming along for the ride as well. Join us for the liveblog at 1 p.m EDT — that's 10 a.m. on the west coast, and 6 p.m in London — as we get this thing done!

App users, we apologize as the the liveblog won't be visible inside our app at this time.
