ASUS applies for “PadFone” Trademark at U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; Name for the Phone-docking Tablet?
We had reported a teaser images released by ASUS with a “Pad or Phone” question and now it sees that the device is both, means the device can be used as pad or Phone and reportedly to be called as Padfone. Since the success of its ASUS Eee Pad Transformer the company is getting more aggressive with exciting devices.
The name PadFone has been submitted for trademark application for the “PadFone”, it was revealed by US Patent and trademark office. The application for the trademark was submitted a few days ago, more accurately on May 23rd. its hard to say if they will indeed be using the name for the upcoming tablet/phone combo, but it makes the most sense, since the application is very recent.
Anyway, now there hasn’t been any confirmation on the device from Asus and no idea on if the device will be more of a tablet than a phone or vice versa. Anyway let’s wait till May 31st when the Computex 2011 is kicked off.
