Asus Adds Transformer Pad Infinity Tablet To Portfolio

Asus has added a new high end tablet to its portfolio, the Transformer Pad Infinity, but hasn't confirmed when it will be available in the UK and at what cost.

The Infinity will be the new top of the range tablet, pushing the Transformer Prime into mainstream territory; while the latter has a 1280x800 pixels display, the Infinity ups the ante with a 1920x1200 display with Gorilla Glass 2.

However, the Prime uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset while the Infinity either comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 SoC, which is part of the company's S4 range or a higher clocked Tegra 3 chipset (1.6GHz rather than 1.3GHz).

The rest of the Pad Infinity features include 1GB RAM, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 8GB lifetime Asus Web Storage, a front facing two megapixel camera, an eight megapixel one at the rear, HDMI port, microSD card reader, a 10 hour battery life (thanks to a 25Whr battery) and will come in Amethyst Gray, Champagne Gold.

As for the Prime, the Pad Infinity can be connected to a keyboard mobile dock which has a USB 2.0 port, a SD card reader as well as a 22Whr battery that pushes the battery life of the tablet to 16 hours.
