Asus debunks rumour on £700 price tag for Padfone

It seems some tech sites had an itchy trigger finger this morning and prematurely released the speculated price of the upcoming Asus Padfone. The rumour doing the rounds was that the phone, tablet and keyboard docking station combo would retail without a contract at £700 ($1,090). Interestingly, most websites were spinning £700 as a ludicrously high price for the package however I challenge you to pick up a high spec phone, tablet and notebook separately for significantly less. It’s a moot point for the time being as Asus was quick to come forward and set the record straight by releasing the following statement : 

“ASUS is yet to announce pricing and availability of the ground-breaking and shape-shifting PadFone – anything to the contrary is merely rumours and speculation. We will be announcing details with our carrier partners in due course, so keep an eye out for updates on the official ASUS website and social media pages for more information as and when it is available.”

There we have it, those of you keen to get your hands on Asus innovative, new 3-in-1 combo will just have to wait a little longer to find out just how big a dent it will make on their credit card!

    Providing the specs hold up this could be my replacement for my Galaxy S2.

    I was looking for a tablet but might just go for this all in one solution.

    My speculation: (Off contract of course) $650 phone, $300 tablet, $150 keyboard = $1000. Anything less is a steal.
