Aaron goes in-depth with the ASUS PadFone 2, a unique tablet/smartphone hybrid of sorts. Available unlocked through Negri Electronics for around $800, the PadFone 2 features a smartphone that slides down into a tablet dock and powers the larger display.
It would be fantastic to get a form factor like the PadFone 2 on at least one nationwide carrier in the United States. There's a great use case here - after a long work day, popping the phone into the tablet accessory while on the couch sounds great. It could easily be an expansion to the Samsung Galaxy Note or Motorola DROID XYBOARD line of devices. Is it worth spending the money for (unlocked and unsubsidized), or are there better - and cheaper - options out there? Part 1 of 2.
