COmputex Asus TF700

All week, Android Authority was live on-the-ground at Computex 2012 in Taipei, represented by our own editor-in-chief, Darcy Lacouvee. He’s got hands-on time with some amazing devices!

ASUS has slowly been cornering the Android tablet market with some amazing options such as the Transformer Prime and the Transformer Pad TF300. But ASUS has definitely saved the best for last, with the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T. First seen at CES 2012 back in January, the device has since undergone a name-change, with information on the device variants including a WiFi-only version, an HSPA+ version, and an LTE version.

As a recap, here are the specifications of the device:

  • 10.1″ multi-touch capacitive Super IPS+ display
  • 1920×1200 resolution
  • 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor(for 4G LTE), 1.6 Ghz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 (WiFi only, WiFI + HSPA+)
  • 16/32/64GB internal storage, expandable via microSD
  • 25Whr (6757 mAH) battery
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera

As expected, the LTE specific model headed for the US market will feature a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor because of the incompatibility issues between LTE radios and quad-core processors.

Below is a short video of Darcy’s hands-on experience with ASUS’ flagship tablet:

The device reviewed in the video is the WiFi-only version dubbed the Infinity TF700T. As you can see, the Nvidia Tegra 3-powered device is very smooth and fast, and the high-resolution IPS+ display immediately stands out. Another impressive specification is the battery life, giving you 9-10 hours in “tablet mode” and almost 14 hours when connected to the keyboard dock.

The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity has been making the rounds of trade-shows and electronics fairs for a while now, and hopefully the device will now be available soon.
