ASUS PadFone 32GB - £383.94 inc. shipping @ Amazon Italy (£504.05 with Station Dock)

Not a device that most people are on the lookout for, but the ASUS PadFone on Amazon Italy has recently had a price cut. This appears to be the 32GB version.

For those of you that don't know, the PadFone is a phone from ASUS which can be placed in a dock to become a tablet, which can be expanded further with a keyboard dock (as you'd expect with other ASUS tablets)

You can also couple it with the station dock for a total of £504.05, a fair bit cheaper than what UK retailers are offering for the 16GB version. Expansys are charging £579.99 for 16GB phone + dock, while mobicity are charging £649.95(?!)

It was released in Taiwan a few months back and has been popping up in select places in Europe. I'm not exactly sure what's happening with the release but I'm under the impression that the release has been hindered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 shortage.

As far as I know there are currently no contracts with the PadFone.

i know it is a shame i heard of the s4 shortages too the htc one s now has a s3 because of those shortages and a lot of phones like the sony xperia T has delays due to the s4 shortages. i really wanted this to be my next contract phone as my contract has run out now and i am looking around. ahh well sim only deal for me till some thing "note"worthy comes out

Wasn't too impressed with the 2nd one to be honest (no keyboard dock AFAIK, proprietary connections while the first has micro-HDMI/USB), but I imagine that the price for this one will drop when the 2nd one comes out.
