Asus Transformer Pad
The Transformer Pad series from Asus, which includes the Transformer Pad 300 and Transformer Pad Infinity, are worth taking a look at by those who aren't impressed with the Nexus devices but still want swift updates and powerful hardware.
Asus is top notch when it comes to major Android updates. In fact, the Transformer Pad 300 beat a Nexus device to a major Android update in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That kind of customer service is not offered with many tablets.
It also helps that both have good hardware including speedy processors, solid cameras, and optional keyboard docks. (Thus the name, Transformer.) The Transformer Pad 300 is an extremely solid buy with its sub-$400 price tag while the Transformer Pad Infinity and its quad-core processor and high-res display undercut the new iPad by around $50.
