    I would have bought this if it was released in the US. Shame...

      I would entertain the idea but probably wouldn't have bought it.

      Daily Steals has had the phone/tablet bundle listed for $749 w/ free shipping since before X-Mas. I've been so tempted, but I have TMO so it won't work on their HSPA+ yet here so between that and I'm happy with the Nexus 4 (especially now with CM 10.1) I can't pull the trigger. It might be more tempting if they were throwing in the keyboard dock as well.

    They should really pull a Google and sell this on their website and have it just work on GSM carriers or something. I'd definitely look into it.

    i updated the firmware software yesterday. But it asked me if i want to install or not.. It said it will be installation for one hour or 3hour or 1 day. So i clicked one hour.. It had been proccessed for one hour yesterday so it was supposed to be finished for one hour but it continued to be proccessed for more than one hour.. I was so puzzled .. So i turned the hp off cos it was very very hot on asus hp.. This morning, i turned it on then it is still the same " proccessing" .. i so fed up.. What will i do with the hp? I suspect tat something wrong with the asus hp..

    Best phone ever. I have iPhone 5, sgs2, HTC one x. Those phones iPhone is the best for battery, lasting 1.5 days for me. Padfone 2 with its new tech screen lasts 4 days.. That's as long as my old Nokia E6!!! All while being a big display most powerful phone you can get right now. Battery + power + nice design.. Better than Samsung as good as HTC and iPhone feel in hand. What else do you want oh and the LTE speeds in Australia are great.
