We got our first look at the upgrade to the Transformer Prime at CES, all the way back in January, and were impressed by its use of a full HD screen (1920 x 1200, to be precise). Asus says it’ll be the first Android tablet to rock that many pixels.
The Transformer Infinity features Gorilla Glass 2 and, like all Transformer slates, can be twinned with a QWERTY keyboard dock that converts it into a notebook-style device, boosting the battery as a nice bonus. Asus reckons you’ll get up to 14 hours of on-the-go use from the Infinity with the dock attached (as opposed to 9.5 hours without it).
There’s a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, an 8-megapixel main camera, 32GB or 64GB capacities, USB and SD card ports – all squeezed into an 8.5mm-thin body.
We had previously heard that the Transformer Infinity would be priced at €600 for a 64GB Wi-Fi version (around £480 at the current exchange rate), but an actual UK price is yet to be confirmed.
