The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is finally making its way to the United Kingdom after launching in the United States and other parts of Europe earlier this month. You’ll be able to pick one up from Amazon.co.uk on August 31, and prices start at £599 (approx. $930).
It’s unclear at this point what you’ll actually get for your money, however. Engadget reports that this price tag is for the 64GB model with an included keyboard dock, while Phandroid believes it’s for the 32GB model. We’re certainly hoping Engadget is correct, because £599 for a 32GB tablet isn’t cheap. In fact, that’s £120 (approx. $186) more than Apple’s latest iPad with 32GB of storage.
However, as you’d expect from its slightly elaborate name, the Transformer Pad Infinity does pack some great specifications. In addition to its 10.1-inch Super-IPS+ display (1920 x 1200), there’s a 1.6GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and an LED flash.
The tablet runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but Asus has confirmed that it will get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in “the coming months.”
