So it seems the Padfone may not make it State side. When I inquired about if the handset for the Padfone will be available separately to a contact at Asus this was his response.
For the Padfone. I do not think it will be released in North American shores. The market it too saturated over here with cellular devices and our partnerships with USA/CANADA cellular carriers view it the same way. I’ll let you know if this changes.
So it looks like we might not see it released in the States. Lets hope this changes
