Asus phone-tablet pair set for 2012 launch

Quad-core, of course

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Asus' tablet-docking smartphone, the Padfone, will make its debut at Mobile World Congress 2012 and sport an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

The company's anticipated tablet-uniter will touch down early next year, says netbook journalist Nicole Scott, who claimed to have good authority when she made the announcement during an Engadget Mobile Podcast.

Asus Padfone

The Padfone is basically a 4.3in smartphone which clips into a 10.1in tablet, gaining boosted battery life, and sharing data and 3G internet access over a single Sim, not unlike the Motorola Atrix and its Laptop Dock.

With its quad-core Tegra 3 chip, the handset joins its big brother tablet, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, in next-gen speed land, when both are launched in Blighty early next year.

We look forward to learning more about the Padfone at MWC, which takes place in Barcelona between 27 February and 1 March 2012. ®
