You can go for the do-it-all PadFone, or you could opt for all new offerings in Asus’ Transformer Pad lineup. Yes, plural. The company just unveiled two very distinct models in front of an eager crowd here in Barcelona – Asus Transformer Infinity series and Asus Transformer 300 – and both look like they’ll make great companions to the already strong Transformer Prime.
First up, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity series is, judging from what we saw, poised to raise the premium quality bar. Asus is actually offering two separate iterations, both equipped with an incredibly sharp Full HD Super IPS+ display (1920 x 1200), Asus SonicMaster Technology, 8-megapixel camera with f2.2 aperture, 5 element lens and 2-megapixel front facing shooter.
But here’s where it starts to differ. The 4G LTE model will come equipped with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 Krait dual-core processor, while the Wi-Fi will feature Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
On the “lower” end of the spectrum, the Asus Transformer 300 will offer a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 10.1-inch IPS display (1280 x 800) in both 4G LTE and WiFi flavors. It, too, will have an 8-megapixel camera with f2.2 aperture, 5-element lens and up to 10 hours battery life (or 15 hours with optional keyboard dock).
As expected, the new addition in the Transformer Pad line will come loaded with Android 4.0 to truly offer a full next-gen experience. What Asus has on offer tablet-wise is definitely a lot to mull over. We’ll be sure to get out hands on each new device as soon as we can, so keep it locked here as we continue our Mobile World Congress coverage. The above picture is the new Transformer Infinity, while the photo below is the Transformer 300.
