Asus PadFone Mini is now official

The smaller alternative to the PadFone Infinity brings together a 4.3-inch phone and a 7-inch tablet, confirming all the recent rumors regarding its specs and features.

The rumors have been confirmed and Asus revealed the PadFone Mini in Taiwan as a cheaper alternative to the PadFone Infinity. The specs and features have been pushed down a bit to match the price, but the Asus PadFone Mini surely remains a tempting device at roughly $405 off-contract (for the Taiwanese market).

These are the technical specs of the Asus PadFone Mini, now official:

  • Processor: 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon MSM8226
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB DDR3;  16 GB internal storage and microSD support  up to 64 GB
  • Display: 4.3-inch with 960X540 pixels (phone) and 7-inch with 1,280X800 pixels (tablet), both Super IPS screens
  • Cameras: 8 MP with autofocus and LED flash primary, 2 MP secondary
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, micro USB 2.0, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Operating system: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • Batteries: 1,500 mAh (phone) and 2,200 mAh (tablet)
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.23 pounds and 5.09X2.58X0.34 inches (phone); 0.68 pounds and 7.83X4.72X0.46-0.7 inches (tablet)

This new PadFone will be available in Titanium Black, Platinum White and Soft Pink and will soon be released in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Russia. Unfortunately, it is not known yet if it will reach the United States.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
