Asus has introduced the new TF700T Android tablet, a new variant of its Eee Pad Transformer Prime, whose major upgrade is a move to a 1920 x 1200 screen resolution.
That makes two Android tablets moving to a 1080p res, following Acer’s Iconia Tab A700. Another significant upgrade is in the tablet’s rear cover design, which has been altered to allow for better GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth performance. The front-facing camera has been upgraded from 1.2 to 2 megapixels.
Transformer Prime TF700T will be shipped with Android 4.01, including the 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 system-on-chip. The 10.1 inch display is still made of the SuperIPS+ stuff, which is considered even better with the upgrade to full HD resolution.
Onboard storage on the new Prime will be either 32GB or 64GB, depending on buyer’s preference. It will also be compatible with the previous Transformer Prime’s keyboard dock.
The price of TF700T should cost between $599 and $699 when it hits the market’s shelves in the second quarter of 2012. We really hope the upgrade of ice cream sandwich has optimized for that new beautiful display, and of course we need more apps to match the 1920 x 1200 resolution.
