The Asus Transformer Pad 300 tablet operating on a quad core processor is slated to be available in the US from April 22 onwards. Functioning on the 4G LTE network, it is being cited to serve as a laptop replacement for potential users.
The device sports a 10.1-inch multi-touch display offering 1280 × 800p resolutions and features the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor. There’s an 8MP snapper on the flip side as well a 1.2MP sensor on the front panel. It houses a micro-HDMI port for hooking up the device to larger displays like TV sets or other types of screens and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The slab in question offers a battery life of almost 10 hours that is expandable up to 15 hours via an extra battery coming in with the choice of a keyboard dock.
This tablet was first introduced at the MWC 2012 along with the Transformer Pad Infinity. As reported on PCWorld, the price of the slab will be disclosed on April 22. However pre-orders for the same are being accepted by BJs for a price of $399 in case of the 32GB variant. Playing successor to Eee Pad Transformer Prime, we can very well note that the Eee moniker is not to be seen on this one. For all we know, the company could have possibly done away with the prefix.
Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will happen to be up for grabs starting April 22, while the 10-inch counterpart will ship on May 13. Many slabs feasting on ICS priced below $250 are expected to be retailed sometime soon as well.
The official Asus Transformer Pad 300 price and availability details are expected to surface at the time of launch.
