Asus is reportedly expanding its line of smartpohones with a new, smaller Padfone and its first smartphone based on the MeMO brand (which Asus currently uses for low-end tablets).

We first heard about these devices last month in a leaked product presentation, but now China Times confirms that Asus is working to bring them to market.

asus roadmap

The Asus Padfone mini would work much like the company’s other Padfone products. You’d have a smartpohone that slides into a tablet dock, letting you use all the functions of your phone on a bigger screen (with the added benefit of a bigger battery).

But up until now all of the Asus Padfone devices have featured 10 inch tablet stations. The Padfone mini would be a 4 inch smartphone with a 7 inch tablet dock. It’s expected to launch in November or December.

There aren’t many details about the MeMOFone HD 5, but the name suggests it’ll have a 5 inch display, with a resolution of at least 1280 x 720 pixels.

  1. Read the 4″ phone part, and got my hopes up… but then the 7″ tablet form factor brought them back down again. I guess I’ll have to check it out in person once it releases here in Singapore, but why couldn’t they have just kept the 10″ screen on the tablet?
    Of course, they still do need to fix the fact that the Padfone won’t play nice with any US carrier’s LTE bands…
