ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Series Launch Gets Closer

In February, ASUS announced two new Transformer Pad tablets. The Transformer Pad 300 which launched last month and the Transformer Pad Infinity which has yet to launch in the U.S. However, it now looks like the Transformer Pad Infinity has finally moved closer to release as the device has passed through the FCC with flying colors.

The filing was first spotted by Engadget and it reveals that the Wi-Fi version of the Transformer Pad Infinity has passed through the federal government’s grasp, approval which means that a release date has only gotten closer.

Asus’ 4G LTE version of the device has not yet been spotted at the FCC which means that a release could be further down the road.We’re assuming that Asus will likely want to release these in close proximity to each other so we could possibly see the 4G LTE version pass through the FCC soon.

The Transformer Pad Infinity Series offers some specifications that are sure to delight those who have fallen in love with Asus’ Android tablet offerings. They might just lure in some new consumers as well.

It’s going to feature a Full HD Super IPS+ display which means it’s going to rock 1920 x 1200 resolution. The display also employs Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 to help protect the fantastic display from damage. You can see in action in the video below:

It’ll also have a slim 8.5mm design, a 2MP front camera for video chat, and an 8MP rear camera with a large F2.2 aperture, 5-element lens and LED flash.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be the operating system on board and it will be powered by NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor. That processor is only going to be found in the Wi-Fi model though.

The 4G LTE version of the Transformer Pad Infinity Series is going to come equipped with a Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5Ghz processor.

NVIDIA has said that 4G LTE devices with Tegra 3 won’t arrive until 2013.

In any event, it should only be a matter of time before we see a retailer or two confirm the release date for the Transformer Pad Infinity series. We’ll definitely be on the look out for a date.

    To heck with all this – bring on the Asus Transformer Win8 – we know it has to be out there – Asus will have the hands down winner in the early battle of Windows 8 tablets with that design. Transformer goodness with Office 15 – we’d be all over it.

      The problem with Win8 and tablet is that Microsoft has waited so long to get into the game. Just like they did with the phone market. If they would have been as aggressive with it like they were with the XBox 360…they’d be a major player in the field instead of a role player on the end of the bench. Microsoft has lacked real vision as it relates to the consumer market.
