AT&T today announced the availability and pricing details for the Asus PadFone X. The smartphone-tablet hybrid can be purchased from AT&T's web site and stores beginning June 6. The device will cost $200 with a two-year contract, or $22.92 for 18 months, or $29.80 for 12 months with AT&T Next plans. Asus announced the PadFone X at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. It includes both a 5-inch Android smartphone and a 9-inch dock that converts the PadFone X into a tablet.
Asus' hybrid Android smartphone-tablet is an interesting device. It tries to be two things at once, but only does one thing really well.
Asus' smartphone-tablet hybrid is finally here! The combo device includes a smartphone and dock that transforms the PadFone X into a tablet.
Asus introduced a flurry of new devices at CES today, the most interesting of which are those that combine a smartphone and a tablet. Here are our thoughts about the PadFone Mini and PadFone X.

Asus CEO Jerry Shen said that the company is developing a PadFone for a U.S. network operator.
It's actually a good deal
The cool part here is you get phone and tablet functionality, and don't have to pay the carrier extra for having it. If that saves $10 per month in access fees, you're good for $240 of the price of the equipment. Not too shabby!
Same Product, Differnt Package...Looser!
I don't see people buying this pad device, when they can buy a stand alone Android tablet for around the same price. If they can guarantee that Asus' next couple of phone upgrades will be compatible, then maybe, but unlikely it will happen.
I find this form factor appealing whereas the Atrix form factor was not.
