Asus launching Padfone Mini in Taiwan on December 11
Asus is launching a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/299927==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/26/tablet.serves.as.phone.dock/" rel='nofollow'>smaller version</a> of its combinable smartphone and tablet-dock device range in the very near future. Invitations have been sent out to the media for a launch event in Taiwan on Wednesday, 11th of December, with the invitation naming the Padfone Mini outright as the device being shown off by the company. <br />

The new Padfone Mini is believed to use a seven-inch tablet dock, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/299924==http://www.engadget.com/2013/12/05/asus-padfone-mini-global-certification/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Engadget</em>, one which the smartphone would slide into as before, but this time attaching from a portrait orientation rather than landscape. The base Android 4.3 smartphone powering it is thought to have a 4.3-inch, 960x540-resolution display, with the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor being used to drive the larger display. Connectivity over 4G LTE will apparently not be offered on the device, with a recent Global Certification Forum <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/299925==http://member.globalcertificationforum.org//Application/onlinecertification/terminalinfo/?terminalId=4165" rel='nofollow'>listing</a> showing just 3G radios. <br />
<br />
Though the full specifications, release date and pricing have yet to be revealed by Asus, the fact that it is a smaller version of the smartphone and tablet dock combination will bring the price down. The updated <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/299926==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/17/faster.processor.lower.storage.capacity.microsd.sl ot.in.new.model/" rel='nofollow'>PadFone Infinity</a> shipped for approximately $640 for the smartphone element alone, with the 10.1-inch dock costing an extra $240.
