Asus, the Taiwan-based computer hardware company, has announced that it will launch Transformer Pad 300 tablet in the UK in May 2012.
The Asus Transformer Pad 300, which was announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2012, is the company’s latest offering in the tablet and notebook category.
The device now comes without the “Eee” branding and includes Nvidia’s Tegra 3 “4-plus-1″ quad-core chip along with a 10in screen. It also features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), dual cameras and Asus Sonicmaster technology, which boasts of ‘impressive ‘sound technology.
The Asus Transformer Pad tablet combines quad-core CPU power with multi-colour style, and productivity with expandability when connected to the mobile dock. The device comes with a 1.2MP front and 8MP rear auto-focus camera with large F/2.2 aperture and exclusive office software.
The Transformer Pad 300 includes Android slate with a detachable keyboard dock for laptop-style key-tapping. With the Pad 300 docked, one can get 15 hours of battery life plus USB and SD card slots. The device also includes a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 8MP rear camera in a 9.9mm thin and 635g plastic-cased tablet.
The tablet will be available to order from Currys and PC World at the beginning of May, priced at £399 including the optional keyboard dock. However, customers can only purchase the royal blue model, with the white model launching in June 2012 and the torch red model being launched later in July 2012.
The Eee Pad Transformer was launched at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas on March 30, 2011.
