The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF300T is a 10 inch Android tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. On paper it looks like a cheaper alternative to the Transformer Prime TF200T, since the new model has a slower processor, less battery life, and a thicker case.
But while Asus hasn’t officially launched the tablet, French retailer Tablette Store has posted a pre-order page for the TF300T, with a 32GB model priced at €499 , or about $654 US. There’s no word on how much a 16GB model might cost.
According to the product listing, the tablet has a 1280 x 800 pixel display and a 1 GHz Tegra 3 processor. It will be available in white, blue, or red colors.
Like other members of the Asus Transformer series, the TF300T will have an optional keyboard dock which you can use to type — and to extend the tablet’s battery life.
Asus also plans to launch a Transformer Prime TF700T model this year. That model will have a high resolution 1920 x 1200 pixel display.
