Is it a phone or a tablet? Asus Padfone X Mini.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Is it a phone or a tablet?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   From the Samsung Galaxy Note to the iPhone 6 plus…there are more and more big screen phones on the market.   What the folks at Asus have done with the Padfone X mini….is build a phone with an Intel processor…that works like any other Android device.   But it can slide behind a 7 inch screen to transform into a tablet.  Product Marketing Manager Amy Yen….

“Asus realized that people are using various devices and then with all their busy lives on the go, we really want something that is convenient.  So our R&D and software engineers have been putting a lot of effort through a lot of years to actually perfect this…we call it dynamic display technology.”

One of the benefits is you have a phone on AT&T’s network that can be a tablet too…without having to pay to add another device to your plan.   It’s available on the no contract GoPhone service for about two hundred dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
