    ASUS Pad phone. What a great idea.

    Asus have a phone that plugs into a tablet. Not sure if the product itself is any good but the idea rocks.

    Sorry but the video is not in English.

    ...... a bit like the Motorola Atrix .... Android Dual-Core Mobile Smart Phone - Motorola ATRIX - Experience - Motorola Mobility, Inc. United Kingdom. Like the look of the ASUS though because I really want a transformer but cant really afford it

    yes but some networks get shirty and wont count any data used by a tethered device as part of your allowance and will charge you for it

    how will they know? AFAIK all traffic is originating from the android - same as any other linux router, the tethered devices is NAT'ed

    not looked at the specs but surely the pad bit is directly linked to the phone through some asus connector port, with video feed and touch info all being relayed directly to the device.
