A day before the launch of Computex but after days of speculations on how ASUS’ Padfone will actually look, the following pictures of the ASUS PadFone below leaked out ahead of schedule. Set to be launched at Computex 2011 tomorrow morning, the PadFone consists of an Eee Pad Transformer style slate with a section at the back that opens up to accept a smartphone. Once docked – with what looks to be HDMI and USB ports slotting into the side of the handset – the tablet offers a lot more screen space and, we’re guessing, a fair chunk of added battery life.

Specifications aren’t clear at this stage, but from the comparison photos with the Eee Pad Transformer, the PadFone seems to have a 10.1-inch display with almost same dimensions. A hole on the rear hatch allows the phone’s 5-megapixel camera to be used, and hopefully it’ll be capable of better results than the unimpressive camera on the Transformer.

Connectivity on the slate itself is minimal, though it does look like ASUS has given it stereo speakers and a front-facing webcam. OS is uncertain, but the PadFone is possibly running Ice Cream Sandwich since that will be the flavor of Android which brings together the tablet and phone strands, and will thus suit both the handset-sized touchscreen when the phone alone is used, and the 10.1-inch slate screen when it’s docked.

We should find out more tomorrow at ASUS’ morning press event.
