At MWC, ASUS came out swinging for the fences with some incredible Android-powered tablets. The first is the Transformer Pad Infinity, featuring a sharp 1080p Super IPS+ HD display, protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2. Rather than carry over the same processor from the Transformer Prime tablet, ASUS is packing a zippy, 1.6GHz quad-core Tegra 3, 1GB of RAM, a nice 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting and 64GB of internal storage. There is a hitch, the Tegra 3 processor will be limited to the WiFi only version, the cellular version will come packing Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor as it support LTE.
The other tablet that ASUS debuted, was the Transformer Pad 300, which is more or less a more cost effective model when compared to the Infinity. The 300 will use the same NVIDIA Tegra 3, but will drop the HD display and instead stick with the same 1200 x 800 display as the Transformer Prime. It will also only be available in a 16GB (storage) option, again keeping it affordable.
ASUS will be releasing the Infinity Pad in the second quarter, with the 300 following up later this year.
