There is something particularly intriguing about a tablet that, even with a Full HD resolution display and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 on top of it, still manages a price of £600.
That would mean $930 / 770 Euro if exchange rates had anything to say about it, but we are glad to say they don't, in this case.
The price in the US if $499 for the 32GB model and $599 for the 64GB version, while European countries should have just as many Euro slapped on them, or close enough.
The £600 is just a usual case of everything costing more in the UK than in most other parts of the world.
Anyway, according to the newest press release from ASUS
, the Transformer Pad
Infinity tablet, TF700, will begin shipping there on August 31.
The Super IPS+ display will be driven by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, whose 4-PLUS-1 architecture will maximize both performance and power efficiency.
When high-quality video or anything mildly straining is run, the four ARM cores and integrated graphics handle it. When the tablet is idle, however, or when nothing too stressful is run, the low-power fifth core takes over and powers the others down.
Those 600 pounds will also net customers 64 GB of NAND Flash storage and a keyboard dock (QWERTY).
The rest of the specs are pretty common otherwise: micro-HDMI, LAN, audio, USB 2.0, a memory card slot (SD) and two cameras (8 MP at the back, 2 MP at the front).
Finally, the hardware runs the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system for up to 9.5 hours on a single battery charge (14 hours if the keyboard dock comes into play).
