New Asus Transformer Pad TF701T comes with Tegra 4 and ultra high-res display
Asus just made its New Asus Transformer Pad TF701T official, the first slate announced with a 1.9 GHz Tegra 4 processor. It is touted it as the world's fastest quad-core Cortex-A15 processor with 72-core GPU. In addition, you get 2 GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB onboard storage with microSDXC (tablet) & SDXC (dock) slots.

A 10.1" 2560x1600 pixels WQXGA IGZO IPS-LCD display is what you'll find on the tablet, like on the Google Nexus 10, making it only the second tablet panel with this incredibly high resolution. A 5 MP camera on the back of the metallic finish display part rounds up the great offering with 263 x 180.8 x 8.9mm dimensions and just 585g of weight, despite the metallic chassis.

There's the obligatory keyboard dock we are used to associate with the Transformer series of Asus, with a fast USB 3.0 port this time, and the powerful processor allows for a cool 4K video output via the HDMI port. An Asus rep has spilled the beans on pricing, saying that the tablet will cost around $399 on itself, while the docked combo will run you $499, which we have to see to believe when the new Transformer Pad TF701T launches in Q3.

I've always liked the Transformer Pad concept, but they seem to always screw up the implementation. Only time will tell how this one turns out...

This is what I love about Asus. Top of the line specs with very affordable prices. The only downside is when they cut corners, like what they did with the previous TF700. Great all-around specs at the time hampered by slow nand, making the tablet's performance frustrating at times.

I'm confused, didn't ASUS already announce a Tegra 4 Transformer Pad Infinity back in June?

$399 is a pretty good price considering that the Nexus 10 16gig is the same price.

This is the first tablet I've heard of that uses IGZO display tech, never heard of the N10 doing that.
