Watch Live: ASUS’ Announcements at CES 2014

ASUS is doing a press event in Las Vegas this morning as well, though they decided to do it outside of the official CES press day and are hosting media at Caesars Palace. Since the event also happens to run at the same time as Qualcomm’s, we decided to see what Qualcomm was up to instead. Thankfully, ASUS is streaming the entire event for all to see. 

What will we get? Well, it’s looking like the Padfone X on its way to AT&T is officially official. For years, ASUS has tried to bring its Padfone line (phone-tablet-hybrid) to the States, but U.S. carriers haven’t exactly been accepting of the idea that someone could slide a phone into a tablet and continue to use the same data plan. We’ll see how AT&T deals with this (especially in terms of pricing).

The phone sports a 5-inch display, docks into a 9-inch tablet, will connect to AT&T’s LTE Advanced network (when it launches), and takes advantage of VoLTE with HD Voice (when it goes live too).

Other than that, it would be great to see a new tablet from the company that has been one of our favorites in the Android slate game.

The live stream will be posted here. If it’s embeddable, we’ll be sure to include it in this post once it goes live.

    The ZenFone 5 is a great phone for the price.

    Although I am glad that it is finally coming to America, the new size doesn’t exactly thrill me. I thought it made a whole lot more sense when it was a 4″ phone docking in a 10″ tablet. I am not sure if 5″ -> 9″ is going to be enough to really grab people as much. I know that I would not want anything bigger than my Moto X in my pocket and yet I really like my 10″ tablet at home, at my work desk, or watching a movie on a flight.

    Wait a second that phone icon is the wrong way… it’s pretty ugly IMO.

    This guy is Steve Jobs 2.0. He is so damn persuasive and fun to watch.

    He reminds me of the guy on “Bubble Boy” “500 DOLLAH!”
