Engadget just found out live on their podcast from today’s guest Nicole Scott from NetbooksNews (she knows it from trusted sources close to Asus) that Asus Padfone will make it’s debut in Barcelona, Spain early next year, more precisely at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 held each year in February.
Asus Padfone will not be powered by a Qualcomm Krait S4 processor as pointed by a weird GLBenchmark test that surface not long ago, but by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor (Kal-El) like Eee Pad Transformer Prime launched December 1st in Taiwan.
Asus Padfone for those that do not recall it, the Android smartphone features a 4.3-inch display and comes with a docking screen-tablet inside of which you are able to insert the phone and transform it into a 10.1-inch tablet.
Cool feature right? It would be even better if the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS will come with it out of the box. We will have to wait on Asus decision although it is highly likely to receive a proper upgrade to Android ICS afterwards.
