The PadFone X and its tablet dock launched exclusively for AT&T in mid-2014 with a retail price around $550. Up-front, with a two-year contract, Big Blue subscribers could have paid $199 or a couple of different combinations with AT&T Next.
Now, almost a year after the device was initially announced, the ASUS PadFone X 16GB with its tablet dock has shown up on eBay with a cheaper price tag for a limited run. The 16GB PadFone X is available for $199.99 without any kind of contract, and it’s the unlocked AT&T version, which means if you want to use it on another GSM carrier like T-Mobile, that’s certainly an option.
As far as specifications go, the PadFone X features a 5-inch FHD display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz under the hood. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the back, with a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter on the other side. It features 16GB of built-in storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 2300mAh battery.
The tablet dock boasts a 9-inch display, with a resolution of 1900×1200. There’s a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, and the battery inside is 4900mAh.
The whole package for $199 is quite the deal, especially for someone who’s looking for a new smartphone and tablet. Do you plan on taking advantage of the deal?
