Asus last month revealed that its Transformer Pad Infinity tablet (TF700) would be headed to the United States the week of July 16, costing $499 for the 32 GB version and $599 for the 64 GB version. Now it looks like we're finally getting information on the UK release (which was originally scheduled for some time in April). According to Pocket-Lint, you'll be able to pick one up on Amazon UK come August 31 just as long as you're willing to fork out £599.99 for the 10.1-inch tablet.
Unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in February, Asus claims the TF700 is the world's first Full HD Android tablet, as it sports a Full HD 1920 x 1200 Super IPS+ display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The display offers a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 178-degree viewing angle, and is backed by Nvidia's 1.6 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 T33 4-PLUS-1 SoC which also contains a 12-core GeForce GPU.
The tablet boasts a rear-facing 8MP camera with an F/2.2 aperture, 5-element lens, and back-illuminated CMOS sensor. It also supports touch-to-focus capabilities, shallow depth of field, low light noise reduction, a wide 75-degree angle of view (28-mm equivalent focal length), and Full HD 1080p video recording at 30fps. There's also a 2MP front-facing camera for video calling via Skype or other Android-based clients.
Of course, this wouldn't be a transformer if it didn't also have an optional keyboard dock to offer a notebook-like experience for productivity. When combined with the Mobile Dock, the Transformer Pad Infinity "transforms" into a makeshift ultrabook, extending the battery life up to 14 hours and providing a full-blown QWERTY keyboard with multi-touch touchpad. The tablet comes with either 32 GB or 64 GB of local storage, but there's also a USB port and an SD card slot for expanding the capacity along with 8 GB of free storage on Asus WebStorage for life.
