Asus finally announced their much talked about Padfone at Computex 2011 in Taipei.

According to Asus the Padfone explores the possible convergence between a mobile phone and a tablet. The device is divided into two halves- a phone and a tablet, with the phone cradling inside the tablet when in tablet mode.

The phone section of the device will house the Sim-card and when the phone is attached to the Tablet section the problem of multiple sim -cards will be solved as the same connection will deliver 3G connectivity.

The company believes the dual interfaces for both the tablet and the phone will ensure an enhanced user interface for web browsing, video conferencing and email.

The device is expected in December. Asus has not confirmed the operating system of the device but we have a sneaky feeling this might be one of the first devices to come loaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich. India launch dates were not announced.

Previously, the company launched the EeePad Transformer which was an Android Honeycomb tablet but with a keyboard dock that transformed it into a full-fledged Android netbook.
