Asus’ Transformer Pad tablet-notebook hybrid will retail in Australia this week following its launch at Mobile World Congress in February.

The standalone 10.1-inch tablet will retail from $499, and from $599 with the docking station, in blue, white and red, from Wednesday.

The TF300T Transformer Prime weighs in at 635g with a 9.9mm width, and features a USB 2.0 port, HDMI port and microSD card reader.

The device is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 12-core GeForce GPU.

It boasts full HD 1080p video playback on the rear 8MP camera, and also includes a front-facing 1.2MP camera.

Asus has included its own SonicMaster audio technology, and is claiming up to 15 hours battery life when docked; ten when not.

The device will be sold through Dick Smith, Harvey Norman and JB HiFi.
