The Asus Transformer Pad 300 – the plastic-shelled counterpart to the Eee Pad Transformer Prime – will hit US store shelves on April 22.
Like the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad 300 sports a 10.1in, 1280x800px screen, and uses a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 1GB RAM to drive its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. It also carries an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front camera alongside micro HDMI and microSD ports.
The Transformer Pad 300 is available with 3G and LTE connectivity options, unlike the Wi-Fi only Transformer Prime.
The plastic shell may solve the Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity problems that have bedevilled some Transformer Prime users.
Pricing across the range has yet to be revealed, though US retailer BJs has the 32GB model up for preorder priced at US$400 (albeit without the keyboard dock).
Asus Australia did not respond to confirmation on Australian pricing and availability by the time of publication.
Asus is also gearing up to launch its higher-specced Transformer Pad Infinity, which comes with a higher-resolution 1920x1200px display.
