Asus were busy bees at Computex recently. Not only did they put paid to rumours that have been circulating for many months concerning Google Nexus Tablet, by hinting that they were the chosen manufacturer to build what is expected to be a supreme machine, they also presented their next Transformer Pad.
Asus Google Nexus Tablet is highly anticipated to launch sometime the end of June, although if the UK will see this device quite this soon is still unclear at this point. It is expected to be priced in an affordable bracket at around $199, no more than £150 GBP. Other affordable tablets on their way include Acer Iconia Tab A110.
The news just gets better, as the specs are set to be bang up-to-date, at least where the processor and operating system are concerned. Like Iconia Tab A110, Google Nexus tablet will have a Tegra 3 chipset under the bonnet, giving you a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz. It's also rumoured that it will ship with Google's latest OS, Android 5.0 (Jellybean), whether this comes to pass we will just have to wait and see.
It's likely to be a 7 inch tablet with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels and 1 GB of storage. With the advent of affordable high spec tablets at affordable prices Apple is sure to enjoy a dose of extra fierce competition this summer.
Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) is set to offer consumers a 10 inch IPS+ screen, which will provide better visibility in sunny outdoor situations, with a 1080p resolution consisting of 1920 x 1280 pixels. Its dimensions will measure 180.8 mm x 263 mm x 8.5 mm, and it'll weigh in at 585 grams. There will be a 2 MP front facing snapper and an 8 MP rear facing camera complete with LED flash and autofocus.
The pricing for Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is likely to be similar to previous Transformers, around the $899 (£550 - £600) mark. This price will include both the tablet and dock. As with all Asus Transformers, the use of the dock will add hours to your battery life, taking it from around 10 hours to about 16 hours.
It's set for a June release in the US and a July release in Australia. As soon as we have a better idea of a UK release we will let you know.
