Asus might have already given us the Eee Pad Transformer, but it’s the Padfone that’s most skilled at gadget metamorphosis. It starts off as an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) phone with dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera and a 4.3in AMOLED screen. Combine it with the Padfone Station, though, and it becomes a fully fledged tablet, with a 10.1in, 1280x800 IPS screen and five times the battery life. That makes it a tablet you can still make calls with, although you might want to add the dual-function Stylus Headset for that. Yup – even the accessories can’t make their minds up.
