Best Buy Now Listing Asus Transformer Pad Infinity for $600
Though the Transformer Pad Infinity Android tablet by Asus is listed as out of stock, the slate is being listed by U.S. retailer Best Buy for a price tag of $600. The price will give you 64 GB of on-board storage for the WiFi-only version of the slate. Though Asus had promised that variants of the Transformer Pad Infinity with cellular data connectivity will be available, it’s unclear when those models will launch and for how much.
The Transformer Pad Infinity will come with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU and will have a high resolution 1080p display with 1920 X 1200 pixels; the screen will make use of Super IPS+ display technology for better viewing angles both indoors and outdoors under direct sunlight.
It’s reported that the Transformer Pad Infinity will launch in mid-July for $500 for a 32 GB model and $600 for a 64 GB model; the optional laptop dock will retail for an additional $150. Through Best Buy’s website at this time, it shows that the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is listed as out of stock and unavailable online and at local stores to the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Transformer Pad Infinity will also have some optional accessories available for it that will make the slate more usable, including a keyboard dock that will charge the tablet when in use and allow users access to additional ports and memory card slots. The keyboard dock also has a full-sized keyboard as well as a trackpad for navigating the Android OS without the need to touch the screen in laptop-like mode.
It’s been speculated in the past that U.S. carrier AT&T may carry the Transformer Pad Infinity with built-in mobile broadband support. The Transformer Pad Infinity will follow the steps of Asus’ Eee Pad Transformer and Transformer Prime.
