Unable to tell at this stage, I'm afraid: my phone is away for repair (just wouldn't start one day
As noted, haven't been able to load any tablet-specific apps: intend to try Anges' advice as soon as I get it back.
OTOH, phone apps generally run on both the phone and tablet, but most 3rd-party ones require restarting after docking or undocking (there is a toggle in settings to make selected apps persistent: works well for things like text tones etc that don't require a user interface..not so good on keyboard apps etc: in tablet mode, they end up about 1/4 the size they should be until restarted! <grin>)
Once restarted, tho, most apps seem to play nicely with either the large tablet or (relatively) small phone screen.
I read somewhere that Asus is making an api available for developers to dynamically resize their apps when docking/undocking: hopefully the PadFone will take off and developers will write for it!
