Default Things you've learnt so far about PadFone?

Thought it could be useful to have a thread about tips we've discovered in use with the padfone.
FWIW, I have the set of the phone, station, keyboard dock and stylus.

1. As of firmware version 4.04, the (phone-tablet-keyboard) combination can read and write to NTFS-formatted USB sticks, CF cards and HDD's.
(=No need to carry a netbook to clear my camera card when travelling now!)

2. The keyboard-combo will charge the stylus, but only when the phone is docked (ie you can't use the phone by itself and have the keyboard/tablet charge the stylus).
Even with this limitation, I can see this being useful when travelling.

Any other tips in use or configuration?

This isn't really a padfone thing but did you know that when you are in Airplane mode you can turn wifi back on and use GPS. I just came back from the UK and I did this the entire time I was there so I did not have any phone or data roaming charges.
