ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, is pleased to announce the release of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (RRP$999 for the 64GB model), the world's first Full HD Android™ tablet. Featuring a Full HD 1920 x 1200 Super IPS+ display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2, ASUS SonicMaster sound technology, Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and an incredibly thin design with a metallic spun finish, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is the perfect companion for the heavy media consumer and sets a new benchmark for mobile entertainment.
As the premium model in the ASUS Transformer Pad series, the new Infinity adopts the same innovative 2-in-1 approach as the Transformer Pad Prime and Transformer Pad 300, delivering both a tablet and netbook in one product by way of a detachable keyboard dock. Developed by the ASUS in house design team with a focus on end-user needs, the Transformer range successfully bridges the gap between a media consumption platform and a productivity tool.
Powerful, Full HD Entertainment
At the heart of the Transformer Pad Infinity is NVIDIA®'s Tegra® 3 T33 4-PLUS-1™ quad-core CPU, which also contains a 12-core GeForce® GPU. The extra battery-saver core on the CPU handles low-power tasks such as active standby, music and video, and is transparent to the OS and applications. Running at 1.6GHz, the Transformer Pad Infinity's quad-core processor drives the incredible Full HD experience, while the display's 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920 x 1200 native resolution and wide 178-degree viewing angle means it's perfect for watching Full HD video, playing the latest HD games and also browsing the web - both indoors and outdoors, thanks to the ultra-bright Super IPS+ technology built into the display. Completing the Transformer Pad Infinity's armory of entertainment-rich features is ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. Tuned by the ASUS Golden Ear team, SonicMaster Sound technology features a combination of advanced hardware and software designed to deliver immersive and lifelike audio.
The Transformer Pad Infinity features the gorgeous metallic spun finish that characterises the ASUS Zen philosophy first unveiled with the ZENBOOK™ and Transformer Pad Prime, and comes in two stylish colors: Amethyst Grey and Champagne Gold. Thanks to the forged aluminum construction, the Transformer Pad Infinity is just 8.5mm thin and weighs only 598g, meaning it can easily be carried around all day. When combined with the ASUS exclusive Mobile Dock, the Infinity turns into a productivity workstation with up to 14 hours of extended battery life - the full QWERTY keyboard and multi-touch touchpad deliver a true notebook experience, while the USB port and SD card slot provide additional storage options for the business-focused user.
Enhanced Camera for Capturing Your Memories
An excellent 8MP rear camera with auto-focus and an LED flash allows the Transformer Pad Infinity to take sharp, vibrant and highly detailed photos thanks to its large F/2.2 aperture, 5-element lens, back-illuminated CMOS sensor, touch-to-focus capabilities, shallow depth of field, low light noise reduction and a wide 75-degree angle of view (28mm equivalent focal length). The rear camera also has the ability to record Full HD 1080p video at 30fps, while the 2MP front camera is ideally suited to video conferencing. With 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, 8GB of free storage on ASUS WebStorage for life, and a variety of external storage options, Transformer Pad Infinity users will be able to store and share their memories anytime, anywhere.
Running the Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity offers unrivaled performance and flexibility with advanced multitasking, rich notifications, customisable home screens and deep interactivity. Combining this with the blisteringly fast NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, Full HD Super IPS+ display, the ultra-slim design and beautiful metallic spun finish makes the Transformer Pad Infinity the perfect mobile entertainment companion.
The Transformer Pad Infinity is the newest and most advanced addition to the Transformer Pad family. The 64GB model has a RRP of $999, and will be available in August 2012 from authorised ASUS resellers.
Also in the Transformer Pad Family is the Transformer Pad Prime (RRP $799/32GB, $899 64GB), the world's first quad-core tablet and the perfect companion for the mobile techie, and the Transformer Pad 300 (priced from RRP $499), available in a choice of red, blue and white offering value for the tech-savvy and stylish.
