Asus goes wild at Computex

Written by Peter Scott

New Transformer tablet, FonePad phablet

Asus thinks it has come up with the mother of all Android tablets. The new Transformer Pad Infinity is a dockable 10-incher with a 2560x1600 panel, the same resolution used on the vaunted Nexus 10.

It is powered by Nvidia’s new Tegra 4 SoC clocked at 1.9GHz and it even supports 4K output via HDMI. Connectivity is equally impressive, as it has a USB 3.0 port and Bluetooth 3.0. Like previous high-end Transformers, the beast is packed in a metallic chassis and has a detachable physical keyboard dock.

It ships with 32GB of storage, but it has a memory card slot in the dock and since previous versions also featured a microSD slot in the device itself, it is more than likely that the new one has it as well.

Asus didn’t forget about the low-end, either. It has a new 7-inch MeMo Pad, with a bargain bin price tag. The MeMo Pad HD 7 boasts a 1280x800 display like the Nexus 7, along with a quad-core A7 processor and it costs $129, which is very cheap indeed.

The company has also given in to the phablet craze, with the FonePad Note, a huge 6-inch phone with a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and a dual-core Atom Z2560 processor.

Asus is already a big name in Android tablets and the new line-up indicates that it’s not going anywhere - we must say we're impressed and the $129 MeMo Pad looks like the best cheap Android tab out there.
