While showing off their all new hot pink colored ASUS Padfone Infinity, it seems the Taiwanese manufacturer may have let slip the possibility of a US variant of the convertible tablet to be announced in the coming weeks. While addressing comments and questions about the lack of a US-friendly 4G LTE PadFone Infinity, an ASUS Global rep said via their Google+ page to “wait and see” for what they could announce at this year’s Computex expo in June.
Typically, Computex is where ASUS likes to show off their latest wares and is held in Taipei, Taiwan. It’s possible we’re reading way too much into this ASUS rep’s comments, but — aside from its awkward name — the ASUS PadFone Infinity has a lot to offer Android fans. Besides, you know, the whole converting into a full sized thing, the PadFone Infinity is equipped with a 5-inch 1080p full HD display (mirroring the tablet portion), packs a Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, 2,400 mAh battery (the tablet portion adds another 5,000 mAh), and a 13MP rear/2MP front facing cameras. Just soak all that in for a minute.
Personally, I’ve had my heart set on an ASUS PadFone Infinity ever since we got some hands-on time with the device at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. At this point I just want to rub it all over my pale skin and sing sweet nothings into its microphone. But seriously, ASUS has a real opportunity to blind-side other Android OEM’s with the PadFone Infinity, one of the most well equipped and unique Android devices to date.
