Today, at Computex 2013 held in Taipei, Asus announced the successor to last year’s Transformer tablet, and it’ll be called ‘Transformer Pad Infinity’ (2013).
The tablet is quite a stunner. It’s got a 10.1-inch IPS display, touting 2560 x 1600 resolution (229ppi), which is higher than the iPad’s Retina display. Asus promises the display can offer wide viewing angles up to 178-degrees. We’ve been seeing a lot of high-res displays lately. Behind the display there’s a 5-megapixel camera, and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front. Here, the high-res display will be powered by a 1.9 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. With such power, the company claims, the tablet is capable to output 4K video through its HDMI-out port.
The tablet will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It comes with 32GB of storage expandable via SD card slot in the dock. The tablet also has a USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 3.0, an SDXC card reader and extra battery in the full QWERTY keyboard dock. It’s expected to go on sale in Q3 this year. There’s no official word on it’s pricing.
