03:26PM EST - ZenUI - Android UI layer from ASUS?

03:15PM EST - The TD300 looks a lot like a Zenbook with a detachable display

03:15PM EST - Looks like the CPU is contained within the display chassis (for obvious reasons)

03:14PM EST - Yeah it looks like a single CPU in the chassis, not sure why Bay Trail was pictured, supports up to a Core i7

03:13PM EST - Renee James, Intel's President, just took the stage

03:13PM EST - Not sure about the BayTrail comment earlier though, ASUS isn't saying anything about why BT was pictured

03:12PM EST - Starts at $599

03:12PM EST - Neither Android on top of Windows nor Windows on top of Android, no emulation going on here

    Wow, $100-$250 outright ownership for mid to high end performance phones? Even if all the specs aren't bleeding edge that would be insane. I don't believe it. Reply

    So no release date on Padfone? Reply

    Can't wait for a review on the monitor. Maybe the TN panel is worth it. Reply
