ASUS Padfone 2 teaser appears online, Oct 16 announcement confirmed

We already knew that the PadFone 2 would be announced on October 16 in two separate events in Taipei and Milan thanks to invites that ASUS sent to the press, but if there was still a bit of doubt lingering in anyone’s mind, it can be laid to rest as ASUS has posted a teaser online for the PadFone 2, confirming its October 16 announcement yet again.

The event in Milan will be streamed live for viewers starting from 11am Milan time (UTC +2), and I’m guessing a lot of people are going to be tuning in to watch it, considering how the leaked specs of the PadFone 2 have got everyone excited. Though I guess the most important piece of info many will be waiting for is whether the PadFone 2 is going to be affordable enough, as the original PadFone failed to capture enough of a market due to its steep pricing, despite carrying the novel idea of acting as a phone as well as tablet when needed.

Here are the ASUS PadFone 2 specs as currently known:

  • Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 1.5Ghz Quad-Core
  • 4.7 inches HD (1280 × 720) display
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 13MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera
  • 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, HSPA+
  • 2140 mAh battery
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Be sure to mark the time and date on your calendar. October 16, 11am Milan time. The PadFone 2 is “intuitive” and it is coming soon.
