Taiwanese manufacturer Asus has sent out invitations for the unveiling of the PadFone 2, the successor to its ambitious PadFone product, a device capable of switching between smartphone, tablet, and laptop modes. According to a picture published by Italian site Notebook Italia, the event will take place on October 16th, running simultaneously in Taipei and Milan. Recently-leaked benchmarks suggest that the PadFone 2 will come equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, but not much else is known about the device — the teaser image included on the invite closely resembles the smartphone portion of the original PadFone.
