Asus Padfone Mini arrives next week
The Asus Padfone Mini will be unveiled in Taiwan on December 11 during a dedicated event that has not been officially confirmed yet. On the other hand, popular tipster evleaks posted a press render of the smartphone/tablet dock duo on Twitter so it would not be a surprise to get an official confirmation of the launch on Monday or Tuesday.
The specs and features of the Padfone Mini have not been confirmed by Asus either, but most rumors mention a 4.3-inch display with 960X540 pixels for the smartphone and 7-inch/1,280X800 pixels for the tablet, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of memory. Although Android KitKat has been out for a while, it is said that Asus Padfone Mini will come loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The 4.3-inch/7-inch Padfone Mini will become the fourth dockable Padfone device from Asus, following the PadFone Infinity which was announced on February 25 2013 at the Mobile World Congress. There is no information regarding availability and pricing at this time, but the device is expected to initially hit Asia, with the European market following shortly after.
