We saw it unveiled, we saw it unveiled again, we heard the first details about its “international” release and pricing, and we even got a quick taste of what Asus is planning for it in terms of advertising. Was there any piece of the Padfone 2 puzzle left?
Well, of course there was, as there was still no mention about the hybrid device’s launch in North America, but also in parts of the “Old Continent”. And even if there wasn’t, I for one can’t get enough of the 2-in-1 phone/tablet combo, so any excuse to keep talking about it would have been nice.
But I don’t have just any excuse for this post, as TechRadar claims to have gotten confirmation of the Padfone 2’s UK launch. The online publication spoke with Asus UK technical PR Adam King who said that “we will definitely be getting it early next year” and “we’ll hopefully have some more details before the end of this year”.
“Early next year” could mean January and it could also mean March, and, while the uncertainties are killing us, it’s still nice to be ensured that, unlike the first gen Padfone, the new one will reach Brits. It should be frustrating to know that the Padfone 2 will be available in most other European countries by the end of 2012, but hey, glass half full, right?
