Tab OR Notebook? Asus “Transformer” Hits $499

X

Its the tab that is a notebook.
Meet Asus Transformer Pad TF300T – the colourful and much hyped Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet hitting Oz this week.

The 10.1″ (1280 X 800) Asus is ultra mobile at 9.9mm slim and 635g light, and when docked up to ASUS Mobile Dock, literally transforms into a workstation.

The dock boasts a Qwerty keyboard and multi-touch touchpad for a notebook experience, and comes with USB port and SD card slot for extra storage. 

When docked, total battery life is 15 hours, while the tab on its own goes for “up to” 10 hrs, Asus claim. 
The Transformer Pad is powered by a powerful NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor (with integrated 12-core GeForce GPU), for “superior performance, multi-tasking” say its makers.

ASUS SonicMaster technology gives it good sound and an 1.2MP front camera, and 8MP auto-focus camera (rear) takes Full HD 1080p video playback.

It also has 32GB of internal memory, a microSD slot and 8GB of free storage on ASUS WebStorage for life.

The Transformer Pad’s Android 4.0 OS is upgradable and features “exclusive” software says Asus.

Software onboard include preinstalled SuperNote application to take notes and Polaris Office, which gives users the ability to read or create Word, Excel and PowerPoint (MS Office 97-07 version compatible) files.

The Transformer will set you back $499 for the basic model while the docking station will cost you another $100.

Looks wise, the 10″ tab/notebook wears a concentric patterned finish similar to Transformer Pad Prime, and comes in three colours, Royal Blue, Iceberg White and Torch Red.

 

Additional accessories (optional) include TranSleeve Dual, a multi-view angle sleeve that supports handheld video watching and ergonomic typing.

Also available are micro HDMI to VGA or HDMI cables, an external SD Card reader, external USB Port adapter and a USB to Ethernet adapter, all designed to complement your ASUS Transformer Pad.
