Personally, Ive never really been a fan of the Padfone. I’ve found it to be too "gimmicky", like the dual-screen phones, to have a phone that docks into a screen to use it like a tablet. Id rather have separate devices, but quite a few people are actually excited about it.
Well, bad news for you folks. Flagshipfones.co.uk is asking for a mind-boggling GBP 700 (approximately US $ 1100) payment for a pre-order.
Now, agreed that a quality unlocked phone and a decent tablet will run up that kinda tab when purchased separately, but the only way I can see the Padfone doing any serious business is if it sells at a substantial discount to the stated price. I mean, this could be the cost of 4 to 5 of the rumored Asus Nexus tablets.
