Asus’ Transformer Pad Infinity today hit Aussie shelves. The tablet/ laptop hybrid is being marketed as the 'world's first' Android tablet with full HD display. Its 1920x1200 screen is compared to the standard 1280x800 resolution seen on similar Android devices.
The device is a 10.1in tablet with attachable keyboard dock. The keyboard converts the tablet to a notebook while also boosting battery.
The tablet can be removed from the dock via a slide unlock button.
Asus claims the dock-attached Transformer Pad Infinity offers up to 14 hours constant use battery life, and 9 hours without it.
The device runs on Android's Ice Cream Sandwich OS but will be updated with Google’s recently announced Jelly Bean OS in the near future.
It is coated in Corning Gorilla Glass and is 8.5mm thick, with Asus' 'concentric circles' design.
The device packs a Nvidia Tegra 3 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 8MP camera, and USB and SD card ports. It is being sold through JB HiFi, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman among other Asus authorised resellers, for $999 for the 64GB model including QWERTY keyboard dock. Asus confirmed to CRN a 32GB model will hit Australian shelves in September, for around $799.
