Tablet?  Smartphone?  Why not have both!  Aaron unboxes the ASUS Padfone 2, a hybrid device (of sorts).  While the tablet portion is powered by the phone and is technically an accessory, it makes a whole lot of sense.  Why carry around a phone and tablet when you can easily attach your phone to a tablet accessory?  There's a great use case for it after a long day at work.  Plug in while on the couch, and message/email/browse the web from a larger display.

Specs include:

  • 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU
  • 4.7-inch 720p HD display
  • 13-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording
  • 2,140 mAh battery
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with ASUS UI
  • Tablet: 10.1-inch display

It's a combination that makes a lot of sense, and it would be nice to see more manufacturers take notice and provide a tablet accessory.  Stay tuned for the full review!
