    ASUS Changes Up their Branding to 'Transformer Pad' Series & Adds New Infinity Series


    Asus is had some fun coming up with a new naming convention for their Transformer series. Any new Transformer products will be called Transformer Pads. This is likely a move to avoid anymore lawsuits regarding the robots that are "more than meets the eye." Regardless, they are also adding a new Infinity series lineup to their lineup.

    The TF700T that was exposed at CES earlier in the year will be part of the Infinity series. As reported previously, it has a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, but something new has been revealed at MWC this year. This particular tablet will not come with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core, because that processor doesn't play well with LTE. This new tablet will come with a new Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 CPU instead. The WiFi versions will still come with the Tegra 3. Here's a press release with more details,

    ASUS PadFone and upcoming Transformer Pad Lineup unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2012
    ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih introduces the latest ASUS mobile devices and discusses his vision of ubiquitous cloud computing

    Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain (27 February, 2012) – At today’s “Incredibly Mobile Endless Possibilities” ASUS press event, Chairman Jonney Shih unveiled the revolutionary PadFone and upcoming Transformer Pad lineup. “The time has finally arrived when every screen in your lives could transcend into a portal with real time access into your digital world,” said Mr. Shih as he introduced the ASUS PadFone which transforms into a three-in-one combination of a smartphone, a tablet and a notebook when accessorized with the PadFone Station and PadFone Station Dock.

    The ASUS PadFone is an incredible 4.3″ smartphone featuring a Super AMOLEDqHD display, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor and an ultra-sharp 8-megapixel digital camera with Fuji image processor all wrapped in an exquisite design that is optimized for Google’s Android 4.0 operating system. When placed inside the optional PadFone Station, it transforms into a 10.1″ tablet with 5 times the battery capacity. The PadFone offers unmatched versatility via ASUS’ proprietary Dynamic Display technology which allows seamless transition between the PadFone and PadFone Station display screens. In addition, the PadFone Station offers an optional keyboard dock that essentially turns the PadFone into an ultraportable computing device. The PadFone also comes with the option of a PadFone Stylus Headset which is a Bluetooth stylus pen that transforms into a headset for picking up calls easily.

    ASUS is redefining the future of mobile computing devices and is excited to announce the new and innovative ASUS Transformer Pad lineup. Offering three distinct models to fit the unique needs of mobile media consumers, ASUS believes in providing consumers with choices. The ASUS Transformer Pad lineup includes the ASUS Transformer Pad Prime and upcoming ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity series and ASUS Transformer Pad 300 series.

    The Transformer Pad Infinity Series is poised to be the go-to tablet for HD mobile entertainment as it features an impressive 1920×1200 Full HD Super IPS+ display and ASUS SonicMaster technology. The 4G LTE* model comes armed with the powerful Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 Krait Dual-core 1.5Gh processor and is capable of download and upload speeds of up to 100Mbps and 50Mbps respectively. The WiFi model features the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor for incredible application and gaming performance. The Transformer Pad Infinity has a 2MP front camera for HD video conferencing along with an 8MP rear camera with a large F2.2 aperture, 5-element lens and LED flash for stunning high quality images or HD video capture.

    The Transformer Pad 300 Series makes for an ideal mobile web surfing and gaming platform with its NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and high quality 10.1″ 1280×800 IPS display with either 4G LTE* or WiFi options. It features a 1.2MP front camera for video conferencing and an 8MP rear camera with a large F2.2 aperture, 5-element lens allows for high quality images along with HD video recording. The Transformer Pad 300 Series has battery life of up to 10 hours*, and that is extended up to 15 hours* with the optional keyboard dock.

    Transformer "Pad"...??? Really???!!! I thought that was the stupidest thing Apple did when they named the iPad (pad and tampon jokes abounded) and Asus is going to copy it? Not smart. The person who thought that up should be fired.

    Okay, so now that I've calmed down about the "Pad" thing. Are they going to release the tablet with 802.11ac? The S4 chip can support it...

    Guess you never noticed the current name of the Transformer is really the eeePad Transformer. Check your screen next time you boot.

    The Padfone looks cool. The only issue is the Tablet is useless without the phone. It won't work unless the phone is docked

    Yup, knew that but like you wrote, you had to say "the name is really the..." it was hidden, sort of. Now it's set apart and is much more apparent. Like I said, I'm over it. I just couldn't believe Asus would throw something out there that looked so much like a competitor (especially one I despise).

    I wonder why Asus have released so many products in this year? The Infinity Pad could be better if they release next year, with better specs.
