Asus ships Transformer Pad 300 in US
Tegra 3 ICS tablet for $379
Asus has started shipping the Transformer Pad in the US market with a tempting $379 price tag.
Powered by a Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, the entry level SKU features 1GB of memory and 16GB of storage, which sounds pretty impressive given the price. The stripped down Pad 300 features a 10.1-inch 1280x800 screen, 8-megapixel camera, micro HDMI and micro SD and 4G LTE is also optional and you can get a 32GB version for €399.
However, in order to live up to its transformer moniker, the Pad 300 also needs a keyboard dock and it will set you back $149 and make the whole package quite costly. There is no word on EU pricing just yet, but we reckon it will end up somewhat cheaper than Acer’s Iconia A510, which goes for €399.
