We've seen more than a few details emerge in the past few weeks about the Asus Transformer Pad 300, and they've been confirmed today with the company's official launch of the hybrid tablet. The basic specs are the same as what we saw back at MWC, with the Ice Cream Sandwich device featuring a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Asus is also touting a battery life of up to 10 hours for the tablet, which the company says can stretch to 15 when using the all-important mobile dock. The tablet is priced at $379 for the 16GB model and $399 for the 32GB version, with the dock coming in at $149. The tablet comes in three colors, with the blue version available "shortly"; the white and red variants will begin shipping at a later date.
