ASUS is giving American tablet fans more than the PadFone X -- it just revealed at its CES event that the PadFone Mini will also be coming to the US for $249. The 4-inch smartphone and 7-inch tablet combo that will reach the US isn't quite the same as what surfaced in Taiwan, though. This version touts a phone with 1.6GHz dual-core Atom Z2560 chip, 8GB of storage and an 800 x 480 display rather than the Snapdragon, 16GB of space and 960 x 540 display from before. ASUS hasn't said exactly when we'll see this new Intel-powered PadFone, but we'll keep you updated.

Update: We've added some hands-on photos, which you can find right after the break. Also, ASUS says that there aren't any current plans to bring the Mini stateside, despite giving the device US pricing.
