The original Asus Padfone was a smartphone that you could slide into a 10 inch tablet dock when you wanted a bigger screen. An optional keyboard dock also let you use the system like a notebook. But the last few Padfone devices from Asus have been phone/tablet hybrids… with no keyboard option.
Now it looks like the keyboard is making a comeback.
The PF-06 documents don’t tell us much about the upcoming phone or tablet dock. But the user manual clearly states that the dock is designed to be used with a Padfone. The keyboard layout also includes Home, Menu, and Back buttons, which make it pretty clear that the dock is designed for use with an Android device rather than a Windows tablet.
There’s a small battery in the keyboard dock, but the 450mAh battery is designed to power the Bluetooth keyboard itself, not to extend the run time of your Padfone.
