The phone/tablet combo will ship with Android 4.0 ICS platform onboard
Although Asus already announced the third device in the Padfone family earlier this week at Mobile World Congress 2013, in Barcelona, the company plans to release the Padfone 2 in the UK.Eurodroid reports the phone/tablet combo is now available for pre-order at Ebuyer for no less than £600 / €695 / $900.
Those unwilling to pay such an outrageous amount may want to wait until Carphone Warehouse makes the Padfone 2 available.
For the time being, the device is listed as “Coming Soon” without any price tags attached to it, so the retailer might put it on sale for a similar amount. Check it out here.
The bad news is Asus Padfone 2 will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, though the handset maker confirmed a Jelly Bean upgrade would be available soon.
