    Awhile back I saw a few pictures and videos of a Asus WP7 device dating from May 2011, and an article about the chevron team being given Asus phones? Cannot find anything dating after May, and what is found is very little. Anyone know what happened to it? specs? anything? I am a huge ASUS fan, would love to know!

    I remember it, it looked very similar to a Samsung Omnia 7. (Although in the video it seems rather thick)
    Just like you!
    Right who said that at the back ? Grrrrrrr ;)

    I think they were experimenting but it never did come to anything. (Never say Never though I guess)

    It was the Asus E600 - 5 Megapixel camera, and a 4 inch screen.

    I think this is the one you are on about DarkFears, i don't remember any other Asus handset.

    Oh and a warm welcome to WPC. :)

    I also remember some crazy tablet/phone they were showing. The phone would dock inside of the tablet, but I haven't heard anything else about it.

    That would be the Asus Padphone palandri.

    Thanks for that! I am glad someone else remembers it. It's on the Asus site, but I haven't heard anything else about it. i wonder if they dropped it.

    Not sure palandri. Some amazing ideas seem to pop up and never see the light of day. :(

    You are correct. They may come out with one in 2012.
