Padfone – Is it Worth to Join the Smartphone and Tablet?

The ASUS is very well-known company in the field of technology, has released an interesting product. The so-called Padfone, it’s a technological experience that attempts to innovate in the integration of devices that are part of our day-to-day: the tablet and the smartphone. Watching some videos with the technology, and following the evolution of the concept of Padfone by ASUS, I was able to form an opinion that is more concrete on this mix.

What is the Padfone from ASUS?.

The Padfone is a phone and a tablet. The difference is that the tablet is just a bigger screen, in which the phone needs to be connected to work. In other words, you have the option to increase the screen of your device by putting in a “case” tablet in it. That would be the equivalent of connecting a notebook to a larger screen, a television set, for example.

What are the advantages of the Padfone?

The main advantage of the product is that you will only have one device to keep up to date. It is less time configuring, installing and uninstalling applications, modifying configuration settings, personal, etc. When you need a larger screen for your smartphone, you may continue with the same apps on your phone, with all the benefits of the larger screen. The technology used by the Padfone is called Dynamic Display, and in the video below you can see how it works on the device of the ASUS.

It is worth noting that the video above is promotional, which means that not always is the experience of the video that the product can deliver. The other video below is not promotional, but rather a “hands-on” in that a Padfone is tested and assessed quickly by a specialist in technology. Note that it has a keyboard as an accessory, which does not come with the “basic kit” of the Padfone, and must be purchased separately.

It seems quite practical in this type of product, but the video is an impression that the tablet is much heavier than an iPad. With so many devices today with the mirroring of the screens, applications that run on more than one device at the same time, I wonder if the Padfone is even a differential or a marketing ploy.

What do you think of this idea? Would buy you a Padfone? Would not be the type of electronic that would be the biggest part of the time saved in the drawer?
