Asus PadFone 2

Earlier today we reported that Asus had announced the Padfone Infinity. While the Infinity looks great, it is also rather pricey. Looking for something a bit cheaper? The Asus Padfone 2 is heading to the UK on March 1st.

While not as expensive as the Asus Padfone Infinity, the Padfone 2 isn’t exactly cheap either, priced at £599.99. Still, that’s £200 less than then you will have to pay to get your hands on the Snapdragon 600-based Infinity.

For those that need the reminder on the hardware, the Padfone 2 features a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch Super IPS+ display and a 2140mAh battery. You also get 32GB internal memory, a 13MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

So are dockable tablets worth the money over simply buying a separate tablet and smartphone? The answer to that question is largely a matter of preference.There are certainly drawbacks to a dockable design, such as not being able to pass the tablet to a friend or family member while still having access to your phone, but there is also the advantage of having all your data, music and videos on one device.

What do you think, is the Asus PadFone 2 worth the money?
