    Is this a joke? Draw on camera? Draw on screen? The Padfone is not even HD! How is the L920 boring?

    Yes. The camera on both are 8 mp, the 920 just has some fance software added, no big deal there. The screen is not a big issue either because once inserted into the station it's transforned into a 1280 x 800 WXGA display with Gorilla Glass.

    The phone itself really isn't a big deal either. Why? Because most people will keep the phone in the station anyway. Only when it's not convenient to carry the station will the phone be out on it's own.

    Instead of focusing on a camera and display don't you think it's pretty intersting how well the PadFone stacks up against Nokia's flagship? You cannot deny that this could easily be a WP now can you?

    Think about it... Why buy to separate devices when Asus puts it all in one package?

    Well it's actually an 8.7 mp and it has ois and a bigger aperture so you just seem to be blind to facts

    Ahhh... personal attacks how nice! And I got warned for one of my posts. Anyway lets stick to facts shall we?

    .7 mp and a slightly larger aperature will make a HUGH difference... NOT! True I don't know what ois is but the simple point is there practically the same.

    Ah practically the same and tied aren't the same thing. Optical image stabilization it steady's the camera allowing more light in making night time pictures much better.

    It is always more convenient to carry a phone sized device over a tablet sized device. Pass me some of whatever you're on. lol

    Few things left out of connectivity as well. What about NFC and Qi?

    Probably not but it's hard to find the specs on this bugger. Also, they are about to release PadFone 2! I'm hoping that one will be for the US market but we won't know until Oct. 16th

    Well some people aren't ready for the new frontier I suppose. Then again I said I'd never buy a tablet cause I had a smartphone and a new laptop... Once I bought a tablet I ended using the tablet more than the laptop!

    OK, your comparisons are off as the screen on the 920 is far better than the padfone, as is the camera, but the padfone would get points for being an innovative idea.
    The 32Gb of asus web storage is a non issue, as the whole point of WP8 is the cloud integration, adding a 3rd party storage solution into the mix defeats the point, might as well use dropbox which is supported by more vendors but is still a poor second due to the third party nature of the app.

    Having said that, Id bet there would be a few interested parties if Nokia brought out a padfone type idea for a tablet

    I suppose it's a matter of choice, for me a camera is a camera so meh! As for the screen I wouldn't care about that either cause most of the time the phone would be in the large and vibrant station. What is the difference between Skydrive and Asus web storage? Don't they both do the same thing?

    Since the Surface announcement I had hoped Nokia & MS would show us a Surface phone-let but no such luck. Considering Nokia is in MS hip pocket you would think this would be a no brainer.

    Thanks lady... or dude... or whatever you are!

    Although they both do the same thing, it is all about the integration.
    With WP8, skydrive is configured as a location within the OS and applications, apps will store their data on skydrive. If using Asus web storage, you would need to save locally and then backup to the cloud - the integration isn't there.
    After years of using various cloud solutions with android, integration makes a massive difference, I wouldn't touch the asus solution (I have it as I have a rampage motherboard) as most apps don't support it.

    Since the Surface announcement I had hoped Nokia & MS would show us a Surface phone-let but no such luck. Considering Nokia is in MS hip pocket you would think this would be a no brainer.
    Completely agree, it would be an interesting solution that if done well would interest a lot of people
