The ASUS Padfone S brings together high end specs for a very low price tag and Malaysian fans of the device can get one now.
According to local ASUS distributor, Dynamic Distributions Sdn. Bhd., the ASUS Padfone S has began retailing in Malaysia since last week. The device was first announced in Computex Taiwan and was due to arrive in Malaysia last month but faced some complications. The Padfone S also raised many eyebrows when its price tag was announced by ASUS Malaysia; a lowly RM 899. Most people would expect a mid range device with a price tag as such but it is far from it.
The ASUS Padfone S packs a punch with its 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity and topped off with a 2300mAh battery. It sports a beautiful 5-inch full HD IPS display with 13 MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. On top of all this, you also have the option of transforming the Padfone S into a tablet by purchasing the PadStation separately for RM 499. The PadStation has a 9-inch 1920×1200 Super IPS display, 1MP camera and a 4990 mAh battery.
For a combined cost of RM 1398, you can get a smartphone-tablet hybrid with the ASUS Padfone S and PadStation, a truly bang-for-buck deal.
