Asus PadFone line coming to U.S. in 2014
Asus CEO Jerry Shen says that the PadFone line will be coming to the United States in the coming year. Previously offered in Asian markets, the tablet/phone duo device should expand to the United States and Europe for 2014 and beyond. We might expect to see the PadFone to debut stateside in the second quarter of the year however we don’t know the details. Presumably, there will be a new model to introduce when the time comes.
“Once this product is launched [in the US], we will definitely have no problem tackling Europe with the same product, because this US operator is very big.” Shen said confidently.

With CES behind us and CTIA fast approaching, one begins to think about the laundry list of impressive features being added to android handsets and tablets. Dual-core, HD display, HDMI, Wifi hotspot, 3D, Near Field Communication, ‘4G’…the list goes on and on. All features that you want, and need, on your android. Mobile technology and the android operating system have been growing at an amazing pace – think of how far we’ve come from October 2008. From Cupcake to Gingerbread: 5 different versions of android in just over two years – a new version every 5.4 months. What’s left you ask? The mobile battery!
Back in November, we heard that game developer PopCap was working on Android versions of several of its most popular games, aiming to release them in “early 2011.” We now have more information:
Bejeweled 2 will debut this week.
Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle and Chuzzle are on track to release in the second quarter of 2011.
They don’t plan to use OpenFeint at this point, but they are “more likely” to use Facebook Connect.
I’m not sure if Q2 counts as “early,” but it will still be in the first half of the year, so I guess we can say they’re generally on target–and it sounds like they will be worth the wait.
