It’s difficult to keep things a secret at MWC, so although Asus aren’t set to launch the latest Fonepad until this afternoon a possible name and leaked specifications have already been found.

The keen-eyed over at The Verge have spotted a number of “Padfone Infinity” banners over at the Asus booth at MWC. The Padfone Infinity is probably the name for the latest fonepad which has been hinted at a number of times this year.

Along with the alleged name for the device, hardware configurations have been leaked too claiming that both the phone and tablet are capable of 1080 HD playback, the phone will feature a 5-inch display while the tablet offers a 10.1-inch panel. LTE support is also included and a power 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU runs both devices.

Personally I don’t see the point in having a phone which docks in to a tablet, and I would personally much prefer to carry a 5-inch 1080 phone and cheap tablet with me than the Padfone. What about you guys?

    I saw plenty of uses in the first PadFone, and I still do now.

    Basically, the ability to use a single data plan, charge your mobile phone, have the ability to showcase things on a larger screen, and if your tablet doesn’t have 3G, it gets rid of the need to keep tethering.

    Also, most cheap tablets don’t have GPS, which makes them impossible to use as a navigation device.

    Definitely excited about this one

    I agree with Hamsteyr … however I would go a little further.

    Having received a Nexus 7 … FREE .. in a contract deal for a Samsung Galaxy Y for my wife … I absolutely LOVE the 7 inch format; and it’s just been OTA’d to 4.2.2 !

    Who’s a lucky boy ?

    I would certainly like to see a 7 inch tablet with a dock for a 5.5 inch smartphone.

    This would be an IDEAL device combination for the ‘car travelling’ … SatNav using … Android fan

    By the way … how can we get the ‘low cost’ Chinese 6 inch offerings to deliver an OTA service ?

    That’s really annoying me.

    I’d rather have double the battery life if I really have to carry large phone and a tablet. Data linking can easily be taken care of with cloud if, again, I really have to.
