Most of the new Android tablets Asus unveiled this summer are entry-level models with Intel Atom Bay Trail processors and 1280 x 800 pixel displays. But if you prefer tablets with full HD screens, Asus has you covered.
The company’s new Transformer Pad TF303 line of Android tablets feature 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel displays. They’re not yet available in the US, but Mobile Geeks reports that at least two versions of the Transformer Pad TF303 should be available in Europe this September for 299 Euros and up (That’s just under $400 US).
The Asus Transformer Pad tablets are defined by the optional keyboard docks that let you use the devices like notebooks. I recently reviewed the Transformer Pad TF103 and found the tablet to be nice, but I didn’t find the keyboard all that useful.
As for the new models, the Asus Transformer Pad TF303CL features an Intel Atom Z3745 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB to 32GB of storage, and a 1920 x 1200 pixel display. It’s basically what you’d get if you took the TF103 and added more memory and a higher-resolution display.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF303K, on the other hand, features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro ARM-based processor. It also has a full HD display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
Both tablets feature Google Android 4.4 KitKat software with the Asus ZenUI user interface. The ARM-based tablet should be available in September for 299 Euros without the keyboard or 349 Euros with it. The Intel-powered TF303CL will sell for 349 Euros without a keyboard and 399 Euros with one.
