Padfone X available to buy as of May 28th – AT&T Event

Update: The original post on 9to5Google.com has been removed. Does that mean the event is cancelled? Were they not supposed to report it? Not sure but we’re looking for more information right now. Stay tuned!

AT&T has sent out exclusive invitation to an event on May 28th. Apparently this will be the public’s first chance to touch and feel this somewhat illusive Padfone X. We say it’s going to be available to buy as of that date based on gut feel and rational thinking. Devices that get announced but take months to release always run the risk of having outdated hardware specs by the time they get to the marketplace. The Padfone X hopefully is not approaching that situation. In fact the actual specs may have already changed and we don’t know that information yet.

So this Padfone X event with AT&T. They are calling this a “First-look” at the Padfone X and will be at 5PM EST on May 28th. No promises are made according to the invites regarding pre orders, price or that much sought release date.

For now, it appears that this model of Padfone is exclusive to AT&T. It’s not clear if that means a differently named model might appear in Canada, or if the Padfone X branding is limited specifically to this one carrier. We know Canadians want to buy a Padfone like many other people out there. Asus has been cautious in coming to North America, so a little bit more patience is going to be required. We will break news about the Padfone in Canada as soon as possible. Hopefully that’s very soon!

Here is another interesting development. The much renowned technology leaker of information and product images @evleaks has just tweeted out a render of the AT&T Padfone X. Seeing this now certainly indicated we are very very close to buying one. Here is the nice looking render:
