Asus PadFone X mini
AT&T today announced the pending availability of the Asus PadFone X Mini — a smaller version of Asus' smartphone-and-tablet combo device. The PadFone X Mini features a 4.5-inch smartphone that transforms into a 7-inch tablet with a dock. It is notable as being one of the first smartphones to be sold in the U.S. with an Intel processor. It features a dual-core 1.6GHz Atom Z2560 with 1GB of RAM and built-in LTE 4G. Other features of the PadFone X Mini include a 5-megapixel main camera and 1-megapixel user-facing camera; Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and GPS; a removable 2,060mAh battery in the smartphone and a non-removable 2,200mAh battery in the tablet; and a stereo headphone jack and support for microSD cards up to 64GB. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Asus' ZenUI. The PadFone X Mini will be sold by AT&T's GoPhone prepaid brand beginning later this month. The device costs $200, with plans starting as low as $40 per month. GoPhone doesn't require contracts. AT&T has sold the larger PadFone X since earlier this year.
