The TransPhone is an interesting device, since it’s very much like the ASUS Padfone, but not quite so, since it’s cheaper and its design is a bit different. The TransPhone 2 is the follow-up to the original model, keeping the affordability and adding a dual core CPU in the mix.


This is still a midrange device, one that involves an 8 inch IPS screen and slimmer body than the predecessor, at 8.5 mm in thickness. The tablet part is 10.5 mm thick and the basic TransPhone 2 features a 4 inch 845 x 480 pixel TFT display, a 1 GHz dual core CPU and a 5 megapixel camera.

There’s also a front cam, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on board storage and 8 GB of internal preinstalled SD card memory. Finally, we get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on it and the TransPad slate supports a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, in case you’re wondering. It also has a 4000 mAh battery, for a total of 5,500 mAh. You should also know that the retail price of the hybrid is $299 or so, plus import duty and sales tax.

There’s also the TransPhone 2 Pro, with 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and 32GB preinstalled SD memory, priced at $399.
