Still trying to decide what to spend all of that holiday cash on? Feel free to cruise over to Daily Steals‘ “Everything Must Go” sale for options. They have a number of Android products, from phones to tablets to docks to media players, all at what they are claiming to be steep discounts. While some of them may be, it’s probably worth noting that these deal sites exaggerate most of their discounts (take the Padfone 2 discount for example), so shopping around is always a smart idea.

Here are some of their sales:

  • Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE (re-certified) – $220 off-contract
  • Motorola Xyboard 4G LTE 32GB – $299
  • Motorola Xyboard 4G LTE 64GB – $349
  • Asus Padfone 2 16GB w/ Dock – $749
  • Motorola Lapdock 100 – $49
  • Samsung Galaxy Player 16GB – $129 (might be sold out)

Asus Padfone 2 Announced – Quad-core Processor, LTE, Ultra-Light Body, and No U.S. Availability

Asus made the Padfone 2 official this morning, a device that they are selling as being “intuitive.” Just as its predecessor, the Padfone 2 is a smartphone that docks inside of a tablet shell to give you both a phone and tablet experience. While docked in the tablet, it’s still capable of making calls and using your wireless plan’s data, so for power users that aren’t interested in paying extra for a tablet data plan, this is the ultimate tech toy.  (more…)

Video: ASUS CEO Shows Off the New Padfone 2

The folks over at Bloomberg have posted a video of ASUS’ new Padfone 2, being handled by none other than the company’s CEO, Mr. Jerry Chen. In the design department, ASUS should be awarded medals. Instead of being attached inside of a compartment like previously, it looks like the phone simply sits on the back side (with a slide-in motion) in the direct center of the tablet dock for use of the phone’s camera. It looks very slick. (more…)

Asus Padfone 2 Full Specs Revealed – Quad-core Processor, 4.7-Inch Super IPS+ Display, 13MP Camera and More

Now, we know that Asus is going to unveil this device on October 16, but so far, most of the specs remained a mystery. Unless of course, this picture is legit. So what do we have?  (more…)

Asus Sends Out Invitations for Padfone 2 Unveiling on October 16

This morning, ASUS has sent out invitations to the press and industry affiliates for them to book their flights over to Taipei, Taiwan and Milan, Italy for the unveiling of the Padfone 2. Unlike some companies, ASUS isn’t trying make this a secret and even has a corner of the device on display in the invitation.

Except for that image above, there are no confirmed specs or even really that many rumored specs to speak of. The only small piece of info out there was a benchmark that showed a Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM. But, that’s just a benchmark and isn’t much to go on.  (more…)
