AT&T swears PadFone X still coming at some point, drops new vids

What’s worse, a device that you hear rumored for months and months but never seems ready to go official, or one that sees a formal announcement, but then never manages to actually go up for sale? It’s been over one hundred days since ASUS announced the PadFone X at CES, to be an AT&T exclusive in the US. We were told that pricing, specs, and availability info would be forthcoming, and while we have gotten an update on those hardware details, there’s been no news concerning a start of sales. Instead, AT&T’s been talking about the PadFone X every few weeks, reminding us that it still exists, but not really making any visible progress towards retail sales – at least so far as we can see. Our last check-in occurred right at the end of March, and now it’s April’s turn to assure us that the PadFone X is still coming… eventually.

This time we’ve got a pair of new videos, one from AT&T and one from ASUS itself. Truth be told, there’s nothing much new here – if you’re even remotely acquainted with the idea of PadFone devices in general, you’re ahead of the audiences these spots appear intended for. Instead, our interest comes from the fact that these are being published at all, and that the PadFone X remains on track for an AT&T release.

But when? Well, that’s the noodle-scratcher. But considering what this combo is likely to cost, maybe we should be focusing on that unknown detail, instead.
