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?

Thanks for this review

If I was up for a new phone and willing to switch to ATT (which I'm not), I think I would pass on this one. You've convinced me that execution was poor.

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. I wouldn't mind the weight and bulk so much if the whole thing was sturdy and cohesive.

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...

It's actually a good deal

Some say the dock may not be compatible with the next model, but nobody ever said it would. In two years with the next phone, get the newest dock too. It'll probably be better anyway.

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!

They tried this years ago with the Motorola Atrix. While the docking device was vastly more expensive, the Atrix 2 was not compatible. This makes buying such a device pointless.

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.

looking forward to the full review

But please leave out the infinite references to build quality. No one interested in this device will care if it has a case constructed of brushed platinum interwoven with threaded zebra skin and rubies and sapphires for physical buttons and a screen made of pure kryptonite.

What we really want to know is if it can be functional as both a tablet and phone. More stuff like the bulge that prevents it from sitting evenly when typing would be welcome. What happens when the phone rings while using it as a tablet? Does an incoming call totally disrupt whatever you're working on? Does docking or undocking the phone have any impact on call quality or data connectivity? How easy is it to mess up the docking connector on either end? Does it support ...

Monthly installments are incorrect

The installment price is correct but with the AT&T Next Program, the payment is broken down into 20 monthly payments with the ability to trade in your device after 12 months and 26 monthly payments with the ability to trade in your device after 18 months. Please correct this. This is the second time I've noticed the installment plan quoted incorrectly.

AWESOME

I fail to see how anyone can seriously think this device will be crap.

Typo

In paragraph 5 "direct contract" should be "direct contrast".

What do you get?

When you add two turds together? One big steaming pile of poo. Or a PadFone. Same thing.

Lots of criticism of this device

But none that is constructive.

YES!

I have really really been wanting to see this product line come to the US. If they do it right, I will likely never own another Samsung phone.
