asus-transformer-pad-infinity-pi

Perhaps the most impressive product to have come from ASUS’s event at Computex 2013 is this; the Transformer Pad Infinity. This device is an absolute stunner. Powered by a 1.9GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 Cortex-A15 quad-core CPU — which has a 72 core GPU — and features a stunning 10.1-inch WQXGA 2560×1600 IPS display which will undoubtedly look amazing in the flesh.

Other specifications include 2GB of RAM, 5MP and 1.2MP cameras, USB 3.0 port and SD card slot, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n with Miracast support, Bluetooth 3.0, and 32GB of internal storage.

Again, there’s no official press release for this product yet. Not launching in Australia, says ASUS.

    After my Transformer Infinity you can count me out. At the very least I will be waiting a considerable amount of time to ensure it can SAFELY have a different ROM applied, as well as performing as I would expect a premium tablet to. Also, the screen cracking when I opened the device (in dock) after a couple of months shattered the likelihood of me buying another ASUS product. It would have to get unbelievably good reviews and a few months of excellent feedback on XDA to get me on board.

    They won’t catch me again after the Transformer Prime – one of the worst duds I ever purchased!

    OMG! You mean *I* was Jerry Shen all along?????

    The main problem with this will be the Tegra 4. If it was anything like the Tegra 3 (original Infinity) I wouldn’t even bother looking at it.

    No 802.11ac? Odd considering the HTC One and Samsung GS4 have it. Not that it’d be a dealbreaker for a lot of people but I guess it would have been good.

      The Miracast support is 802.11ac

      • PuGZoR

        I don’t think so, I think they’re independent technologies (one is a standard, one is mostly software with hardware requirements). Miracast has been around before the 802.11ac standard was adopted. I believe high speed 802.11n devices can support Miracast in certain circumstances. Happy to be proved wrong though – got a link?

        EDIT: From what I read, think of Miracast as an alternative to Apple’s Airplay, rather than a standard for hardware. Not 100% but it appears to be a compression/encoding type technology.

      I’ll be more worried about the I/O, I hope it’s improved

    And if they use cheap slow NAND it will all be worthless, here is hoping that they have learned from past mistakes

      Too many people care only about clock speed and resolution, when actual day-to-day use also depends on many other aspects like storage speed and memory bandwidth.

      Admittedly you won’t be getting SSD-class NAND in a sub $400 device, but the fact that they’ve pointed out the eMMC storage on the presentation slide gives hope that they have learnt their lesson this time.
