Asus outs 1920 x 1280 Android ICS tablet
iPad 3 challenger
Asus has joined Huawei to become a second announcer of a 10in tablet with a 1920 x 1280 display - the one it was teasing us about last week.
Enter the Transformer Pad Infinity - say farewell to the Eee Pad brand, folks - a 586g tablet based on a 1.6GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU and packing 16-64GB of Flash storage.
That's the Wi-Fi version - the Infinity that also packs 4G connectivity will be based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 chip running at 1.5GHz.
Both versions run Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich. The screen is covered in Corning's second-gen Gorilla Glass. There's an 8Mp camera on the back, and micro HDMI and Micro SD portage on the side.
Like other Transformers, this one will have a keyboard dock accessory that, thanks to its own built in battery, ups the overall power capacity available to the tablet from 25Whr to 47Whr.
There's no official word yet on pricing and availability, but the word is it'll be out in April. ®
Specs don't mean good customer experience. That's a nerdy consensus that high numbers of everything means that it'll magically give you the experience you want. Unfotunately not. It's the simple concepts of the iOS package that keeps knocking down mouth-for-mouth recommendations for the iPad device like dominoes.
No other manufacturer has established a reputation in the tablet arena until they start pushing Google to make Android a much cleaner experience. Also, marketing for these new tabs is lacking to the point of not bothering releasing the product.
Don't forget that releasing a new version of tab every few months just equates to sticking your finger up at your customers. Lack of forward planning, lack of innovation and lack of care. Harsh but true.
HDMI on tablets
I use the HDMI connection on my first generation Transformer at about half the hotels I stay in, to watch recorded programmes. I would do it at all hotels, but not all of them have TVs with HDMI inputs, sadly.

Or knee jerk trolls eh Barry?
Truth hurts - especially if you are as blinkered as BSP.
I'll wait for the Transformer Pad Beyond
Re: Can you actually read anything on it?
Android has proper support for DPI scaling. Text will be the same size as always, it will just look better.
