The Transphone is an Android tablet and smartphone hybrid. How does it compare to the Asus Padfone? Read on to find out in our full Transphone review.
The Asus Padfone caused quite a stir when it was first unveiled.
A two-devices-in-one product that saw a phone clip into a larger shell to become a tablet was the height of innovation. However, Asus had real difficulties bringing the product to market and while it did finally go on sale in small numbers in Taiwan, the company has now launched version two without us ever seeing it on the shelves in the UK.
If you’re interested in the idea, though, maybe the Transphone is worth a look. It’s built along similar lines to the Padfone but is not the cheap clone you might be imagining – it was developed by the man who invented the USB key, and the company holds three patents relating to the concept.
