While the rest of the world drools over the ASUS FonePad (and I am too) the PadFone Infinity stands tall with a range of specs and features well worth throwing some dribble over too. This gorgeous device is taking the tablet/phone hybrid released by ASUS in 2012 a step further with improved design and features.
The PadFone Infinity is a gorgeous creature. Slender and light with a glossy sheen, she will make any collection complete. You get a 5inch, full HD, LTE phone with a 10.1inch HD LTE tablet in one singular device. The body is aluminium allow with a brushed metal finish and you’ll find a lovely battery life of around 19 hours of 3G talk time. That’s seriously good battery right there – unless you forget to charge your phone, you won’t be dealing with a dead phone and tablet on the commute.
According to the specifications laid out on the site, the battery life will be around nine hours for video playback on 720p and eight hours on 1080p with browsing time of 6.5 hours on 3G or 10 hours on Wi-Fi.
The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad Core CPU with the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and 32GB of storage. You get the ASUS WebStorage feature of 50Gb for two years, and access to EDGE, GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, LTE networks. The Padfone Infinity has 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. I love NFC and the functionality it’s bringing to the consumer, this phone is a great purchase for that reason alone.
The ASUS Padfone Infinity offers connectivity options such as a 3.5mm audio socket a Nano SIM slot, Micro USB 2.0 support, 1080p video out and a 13 megapixel camera on the rear. The front has a 2 megapixel camera with a f/2.0 aperture.
