Asus transformer series is very popular for the concept of notebook-tablet hybrid approach. After the glory of Transformer Prime, the original one, Asus introduced many other tablets such as Transformer Pad 300 and Transformer Pad 700 Infinity.
Now they have taken it to the next step of evolution with the new Transformer Pad Infinity. It has some promising spec worth taking a look at.
Closer Look at Transformer Pad Infinity
The tablet is just announced and we don’t have official data about it’s weight and dimensions. However the basic design is same as previous Transformer Infinity. So there is a high chance not to see significant fluctuation of weight and dimensions.
Yeah, this is a transformer. So it has keyboard dock which will provide extra battery life, storage as well as connectivity.
Size: 10.1 inches
Protection: Gorilla Glass 2
Technology: Super IPS
Resolution: 2560×1600 px
Sharpness: 299 ppi
No doubt that this is a gorgeous display. The resolution is surpassing famous iPad and on par with Nexus 10. This would be a great tablet for mobile gaming as well as HD media playback.
If you are going to use this outdoors in direct sun light, have no fear. This one has 600 nits of brightness as well as pretty decent contrast/saturation levels.
Processor and Storage
Processor: Nvidia Tegra 4
CPU: 1.9 GHz // Quad Core // Cortex A15
GPU: GeForce 72 Core
RAM: 2 GB // DDR3
Internal Storage: 32 GB
Expandable Storage: SDXC up to 64 GB
That’s lots of power which can dwarf any app or game available on Google Play. You have nothing else to ask for.
OS: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
UI: Asus Wave Share
The exact version of Android is not yet confirmed, but it will be 4.2 or latest. Though I don’t like, it will come with Asus Wave Share theme. But the good thing about Wave Share is that it has very minimum alteration to original UI. And Asus is not too bad with Android OS updates as well.
Primary: 5 MP // LED Flash // 1080p@30fps
Front Facing: 1.2 MP
Camera arrangement is pretty standard, yet all you can ask from a tablet.
Mobile Network: n/a
Wi-Fi: 802.11 a/b/g/n // Dual-band
Too bad that this guy doesn’t have a 3G version, but we can have a hope for future releases. Other than that it comes with high speed connectivity such as dual band Wi-Fi and USB 3.0.
When you transfer media files from PC to tablet via USB it will work like lightning with USB 3.0.
Capacity: 18180 mAh (Tablet + Dock)
The combined capacity of tablet and dock is further increased compared to previous Transformer 700 Infinity. So we can expect even longer battery life with support of energy efficient processes.
The basic look and feel of the tablet is pretty same as predecessor, yet it packs up way better hardware and display. This is one of the most powerful tablets available with highest resolution display ready to win the tablet war.
The official price tag is not yet released but I’m guessing it would sit around $500 without the dock. Pretty neat deal compared to what you are getting.
