After the success of the Eee Pad Transformer tablet from Asus, the follow-up Transformer Prime was released with a quad-core CPU and Android ICS (4.0). Now we have another two-piece design form the Taiwan technology giant with further improved specs, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. Released just last month, the world’s most powerful android tablet to date can be had for as little as $479.99 new, or $336.40 used, from Amazon.
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 comes in at 10.35 x 7.11 x 0.33 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.31 lbs, making it 10% thinner and 10% lighter than Apple’s new iPad. The high-quality aluminium casing gives the TF700 a really solid feel, with the same circular pattern as it’s predecessors, it really does look great.
The TF700 comes in two colours, Champagne Gold or Amethyst Gray. The selection of ports and buttons hasn’t changed much, except some of them have been moved around. The Power and Volume buttons are now found on the top edge, with the Micro HDMI, headphone jack, and Micro SD card slot on the left. The proprietary connector for charging, syncing, and docking is still on the bottom.
There’s a 2MP front-facing webcam tucked into the aluminium bezel, flip the tablet over and you’ll see the same 8MP camera an LED flash that the TF300 has.
