MIUI, one of Android's most popular custom ROM flavors, has been limited to purely software for existing devices... until today.

There are a number of security applications available for Android, such as WaveSecure and Lookout, which lock down your phone if it is lost or stolen, but few come close to being as secure and robust as Theft Aware 2.0.

[Updated: It's Official - Runs Both Gingerbread & Honeycomb] ASUS Phone + Brainless 10" Tablet Shell = Padfone

We already kind of knew a tablet/phone tag team would be coming out of ASUS at Computex this week, so today's leaked press photos of the symbiotic duo, simply called Padfone, neither shock nor disappoint.

What ASUS will undoubtedly officially announce tomorrow is a brainless tablet shell combined with a phone that fits snugly right in the back, held by this ridiculous-looking mechanism that teases my imagination with a world full of Russian Matryoshka-like devices that all fit inside each other.

  • Android 2.2 (ಠ_ಠ)
  • 4.3" 480x800 display
