Instead of having higher specs, the Asus Transformer TF300T matches the Asus Transformer Prime with a 10.1 inch display, and with the quad-core 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor under the hood. Other matched specs include the rear and front-facing cameras weighing in at 8MP and 1.2MP respectively, the 1GB of RAM aboard and of course, with Android 4.0 installed (which the Asus Transformer Prime received via an update).
heavier and thicker than the older tablet, coming in at 640 grams and 9.9mm vs 586 grams and 8.3mm respectively.
Why Asus would offer a new model with basically the same specs as its current flagship tablet would make sense only if the new model offered the manufacturer higher margins due to some changes in production materials. At any rate, we should learn more about the Asus Transformer TF300T at MWC 2012 in Barcelona which starts on February 27th. Speaking of Barcelona, we will be there to provide you with the most complete and up to date coverage of MWC 2012.
