It’s A Tablet! It’s a Phone! No, it’s a Padfone!

Our friends at engadget have some great video of Asus’s new “tablet”, the Padfone. Unlike the Xoom, which turns into a laptop/desktop, the Padfone is a phone that docs into a tablet.
This is the exact sort of gizmo that this site is built around. Cool concept, unique approach, and something I’d love to get my hands on. Doubly so if it turns out to be a Google “Ice Cream Sandwich” device. The tablet/phone interface switch is intriguing.
The question, of course, is if it will be intriguing enough to consumers to make any kind of dent in the clear market lead Apple and (to lesser extent) Samsung have.
