Normally when journalists get an invite from a tech company like Samsung or Apple, it’s cryptic. There are a few hints as to what we’ll see when the event finally comes around that kick the rumour mill into high-gear. Not Asus, though. Asus has said that it’s going to show everyone the Asus Padfone 2 in Taiwan and Italy come-October 16.
You’ve got to respect Asus for doing this. It means nobody can over-excite themselves about Asus launching something completely mad like a space program or something before the event actually rolls around. Managing the hype is a great idea.
We liked the original Padfone when it came out, hopefully the Padfone 2 fixes the few things we didn’t like and perfects the hybrid phone/tablet format.
What should be in the new Padfone? [Phandroid]
