Asus set to announce PadFone 2 on October 16

Asus, according to reports, have asked the tech press to pen down in their diaries the date of October 16th, 2012.

This is most likely in order to announce their second generation PadFone device in Milan and Taipei.

This is a mark of rapid progress for Asus who only months ago released the first generation PadFone in Australia.

The PadFone, an Android smartphone, has the ability to be docked inside a 10.1inch tablet known as the PadFone Station.

Asus also produce a keyboard dock that can be attached to the PadFone Station, allowing consumers to dock their PadFone smartphone in a PadFone Station tablet, and in turn dock ther tablet on a laptop-style keyboard.
