Asus Transformer Pad 300 to release on April 22nd in the U.S.



Taiwanese multinational Asus plans to launch their new tablet on April 22nd this year in the U.S. The tablet which was earlier named Transformer Prime has been temporarily tagged as the Asus Transformer Pad 300 due to the pending law suit filed by the toy making company Hasbro in regards to the name used for the tablet. 

The key feature of this tablet is that the company has facilitated the customers to buy an additional optional Android-specific QWERTY keyboard dock. The separate battery installed in the dock increases the tablet’s battery life by 50 percent to 15 hours when it is plugged into it. The price of this device is still uncertain but it is expected to be competitively priced keeping in mind the iPad 2 and the new iPad. The optional keyboard dock is available for $149.99.

The tablet comes with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with a 10.1 inch screen. Under the hood it is equipped with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. It has an 8 MP rear facing camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. It has a 1280×800 resolution on the display and comes in three variants – Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi and 3G and Wi-Fi and 4G LTE. Its additional features include a micro HDMI out port and a micro SD port and it runs on Android 4.0.

Asus is also planning to bring a higher hand version of this tablet into the market. It will be called the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700 Series. It will have a Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and higher resolution 1080p screen. The release dates and price of this tablet has not been revealed.
