Unboxed: Asus Transformer Pad Infinity
Hands-on with Asus' latest tablet/laptop hybrid.
Aug 27, 2012
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is a 10.1in laptop/tablet hybrid that boasts some significant improvements over its predecessor, including a Full HD LED backlit touch screen and Android 4.0.
In addition to the obligatory USB-cum-power cord, Asus has also included a cleaning cloth in the sales package.
Weighing in at 598g, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity has a fair amount of heft to it, yet it remains compact enough to carry around with ease.
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity has a 10.1in LED backlit touch screen with a native resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. It comes with 64GB of internal memory, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor (1.6GHz) and 1GB of DDR3 RAM running on Android 4.0. Other highlights include Corning Gorilla Glass, a microSD card slot and an 8-megapixel camera.

The tablet can be removed from and reattached to the keyboard dock on the fly (i.e. - you don't have to switch the tablet off first).
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity tablet slots into the keyboard accessory via a simple docking mechanism.

Is this the laptop's lid or the tablet's back? In fact, it's both.
Like its Transformer Prime predecessor, the Pad Infinity comes with a rear-facing 8-megapixel AF camera. The front-facing camera has been given a small boost in resolution, jumping from 1.2MP to 2MP.
Like most tablets, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity picked up plenty of fingerprints during use. The included cleaning cloth comes in handy very fast.
The tablet's aluminum rear sports a stylish 'concentric circles' pattern.
