Apple ain’t the only one who can make pixelicious gadgets. Asus has been at the forefront of the Android tablet scene, and its forthcoming Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 — basically, a souped-up version of the top-rated Transformer Prime tablet — packs a 1,920-by-1,200 resolution into a 10.1-inch Super IPS+ display that’s rated for 600 nits of brightness. That 224ppi isn’t quite up to the iPad’s 264ppi, but it’s a hair better than the new Macbook Pro screen that’s been drawing rave reviews.
The Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 also sports a slight boost to the clock speed of its Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and slightly faster RAM than the Transformer Prime, The Verge reports. It also introduces a plastic strip to the formerly 100 percent aluminum body, presumably to help alleviatethe GPS woes that plagued the Transformer Prime after it launched.
An LTE-enabled model sporting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 rather than a Tegra 3 is slated to appear, but the only pricing and release dates Asus have owned up to so far have been for the Wi-Fi variants, which will hit stores shelves the week of July 16th in 32GB and 64GB for $500 and $600, respectively. The highly-regarded keyboard dock will set you back another $150 smackers.
