More ASUS announcements! Today, ASUS introduced us to an updated Transformer Pad Infinity that comes as a successor to their 2012 device. This new Transformer Pad Infinity comes with some new specs such as a 2560×1600 display and Tegra 4 processor. The full changelist can be seen right here:
- 10.1-inch 2560×1600 IPS display
- 1.9GHz quad-core Tegra 4 processor
- 32GB built-in storage, SD card slot
- 2GB RAM
- 5-megapixel rear, 1.2-megapixel front cameras
- 4K Ultra HD output over HDMI
That’s all well and good and should provide a nice tablet for consumers who want one of ASUS’s tablets that fits into a special keyboard dock. But another device was revealed that’s even more interesting the Transformer Book Trio. The Transformer Book Trio is really the first device of its kind and ASUS says that it can serve as a tablet, a notebook, or a desktop thus hearkening back to the “Trio” name. The Trio has two operating systems inside with both Windows 8 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean giving us a device that geeks have always dreamed about. As far as processors go, there are actually two buried inside the Trio with a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor powering Windows 8 and a 2.0GHz Intel Atom processor keeping Android powered. The display is a 1920×1080 11.6″ display so it’s quite roomy. The tablet itself features 64GB storage while the keyboard dock has an additional 750GB. While we don’t know battery life for just the tablet, ASUS claims that you can get fifteen hours of battery life out of the machine with the keyboard dock attached.
ASUS has a pair of incredible devices here and if they can give them a fair price, they could be the company’s lifeline back into the tablet game. While I’m personally ecstatic about the Transformer Book Trio, I want to know what you guys think of these new tablets. Hit up the comments below and let us know!
