Asus Chairman- Jonney Shih has told that the Asus Padfone will be coming in early 2012. For those who are not aware of Padfone, the Padfone is a device that combines the features of a smartphone and a tablet. It looks like a typical 10 inch Android tablet but when you flip open a compartment and remove the smartphone with a 4.3 inch display that was hiding under the hood, you get a Padfone.

That is to say when you slide the phone into the tablet dock, you get the benefits of the larger 10 inch display for watching video, surfing the web, reading books, or just about any other activity.
