Asus reveals revised PadFone Infinity with upgraded processor
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294073==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/11/teaser.video.suggests.smartphone.tablet.dock.desig n.remains.the.same/" rel='nofollow'>As teased</a> by the company last week, Asus has launched the updated version of its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294074==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/26/tablet.serves.as.phone.dock/" rel='nofollow'>PadFone Infinity</a>. The new version of the combined smartphone and dockable tablet system uses an improved quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.2GHz with 2GB of RAM, instead of the 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 used in its predecessor, as well as a few other minor changes. <br />
<br />
Storage has dropped from a choice of 32GB and 64GB capacities to 16GB and 32GB, but the new model adds a microSD card slot, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294075==http://androidcommunity.com/new-asus-padfone-infinity-unveiled-sporting-snapdragon-800-as-expected-20130917/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Android Community</em>, though the remaining specifications remain relatively similar to the original. The smartphone element uses the same 5-inch, 1080p display, 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing version, and 2,400mAh battery. Though it loses the Garmin navigation suite used in the earlier model, the operating system has been updated to Android 4.2. <br />
<br />
The optional 10.1-inch tablet dock is relatively similar to the previous model, offering a 1080p resolution and an extra battery, though owners of the original system can just use the new PadFone Infinity with the older model tablet. <br />
<br />
Available in a choice of Titanium Black and Platinum White, Asus will be shipping the PadFone Infinity smartphone in Taiwan for NT$ 18,990 ($640) and NT$20,990 ($710) for the 16GB and 32GB models, while the tablet dock will cost NT$7,000 ($240) on it's own. International shipping of the PadFone has yet to be revealed by Asus.
