Ive been looking at this for the last month or so waiting for it to come out, its getting some pretty good reviews.

Ive got a S2 at the moment and the S3 just hasnt taken my fancy at all, I think I would be far better off with this.

Who else has seen the padfone. Thoughts/ideas?
The handsfree kit is going to be a must! : )

Yep, I'm very interested too! Have only seen it through video reviews etc, so very keen to hear about it when someone gets it.

Where did you get it? How much for (if you don't mind me asking)?

It looks nice. As I don't share my iPad or phone with family, it could work for me but I already have a tablet and phone, so there is not much point in changing.

Perhaps next year if they keep making improvements, then with version 2 it could be worth thinking about as an upgrade option. Ideally if it had the capability of a full os (win / linux) with the keyboard docked, then it would be an amazing device (android phone + android tablet + full laptop option). That would probably convert me.

Upon thinking though, my logic is flawed, as the laptop side of things would need to work independently of the phone.

How are you finding it the phone?
Battery and general use?
Ive got a samsung s2 at the moment and use the camera a lot for work, so a bigger screen to do that is going to be great!
