Asus has begun sending out invitations for its latest event taking place on October 16.  The star of the event will be the Asus Padfone 2, which is a tablet/smartphone hybrid.  The original model was only made available in few markets, but if the Padfone 2 offers a global roll-out, it may gain traction in a crowded mobile sector.

In any case, the event is scheduled to take place on October 16 in Taipei, Taiwan and Milan, Italy.  It is interesting to see Asus hosting two events simultaneously.  While we do not know too much about the Padfone 2 at this time, it is rumored to contain a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor.  Hopefully, it offers high-end hardware and software with a well-integration tablet docking station.

More information will be made available on October 16 during the event, which we will recap.
