Asus Transformer Pad tablet with 2560 x 1600 comes to America

The latest Asus Transformer Pad tablet goes on sale in the US soon, and it’s already up for pre-order from at least one retailer. The Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T is a 10 inch Android tablet with a high resolution, 2560 x 1600 pixel display.

Like other members of the Transformer Pad family, the new tablet gets its name from the optional keyboard dock that lets you use the tablet like a laptop. But unlike earlier models, the TF701T has a speedy NVIDIA Tegra 4 ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor.

Asus says it should be available soon from US retailers, although the only store taking pre-orders at the moment is ExcaliberPC.

Update: The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T is now available from Amazon for $449.

Asus Transformer Pad TF701T

A 32GB tablet sells for $449, while you can order a tablet plus keyboard dock for $599.

Asus also makes a 64GB model, but pricing for that version isn’t yet available.

The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T tablet has 2GB of RAM, a microSD card alot, micro HDMI port, and headset jack. It has a 31Whr battery that Asus says is good for up to 13 hours of battery life. If you add the keyboard dock you should get up to 4 more hours of run time.

There’s a full-sized USB 3.0 port in the keyboard dock, as well as a touchpad below the keyboard.

The tablet has a 5MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera and support for Miracast wireless display technology.

Trusted Reviews has posted one of the first reviews of the tablet, and for the most part they seem to like it.

    ASUS should make a full windows 8 tablet with specs like FULL HD display, Bay trail Z3770, 2 GB, 64 GB, good design and build quality for $499.

    They released T100 which is great product at $349/399 but I want high res display and better build quality.
    I am sure they will make more profit on this one than T100.

    Crazy that they just released a Windows 8 transformer with a Bay Trail processor for $349 *with* the keyboard, but they’re keeping the Android transformer at its ultra-premium price point of $600. If they could keep the aluminum and other premium design elements but bring the price down by $100 or more, I think they’d have a huge hit on their hands.

    I agree, why are windows 8 tablets cheaper given and apples to apples hardware set? It seems like a ripoff to me.. this is what pushes people back to laptops or windows tablets… not good for maintaining market share. Some of these windows tablets can do decent gaming as well.. if that picks up steam, Google/Android is In TROUBLE!!

    I’m done with Asus transformers, after had them all including docks for each one, tf101,tf201,tf300t, tf700, all of them had well known I/O issues, GPS issues(Prime),power button broke within 1 week(Tf101), battery on dock came defective and always had an issue when you unplug and plug the dock and battery on dock drained out fast because orange light remained on, when suppose to be off(tf300t),tf700 was such a slow dog for 1080p resolution with the subpar Tegra 3 SoC. Overall the TF300T was the better one from the pack. Currently I have a Xperia Tablet Z, Slatebook X2, Nexus 7 2013 and will get the Nexus 10 2013 when it becomes available.
