ASUS introduced the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity at Computex yesterday. It’s a new tablet with an old name, but this time ASUS has added a few bells and whistles to the 10.1 inch tablet. The new version has the Nvidia Tegra 4 platform in combination with a very high resolution display.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity with WQXGA-Display & Tegra 4 – Hands-on-Video

The new Transformer Pad Infinity looks at first glance just like the old one, but once you take a closer look, you see something very different. The resolution is the the extreme limit with its 2560×1600 pixels in a 10 inch screen. It has an IPS display and good viewing angles. ASUS built the new Transformer Pad with a 1.9 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor, namely, the Nvidia Tegra 4 with 4 cores and a 72 core GeForce-GPU. It also has 2 GB memory and a 32 GB internal flash memory.

There’s a 5-Megapixel-Camera on the back with f/2.4 and a 1.2-Megapixel-Cam on the front. It has N-WLAN Bluetooth 3.0 with EDR and SD card slot. In the tablet ASUS stuck a 8180mAh battery and the whole device is only 9.5 mm thin, weighing in at 600 grams. Since the screen has such an incredible resolution, the larger battery and strong NVIDIA Tegra 4 make perfect sense.

In tests, the battery lasts 8 hours, but the goal is obviously 10 hours run time, according to an ASUS marketing rep. The keyboard dock has a 19Wh integrated battery that should last 12 hours. The price is somewhat interesting: $399 and $100 for the keyboard dock, a total of $499.
