Asus introduces two new tablets at MWC under the name "Transformer Pad"

Asus
We’ve seen some amazing products this year at Mobile World Congress from companies like Huawei and HTC. Now it’s time for Asus to shine at this mega event with their new offerings, as they told us. The first thing Asus did was change the name of their tablet line to “Transformer Pad,” and they introduced the Infinity Series under this line. The Infinity Series offers high end tablets with either Tegra 3 or Snapdragon S4 processors.

First, we have the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700 series, or just the TF700T for short. As far as the specs go, users can either get it with a Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 processor with an LTE radio, or the Tegra 3 version, which is available in Wi-Fi only models. 3G/4G versions will feature S4 chip. So basically, if you want a Tegra 3 version, you’ll have to live without those 4G speeds. Other goodies include an 8MP f/2.2 camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 Super IPS+ Gorilla Glass 2 display, 1GB of RAM, and an HDMI port. In true Asus style, the tablet comes with its own keyboard dock as well.

The next tablet is the Asus Transformer Pad 300 series, which is actually the TF300T, a tablet we saw a few weeks ago. Asus is calling it a “stylish and affordable” tablet. It’s packing an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 10.1-inch 1280×800 IPS display, and it will be launched in WiFi and LTE versions as well. It has a battery life of 10 hours, which can be extended to 15 hours with the optional keyboard dock. Asus will make it available in red, blue, and white.

With that being said, we’re fairly impressed with Asus and what they’ve brought to the table at MWC, but we want to hear from you. Are these tablets what you were hoping for? Are you more interested in the Eee Pad Memo ME370T?
