over in the "Asus PadFone X" discussion:

Anyone heard if you can use it on Tmobile

Maybe a wacky question for the first post on this thread. Looks like it is an ATT exclusive phone, but ATT is selling the device outright. See any issue with it working on Tmobile?

You didn't specifically say so, but it sounds like SD card access is cumbersome at best, if not impossible, while docked. Also, I don't like how wobbly the phone is inside the dock or how wobbly the dock itself is (maybe they should have included a kickstand) or how the phone can easily slide out if the tablet is held the wrong way.

It also sounds useless for outdoors use, a setting more naturally acclimated to tablets.

Hopefully ASUS will iron out the problems over the next couple years. Thanks...
