ASUS Padfone X Makes Its Way To The FCC

ASUS AT&T Padfone X

The ASUS Padfone X was originally launched back in January during the CES, with AT&T announcing the availability shortly after. However, the tablet is yet to see a launch despite teasers being posted by the carrier. This tablet-smartphone hybrid has now made its way to the FCC for certification, indicating that it’s one step closer from official retail availability.

This is the first among Padfone family to make its way to the U.S. officially, so its launch has been eagerly expected by fans.

It consists of a 5 inch 1080p smartphone, which fits in to the 9 inch tablet dock also with a 1080p resolution. Other features include 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and a quad core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset.

ASUS has clarified that the Padfone X will be exclusive to the carrier in the U.S., so the delay is certainly not going to concern the carrier much. But with the certification almost completed now, we’re guessing the actual launch isn’t far away.

Information on pricing is very scarce at the moment, but expect AT&T to offer both on-contract and off contract variants along with an AT&T Next plan as well.
