ASUS announces new Transformer Pad Infinity variant with Tegra 4 processor

ASUS-Transformer-Pad-Infinity

 

The original Transformer Pad Infinity was one hell of a tablet when it was introduced with the blazing fast Tegra 3 chip running the show, but ASUS felt that Computex 2013 was time to introduce a new variant of the device with updated specs. Right off the bat is the inclusion of NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processsor and its 72 GPU cores to help provide some insane graphics. And speaking of which— ASUS has upped the IPS display by including a resolution of 2,500 x 1,600, placing it in direct competition with other premium tablets like the Nexus 10. Rounding out the improvements are a redesigned keyboard dock with a multi-touch touchpad, USB 3.0 and an SDXC card reader.

No word on pricing or the release date just yet, but we’re hopeful that the tablet won’t be too unreasonably priced and will have a release date within the next few months or so.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Jelly Bean update delayed, should arrive ‘early next week’

Owners of the ASUS Transformer Prime are already enjoying the sweet taste of Jelly Bean, but a new development has caused the update for the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity to be delayed. In a forum post on XDA-Developers, ASUS Technical Marketing Manager Gary Key explained that the company had run into a few technical problems with the keyboard when accessing the recently updated Facebook application.

“For those users in the US and Canada, the 10.4.4.16 Release should be available early next week. A couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the “Comment” area with Android 4.1. Sorry about the slight delay but this fix needed to be implemented before release.”

As usual, ASUS has provided its user base with insight, complete with a legitimate reason and a new time frame. So, while we may have to wait a few extra days, at least we know the company will be rolling out fully-functioning firmware.

ASUS confirms Jelly Bean for Transformer Prime and Transformer Pad Infinity coming soon

ASUS began rolling out an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Prime in Sweden yesterday, and today the company has followed with a statement regarding the rest of the world.

Watch the ASUS Trasformer Pad Infinity ‘Launch Video’ Sans Launch

When we first saw the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity back at CES we were told that it should make its debut sometime in June. Here we are nearly at the end of June and still no word on the HD tablet from ASUS.  Who knows , maybe they got tied up building the new Nexus tablet for Google’s big unveiling next week? Either way, the TPad Infinity is bound to rear its fancy little head at any point now and a recently leaked promo video may mean that it’s just around the corner.

Some Reddit user posted the link for this video and is referring to it as a “launch video.” I am not sure whether a launch video is going to be 8 minutes long, but it is pretty informative to say the least. There is not much new to be gained from this video but it sure makes the tablet sound and look cool! Now we can only hope that this bad boy sees the light of day sometime soon. Jump past the break to check out this so called Transformer Pad Infinity “launch video” and let us know what you think.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Wins FCC Approval

If you are anything like us, you are looking forward to the release of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T), the 10.1-inch Android tablet boasting an astounding 1920×1200 (1080p) resolution. It has been said that the device would see a European launch on July 10th and the recent FCC approval would put us right on track for a timely release. Sporting the Tegra 3 chipset, the TF700T that was just approved by the FCC is the Wi-Fi only version, the LTE equipped version is still nowhere to be seen. For those of you that are hoping to get your hands on the cellular version of the device, it looks like you will have to wait a bit longer but we imagine it will also be stopping by the FCC in the near future. Let’s just hope it’s sooner rather than later. We will keep you posted.

ASUS Confirms Pricing For Upcoming Padfone, Transformer Pad Infinity 700 And Transformer Pad 300

We are one step closer to a few ASUS jewels landing in the palms of our hands. For starters, we know you have been talking about the PadFone, the most intriguing of the upcoming devices for some time now. Sure there have been pre-orders available for it in Taiwan since earlier in the month, but what about the rest of us? Well for those of you in Europe at least, the wait will not last much longer. While at the ASUS Milan Design Week 2012, ASUS has confirmed the Padfone will arrive in Italy in late May– which is the same time the device should launch elsewhere in Europe. The company even gave details of the upcoming release by highlighting the smartphone and the tablet combo (which will be known as Padfone Station) will go for EUR 699 ($915 USD), while the keyboard (known as the PadFone Dock) will cost EUR 149 more ($195 USD).

ASUS doesn’t stop there either folks. The mouthwatering Transformer Pad Infinity 700 will arrive in Italy on June 10th. Also known as the Transformer Prime HD, it will arrive as a 64GB WiFi-only model for EUR 600 ($785 USD). The keyboard dock accessory will cost EUR 149 ($195) like the PadFone Dock. Oh and those of you looking for something premium, but not too premium will be able to find the Transformer Prime 300 next month for EUR 400 ($525 USD) for the WiFi version and EUR 500 ($655) for the 3G version. Ladies and gents— get ready to break open your wallets and pocketbooks.

ASUS Padphone and Transformer Pad Infinity Receive European Pricing and Availability

Many of you are probably looking forward to getting your hands on one of the new ASUS products like the Padphone or the Transformer Pad Infinity. Although ASUS just revealed European pricing, availability is still a little ways off yet. Notebook Italia is reporting that the 32GB Padphone is scheduled to release in European markets in late May and is going to be pretty expensive. We’re talking 700 euros ($914) expensive, and that doesn’t even include the keyboard dock. The dock is going to cost you an additional 150 euros ($200) if you want to turn your duo into a trio. Still no pricing and availability on the LTE Padphone but it’s believed that it could be out sometime in September.

As far as the Transformer Pad Infinity  goes, the 64GB Wi-Fi version should arrive in European markets on June 10th with the hefty price tag of 600 euros ($780). What ever happened to the previously suggested price of $699 for the 64GB version, ASUS? And since no mention was made of the LTE version, we cant help but wonder if ASUS has delayed its launch for some reason. If we hear anything more we will be sure to let you know.
