‘Break the rules’.

Asus has dropped a teaser for their Computex announcement for tomorrow (in all it’s silhouette glory). The image, below, shows a large tablet like device with a phone on top of it. The text accompanying the image says “Break the rules: Pad or Phone? How about both?”

It is not clear (aka there is no clear leak yet) of what the product is, though it is being dubbed as PadFone – which we sincerely hope is not the name of the final product. From the image, it seems like the tablet will work as a docking station to support and sync with the smartphone, also providing the tablet with calling capabilities.

In another teaser image, a silhouette of a tablet is shown , with accompanying text “Break the rules: A tablet that jumps at you.”, suggesting 3D capability – making it the first 3D tablet in the market, if so.

Following the news (and probably tired of all the silhouettes), a source close to NoteBook Italia passed up an image of the actual device, in full light and color. The image is oddly cut and still doesn’t do much for our curiosity, though at least we know it’s Android based.

Asus is all set to announce the new device at Computex 2011 tomorrow. Stay tuned.
