Today, Asus dropped the Eee from it's Android tablet lineup, renaming it Transformer Pad. The new name comes with two new tablets to do along with it: the Infinity Series and the 300 Series. The headliner is the Transformer Pad Infinity Series, which takes the tried-and-true tablet + notebook setup and updates the specs for 2012: 1920 x 1200 Super IPS screen, 8-megapixel rear camera with a 2-megapixel cam on the front, 1GB of RAM and either 16, 32, or 64GB of storage, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0. It essentially looks and feels like a refined version of the Transformer Prime, with a brushed metal back that comes in either gray or gold.
It comes in two further versions: Wi-Fi only or LTE. The Wi-Fi version utilizes the quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, and if you've been following our MWC coverage at all you'll not be surprised to hear that the LTE version doesn't use the Nvidia chip, but instead opts for the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core clocked at 1.5GHz. It should last around 10 hours as a tablet and the laptop dock adds an extra six to that.
The second tablet Asus brought out today was the Transfomer Pad 300 series. It looks virtually identical to the Infinity, differing only in the finish on the back — the finish is less brushed metal with a ribbed circular pattern. The 300 has the lower specs of the two with a 1280 x 800 screen, but it still gets the Tegra 3 processor, RAM, cameras from the Infinity, though it steps the Bluetoodth down to 3.0 and only comes with a 16GB option for storage. It also should be good for around 10 hours on its own, with another five on top with the laptop dock. It comes in blue, white, or red.
