Asus PadFone Infinity

Those looking to get their hands on the successor to the Asus PadFone 2 will have their wish granted very soon. The much-awaited Padfone Infinity is slated to be out in Singapore on June 1 from M1 and StarHub as well as authorised dealers in time for the upcoming PC Show 2013.

There are a lot of things to like when it comes to the Infinity, a phone that can be slotted into a dock to turn into a tablet. What’s impressive are the gorgeous 5-inch full HD (1920 by 1080 pixels) screen, the use of the standard micro USB cable and 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.

Yet, the unique feature of the Padfone Infinity is the one-piece aerospace-grade aluminium body that measures just 6.3mm thin. The phone itself weighs a light 141g. With the dock, the combined weight is just 532g, which is similar or less than many 10-inch tablets.

The PadFone Infinity also comes with its own Asus apps such as the Asus Story for those looking to organise photos in a virtual photobook and the improved Supernote 3.1, for note taking and drawing.

For those who are avid snappers, the Infinity comes with a 13-megapixel camera armed with an f2.0, five-element lens for increased light capturing capability. The smartphone can output Full HD 1080p video via its micro USB-compatible MyDP port.

The PadFone Infinity will cost S$898 for the 32GB version and S$998 for the 64GB one. To turn the phone into a 10.1-inch tablet, the optional docking station will cost you another S$368.

      That’s good to hear. This one seems like a no-compromise option with both big and small screens in Full HD. Inevitably, the price has gone up as well! Do share with you what you think of the unit when you’ve got a chance to check it out. :)
