Yesterday, we attended a press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where we were treated not only to the unveiling of ASUS' new Padfone Infinity and aptly-named Fonepad 7" tablet phone (with which we later got some hands-on time), but also to the dazzling (ly awkward and hilarious) antics of a "tech illusionist," and plenty of other awkward moments.

We were able to share a pretty detailed account of the event, along with a short video, but those who want to see the full unveiling from start to finish can now do so, thanks to ASUS' own YouTube channel. There's really nothing more we can say to prepare you for the experience, except "enjoy."

    Jonney Shih seems to love taking pictures maybe he should be a tech model lol. Anyway he still makes the presentation sort of interesting.

    I'm sorry the press has to sit through this clusterfuck.

    Remember a commercial doesn't have to be good. It can be pretty bad, just as long as you watch it, and talk about it.

    Slightly silly, but Marco Tempest is generally quite awesome:

    That was painful to watch... Even the "magic" was painfully transparent. More like "Watch my put this ball in my pocket and grab it again."

    Asus, Amazing and very unique. Clearly they aren't afraid to take risk

    A top line ASUS marketing exec should be fired after this. Love ASUS' tablets but the padphone is a wired concept that IMO will never stick.
