ASUS hints to a tablet with "twice the detail, twice the fun" for its MWC event
In the very brief video below from Asus (and by brief, we mean 17 seconds), we’re teased by some kind of tablet that has “twice the detail, twice the fun.” At this point, it’s hard to say with certainty if it’s referring to an existing model we know about, or something totally new. Considering that Asus has tablets ranging from every size and price point, it’s extremely difficult to say where this one might land at – though, we sure that’ll garner some attraction with its fabulous detail.
Some believe it to be the Transformer 2 that has been making the rounds of late, which is surprisingly alleged to offer the same specs as the existing Transformer Prime, but it would be produced at a lower cost due to its less than premium construction and design. In any event, February 27th will be here soon enough for us all to find out exactly what they have in store. With the next-generation iPad rumored to pack a pixel crunching resolution, we’re wondering if Asus will come out of the gate with something heavy to make us forget about it.

It'd be just wonderful if someone took the rug out from under apple and released a tablet with a pixel-rich display before the next ipad were released

it already looks like that is a definite possibility.

And why do we have to bring Apple into this discussion? Here we could be yappin away about the Transformer 2 and all you want to talk about is Apple. This is why Phonearena always posts stuff about Apple because it seems to be the only thing on the minds of iFans and Fandroids alike lol!

It is probably the number of pixels on the screen.
The actual resolution is 800X1280.
And HD 1080 = 1080X1920 = 2 X actual resolution.

they should make it 1920*1120 because of the stupid android bar at the bottom.
this will make it close to full 1080p on the space.!

Can't wait to check this out. I was looking at the Transformer Prime but now I will have to wait to see what Asus has in-store for us.

I'm very excited for when Asus makes Windows 8 slates because they've definitely proven that they can make tablets!

Thats a good point. When i get my windows 8 tablet, it may not be a samsung. I may be an asus.
