ASUS' modular PadFone X is finally coming to AT&T for $199

ASUS Padfone X for AT&T

AT&T promised back in January that it would launch ASUS’ PadFone X hybrid, but the device has been stuck in limbo ever since — the carrier hasn’t given out much more than specs for the phone-and-tablet combo. Today, though, there’s finally a date to mark on your calendar. The PadFone X should be available on June 6th for $199 on a two-year contract, or $23 per month if you buy it on an 18-month Next payment plan.

The hardware hasn’t changed in the space of half a year, although it’s still reasonably current. The core phone is a 5-inch Android device with a speedy Snapdragon 800 processor, 16GB of expandable storage and a 13-megapixel rear camera; the 9-inch tablet shell provides a bigger screen for the docked phone as well as an extra battery and wireless charging. You can’t exactly call this a timely launch, but it’s still big news for Americans who’ve previously had to import ASUS’ two-in-one device concept.
