The Asus Padfone runs Ice Cream Sandwich.

To be specific, it runs the same version of Ice Cream Sandwich that runs on its big brother the Asus Transformer Pad.

And yes it also has multitouch, perfect for added extensibility and performance of the Padfone.

What makes the Padfone stand out from its other competitors like the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is its extraordinary battery life. You can use the phone in full blast the whole day without worrying the juice ever running out (just do not forget to charge it of course).

Another uniqueness of the Padfone from Asus is the usage of its many, many accessories. One accessory that is fairly unique to this kind of smartphone is its ability to attach itself to the Asus Transformer Pad. While attached, you can use the full keyboard or full screen of the Transformer Pad to use your one-of-a-kind Padfone.

Another accessory worth mentioning is the stylus. Sure, you can ask, “what’s important with the stylus?

It’s just a steel stick.” Well here’s the crazy part: it can be used as a Bluetooth headset. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone.

Besides the other standard features (An 8 Mega Pixel camera, the seamless use of the ICS flavor of Android, and a very big screen resolution), it can be said that the Asus Padfone is a great contender for the Smartphone market. It’s time for small kids like Asus to enter Apple and Samsung’s battle playground.
