Asus Padfone 2 on sale in 2013

Asus has confirmed that the Padfone 2 will not be available in Australia until 2013, since the original went on sale in the country so recently.

The device is a smartphone with a 4.7-inch screen, which can be used to power a tablet computer with a 10.1-inch display.

Phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which incorporate smartphone features onto a device with a larger screen, are becoming increasingly popular as gadget lovers look to get more for their money.

The Taiwanese manufacturer is targeting this market slightly differently by offering 'separate' devices for a competitive price.

A 32 GB handset plus tablet dock will be available in the firm's home country for TWD$23,990 (AU$795).

Specifications are impressive – the second-generation Padfone has a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and Android Jelly Bean, which should ensure speedy and smooth performance.

Aussie owners should also be able to take advantage of the latest high-speed 4G networks provided by Telstra and Optus, as the gadget features Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
