PadFone coming to MWC, ASUS invite promises

ASUS will bring its long-delayed PadFone device to the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona at the tail end of February, confirming earlier rumors. This news comes from ASUS itself, who sent out a media invite shared by Android Central. The PadFone was introduced in May and is actually two devices in one, with a 4.3-inch smartphone at the core and a 10-inch tablet serving as a dock and larger screen.

The device is believed to use NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset, though this hasn't been confirmed. It will also likely ship with Android 4.0 onboard rather than Android 3, as believed earlier. If it were to use older platforms, it would need to either have two operating systems or run the tablet on an unoptimized platform. The phone, when docked into the tablet, draws a charge from the more capacious battery.

The release date and pricing details, along with the full specs of the finished release, are expected at MWC.
