In the US, ASUS may only be known for its graphics and the Nexus tablet line. The company developed both Nexus 7 tablets and it is rumored they will be making the new Nexus 10 tablet, set for release alongside the LG Nexus 5.
ASUS has said they want to break into the US market by the end of 2014 and the while the new PadFone Infinity A86 may not be a big jump in specs compared to the previous generation, it is definitely one of the most powerful smartphones on the market.
The ASUS PadFone Infinity A86 has the all too familiar Snapdragon 800 CPU inside, along with 2GB of RAM to keep things buttery smooth. The main feature on the PadFone Infinity line is the ability to slot the smartphone on the back of a tablet, named the FonePad.
ASUS will launch the PadFone Infinity A86 in Taiwan in six days, on their website ASUS currently have a countdown with a short video, showing the PadFone Infinity liftoff. There is currently no information regarding dates for Europe and the US.
Even though they have little presence in the US, the ASUS PadFone Infinity line has been rather popular in certain parts of Europe. We would not be surprised to see a launch in some areas of Europe within the coming months.
