In press conference in Taiwan earlier today, ASUS announced the availability and pricing of its phone-cum-tablet Padfone.
Unveiled back at MWC show, the ASUS Padfone Android tablet was supposed to go on sale in the US and Europe sometime this month. And guess what, they have kept their words and now the device has gone up for pre-order in Taiwan. It will go on sale in the country starting April 20th.
Priced at NT$17,990 (US$610) , while the tablet set — including that curious Bluetooth headset / stylus — will set you back NT$24,980 (around US$850). If you’re willing to pay a bit more considering a keyboard, it will cost you NT$28,901 (US$980). Don’t worry about prices, as ASUS is also offering up an extra battery for those that do.
Availability in other regions has not yet been revealed. So if you’re not put off by that pricing, we’re keeping our ears open for some global pricing from Asus in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
