It’s been established that the ASUS’ Padfone 2 is a bit of a looker. Shame it won’t be available in Australia until the first quarter of next year. Unless, of course, you order one today from MobiCity, in which case a Padfone 2 could be yours sometime early November.
An article at Ausdroid has the scoop, where it’s mentioned that MobiCity will only have 30 units of the black model available for early purchasers. Those hoping for local 4G compatibility will be disappointed, with the MobiCity product page suggesting support for 3G only.
Including shipping, you’re looking at a spend close to $970. If you’re OK with the price and can’t wait for next year, this is your best chance to snag the hybrid device a couple of months before the rest of the crowd.
