ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Released!

Finally after being announced at CES its finally landing in the hands of consumers. Otherwise known as the TF700 this tablet is a step up compared to ASUS' Prime. With a starting price of $499 you do get a lot of bang for your buck, for example instead of a paltry 1280x800 screen this tablet has a resolution of 1920x1200 just like the Acer Iconia Tab A700. Plus you get a rear 8MP camera capable of taking video at 1080p and a front facing 2MP camera. Plus the Tegra 3 in this tablet will ramp up its clock speed to 1.7GHz when 1 core is being used and 1.6GHz when 2 or 4 cores are being used. The display being used on this is a Super IPS+ display so you can expect wide viewing angles, and vibrant colors. Plus the tablet ships with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, not the DDR2 found in most mobile devices. In Quadrant this device scored about 500 points more than the Prime, of course you could go out and buy the Acer Iconia Tab A700 for 50 bucks cheaper, but you'd probably have a better experience buying the TF700. But for users who already have the Prime there isnt much reason to upgrade rather than the faster CPU.
