I think we are on the verge of a new era of partnership with government - Steve 'Understatement' Ballmer
TAIWANESE COMPUTER MAKER Asus has revealed that it will launch its Transformer Pad 300 tablet in the UK in May.
Announced at Mobile World Congress in February, the Asus Transformer Pad 300, which now comes without the "Eee" branding, is the company's latest tablet and notebook hybrid. On the specifications front the device comes with Nvidia's Tegra 3 "4-plus-1" quad-core chip along with a 10in screen, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), dual cameras and Asus Sonicmaster technology, which promises to deliver "impressive" sound.
"The Asus Transformer Pad is a value packed tablet that combines quad-core CPU power with multi-color style, and productivity with expandability when connected to the mobile dock," Asus boasts in a press release.
"With a 1.2MP front and 8MP rear auto-focus camera with large F/2.2 aperture and exclusive office software, staying connected and productive has never been easier."
Asus today announced that the tablet will be available to order from Currys and PC World at the beginning of May, priced at £399 including the optional keyboard dock. However, customers will only be able to get their hands on the royal blue model, with the white model launching in June and the torch red model not coming until July. µ
