AT&T has announced that it will be the exclusive carrier of the Asus Padfone X, marking the first time that the Android smartphone-tablet convertible will be officially sold through the carrier in the US. The Padfone X will be an updated model of the Padfone Infinity released last year. The major selling point remains that the phone has a 5-inch display with full HD 1080p resolution that can snap into a special accessorry and power a 9-inch full HD tablet. The Padfone effectively becomes a 2-in-1 device with the necessary add-on.
The Padfone will usher in something completely new for AT&T: LTE Advanced and HD Voice. AT&T has confirmed that it will launch its faster 4G network and enhanced audio quality on phone calls later this year. Price and release date for the Padfone X have not been released yet. More details will be shared during ASUS' Padfone later today, so we'll update this post with that information then.
