Hands On With the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinityby Anand Lal Shimpi on February 27, 2012 7:57 AM EST
Earlier today we published the specs and a first look at ASUS' Transformer Pad Infinity, a 10.1-inch Android 4.0 tablet with a 1920 x 1200 Super IPS+ display. As a recap, the Infinity is ASUS' new high-end tablet slotting in above the Transformer Prime. On the opposite end of the spectrum is the newly announced Transformer Pad 300, which takes the place of the original Eee Pad Transformer in the sub-$500 market.
Shortly after ASUS' MWC press conference we spent some time with the LTE version of the TF Pad Infinity. The LTE version uses Qualcomm's dual-core MSM8960 (Krait) instead of NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3. Armed with more memory bandwidth we were curious to see how the SoC handled the increased demands of the higher resolution screen. The UI was still fairly smooth but it's clear that the software is very early.
The display itself looked extremely sharp, something we noticed back at CES as well when the tablet was simply known by its model number: TF700T. Check out the gallery below for some shots of the Infinity.

jeremyshaw - Monday, February 27, 2012 - linkIt's thinner than the MBP13's hump, and lighter, too (all while running a full speed dual core). It's the Vaio Z2, and I think Anandtech has a writeup on it. Cliffs: Screen second to none on 13" laptops. External HD6650m dock is good idea, but flawed - like many points of the laptops.
efficacyman - Thursday, March 1, 2012 - linkIts great that the display is fantastic, but how is the keyboard and trackpad? I know that the initial transformer did not have the best trackpad. It would be nice if ASUS would go all out on the trackpad as they are doing with the display or allow 3rd party manufacturers to make a better keyboard dock.
