Asus has put up a product page for the TF-300T Transformer Pad on their Australian website, the tablet has yet to show up in stores or online yet but their Facebook page lists the 32GB version being priced at $499 sans keyboard dock or $599 with the Keyboard dock and the tablet will be available at major retailers and resellers from next week.
The slightly scaled down version of the Transformer Prime(TF-201) runs Ice-Cream Sandwich and still packs the same Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-Core(Plus One) CPU but scaled it down to 1.2GHz compared to the 1.3GHz on the Transformer Prime. Asus has also gone with a plastic back on the Transformer Pad, perhaps in response to issues with WiFi and GPS connectivity which was experienced by some users of the Transformer Prime which had an aluminium back. Asus has also changed the screen from a Super IPS+ LCD on the Transformer Prime to a IPS LCD on the Transformer Pad to keep the costs down but it still retains a 1280×800 resolution.
With a large amount of people wanting the Transformer Prime but being scared off by the admittedly high price tag, this is certainly a unit to keep an eye on, the $599 with keyboard dock is attractive as it does give up to 15 hours of battery life so that is something to bear in mind. They also have the range of colours as well for those into that type of personalisation, I usually tend to prefer black but different strokes. Head on over to the Asus Website for more info on the specs.
