ASUS is ready to deliver a new model in its popular Transformer tablet line. The Transformer Infinity TF700 should ship in mid-July. Pricing will start at $500 for a WiFi model with 32 GB storage. A GPS chip is built in to all Transformer Infinity models.
The embargo on reviews of the Transformer Infinity has been lifted, and several sites have posted their impressions. Here are links to a few:
The Transformer Infinity upgrades the Transformer Prime TF200 (introduced in December 2011) in several ways:
-- processor bump from 1.3 to 1.6 GHz
-- screen resolution increased from 1280 x 800 to 1900 x 1200 pixels
-- WiFi and GPS signal issues experienced by Prime owners have been resolved
ASUS makes an optional keyboard dock that "transforms" the tablet into a reasonable facsimile of a notebook. The dock offers a full physical keyboard and multi-touch enabled touchpad, plus full size USB and SD card slots.
The optional Transformer Dock will cost $150. The new Transformer Infinity will work with the Dock designed to work with the Transformer Prime TF200.
