Take the Motorola Atrix 4G and its innovative laptop dock, and replace the laptop with a tablet and you get the rumored Asus Padfone. Asus is expected to unveil the Padfone at Computex this week, and it looks very interesting indeed. What the Padfone does is extend the smartphone's display when needed into what looks like a 7 or 10-inch touchscreen. The phone becomes the tablet's processor and storage, although almost certainly the tablet has its own battery to power that big screen.

We will keep our eyes on the news from Computex to find out what platform is powering the Asus Padfone. It's most likely to be running Android, but it can't run Honeycomb on the phone so perhaps it will have Gingerbread on board?
