ASUS sends out “save the date” for the Padfone 2 announcement

asus save the date - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Even though it wasn’t widely available here in the US, it looks like the ASUS Padfone was successful enough for the Chinese manufacturer to give the device another go. ASUS just sent out “save the date” announcements for the ASUS Padfone 2, which will be officially unveiled on October 16 in Milan, Italy and Taipei, Taiwan.

We have almost no details about the specs of the Padfone 2, other than the probability that it will sport a quad-core processor. I’d speculate that, since both announcements are scheduled for places outside the US, it’s unlikely that ASUS has lined up any American carrier partners. Still, I hope that either Sprint or T-Mobile at least consider offering this innovative device that’s a phone, tablet, and netbook all in one. It’s so innovative, in fact, that I think it could cause quite a huge splash in the US market, and give Sprint or T-Mobile a much needed boost in customer counts.

We’ll of course know more by mid-October.
