ASUS have just one-two punched the world and renamed their Transformer series of tablets the 'Transformer Pads', on top of this, they've announced the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity tablet. What does the Infinity have, that the other Transformer tablets are jealous of?


Well, it sports a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 Super IPS+ display, 600 nits out door readable, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2 display, Android 4.0 ICS, either Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip, or NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, up to 10 hours of battery life, and up to 16 hours when docked, just 586g in weight, Wi-Fi, 32/64GB of storage (Wi-Fi only), with the 3G/LTE version sporting 16, 32 and 64GB variants.

The new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is shaping up to be the tablet to own, but my thoughts on it are ASUS are pushing out too many tablets and fragmenting their customers away. Apple have the market because people can walk in and look at just one tablet: iPad 2. Not Transformer, Transformer Prime TF201, Transformer Prime TF700T, Transformer Pad 300, Transformer Pad Infinity. Although, this tablet does look like a hot mess, in a very good way.
