ASUS PadFone official demo video launches, touting the device’s smartphone, tablet and laptop capabilities. For T3's opinion, watch our video (above)

Asus has officially released a demo video of its PadFone, a smartphone that also doubles up as a tablet (oh, and also a laptop) when plugged into the PadFone station, a tablet-like device complete with QWERTY keyboard.

 

The video can be seen via the company’s official YouTube channel (for the sake of convenience, we’ve included it below) and gives viewers a detailed glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming device.

This includes a whopping 16 hours of battery life, although that's purely for the smartphone. Juice rises to 63 hours when plugged into the PadFone and up to 102 hours when connected to the Station Dock Keyboard.

It was formally unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show back in January but officially launched at Mobile World Congress back in late February.  

The slate/blower comes packing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera for snapper-happy fanboys.

Also in the mix is a stylus which, much like the PadFone itself, doubles up as another cool accessory - a headset.

The best thing about this concept, however, is that users don’t need to shell out for two data plans - as you would with an iPhone 4S and iPad 3 - as the devices run on a single SIM.

In terms of a price, Asus isn’t saying a word, however, we’re guessing a tablet, smartphone and laptop all-in-one is going to set consumers back a few quid.

The PadFone was initially tipped for an April 2012 launch however; shortages of its Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor have been blamed for slowing down shipments, reports claim.

Overall, it’s an interesting concept but whether this particular innovation catches on remains to be seen.
