The new device might be one in a hundred at MWC, but has got great significance, since it’s design varies considerably from that of conventional tablets and smartphones. The PadFone is basically a smartphone built in a tablet chassis. The launch of this hybrid device has now been scheduled for April 2012.

Overall, the smartphone has got a wonderful configuration. It is designed with Qualcomm’s dual core processor, Snapdragon S4 MSM8960, to power the device. A spectacular 4.3 inch screen hosts high definition AMOLED display, featuring qHD technology. The device has got an 8 megapixel camera, fitted at its rear, and has been made to work on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform.

The three- in- one device can be transformed to a tablet simply by placing in under a 10.1 inch tablet chassis. Similarly, it is even possible to reform it into a notebook using a docking accessory. Sounds wonderful, right?
