Here's A Look At ASUS' Padfone 2

With an announcement reportedly just days away, it makes sense we’d be seeing a bit more of the updated version of ASUS’ phone/tablet coupling in the media. In the video above, it only gets about a minute’s worth of airtime, but it’s enough to get an idea of how the Padfone 2 will be like to hold and use.

The clip, from Bloomberg TV, starts out talking about ASUS’ Windows 8 notebooks, so if you’re not terribly excited about Microsoft’s upcoming operating system and the hardware that’ll go with it, skip to about the 1:45-mark for all the Padfone 2 goodness.

While I’m not particularly interested in owning one myself, the “fone” part is, admittedly, a mighty fine-looking gadget. I can imagine the tablet might feel a bit odd with the phone removed, but the phone by itself seems to stand well as an independent device.
