Transformer TF701T
Announced back at IFA in September, Asus has today announced that the TF701T Transformer will be available from Asus resellers and selected Harvey Norman stores later this month.

With a beautiful 2560×1600 resolution 10.1″ IPS display the TF701T is a very good looking tablet, especially with the familiar Asus Transformer concentric ring design etched into the durable aluminium back. As a transformer, the tablet also comes with docking station that contains a large battery that will allow all day use.

With a Quad-Core Tegra 4 SoC onboard the TF701 shouldn’t be lacking in terms of speed, especially for the multimedia side of things which Asus assure us will deliver a brilliant experience when paired with the ASUS SonicMaster audio technology speaker. The Tegra 4 with 72 core GeForce GPU will also output 4K resolution through the wired HDMI connection.

As well as the Dock which includes a full-size keyboard, USB 3.0 port and microSDXC card slot. Asus will be offering more accessories through their online accessory shop once the tablet reaches the market.

The Asus TF701T will be available from the end of February in Dark Grey for $799.

    Mid-April now.. I am guessing this is dead in the water. Not much point releasing or purchasing when it’s 8 months after announcement.

    I had a TF301 which ended up with a cracked screen without receiving much abuse. But worse, it had to be sent back for repairs twice and the tool Asus provide to unlock the boot loader didn’t work which meant I was stuck on the Asus-provided Android version. It could have been a great tablet, but there were just too many problems. I really liked the extended battery keyboard, though.

    But all in all, I wouldn’t be prepared to pay $800 for an Asus device after my experience.

    The TF700 was literally the worst Android device I have ever owned. Usually choppy and laggy performance and the screen cracked whilst I was opening it one day… I couldn’t believe it. I won’t be buying one of these despite my love for a battery extending keyboard… But I will watching the comments of those who do!
