    Asus officially re-announces TF700 & 300

    I looked around and didn't find any posts here on this yet. I snagged this from engadget.com via Pulse. I like the Gorilla glass 2 plus the qualcomm 8960.

    ASUS rebrands its tablets 'Transformer Pads,' announces the high-end Infinity Series with either Tegra 3 or Snapdragon's S4 chip FEBRUARY 27, 2012 BY DANA WOLLMAN : ENGADGET

    Yes, another one. Less than four months

    after announcing the original T201

    Transformer Prime and slightly modified

    TF700T, ASUS is adding uno más to the

    collection. And don't be fooled by the

    name: though the company is rebranding

    its tablet line "Transformer Pads," the

    newly announced Infinity Series looks a

    lot like a product we've already seen.

    Essentially, it's the TF700T with a dual-

    core Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon

    S4 CPU and an optional LTE radio. Now,

    before you gasp that ASUS has ditched

    NVIDIA, hear this: there will still be a

    Tegra 3 option, but that's just the WiFi-

    only version; the 3G / 4G versions will

    pack the S4 chip.

    Additionally, there will be a lower-end

    16GB option (the TF700T was only

    available in 32GB and 64GB flavors).

    Otherwise, the specs are the same,

    including a quad-core Tegra 3 SoC, dual

    8MP / 2MP cameras, 1GB of RAM, HDMI

    and a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200, Super IPS+

    Gorilla Glass display. This time around, it

    has Gorilla Glass 2, but that's a mild spec

    bump indeed.

    Unlike the original Prime, which shipped

    with Honeycomb but updated to Ice

    Cream Sandwich shortly after going on

    sale, the Infinity Pad will run Android 4.0

    out of the box. It also comes with 8GB of

    free lifetime ASUS WebStorage and is

    rated for 10 hours of battery life (16 with

    that signature keyboard dock, sold

    separately). No word yet on pricing or

    availability. In any case, though, we

    wouldn't be surprised if ASUS gave birth

    to another tablet between now and then.

    I read that Gorilla Glass 2 can be 20% thinner than Plain Old Gorilla Glass.

    This sucks. I traded in my laptop for the prime and because the wifi ABSOLUTELY blows I can't use the thing out in the yard. I have actually been thinking about placing an outdoor access point on the other side of the yard, but after a little experimentation it looks like I'd need to set up two of them to get full coverage. As it is I really only have usable wifi about 20' from the current access point which is mounted high on an exterior wall. For the record my Asus laptop got great wifi range. I could use it all over the yard. Oh yeah, also the GPS just plain doesn't work. I would rather have a TF101. If they don't make my Prime right I'm going to make a lot of noise. I'll start a media circus lawsuit.

    Sing in me oh Muse, and through me tell the story of that ingenious hero who traveled far and wide to be with his wife and child after sacking the city of Troy
