We may be moving!

We may be moving to our new site, in the very near future! Our suspicion is growing about the Padfone branding being changed into the Zenfone line-up. Jerry Shen, Asus CEO, said last year that the Padfone line “may” become part of Zenfone Deluxe. So we just give you our readers the heads up. […]

Only a quick mention of Padfone at 1Q 2016 Asus investors conference

We are trying to remain positive on a new Padfone. However the 1Q 2016 investors conference shed no more light. If I was to say hot or cold, I would say cold right now. The Padfone got a mention in a slide, but more as a reflective comment about their innovations from the past. Absolutely […]

Things have been too quiet regarding the new Padfone

This has been interesting. Lots of Zenfone 3 rumors, but nothing regarding the next Padfone. Computex 2016 is in a few weeks and there has been no indication of the new model. So at some point we could start asking about the Padfone S2 and X2. As in, is Asus changing the Padfone branding all […]

Or is he hinting at the fact that the Zenfone Deluxe smartphones will be compatible with the docking mechanism on the next Padfone S2 or Padfone X2? Here is the original comment: Additionally, […]

Padfone S2 Specs – Fact or Fiction?

Part of us is sad at the thought of waiting until 2016 for a new Padfone. If this first true rumor/leak is legitimate, then the Padfone S2 will be seeing a 2016 release date, perhaps even as late as March 2016. This timeline is based on the apparent processor that is part of this rumor, […]
