ASUS Transformer Pad Overview
The ASUS Transformer Pad is the high end upgrade to ASUS' spectacular and award winning Transformer range of Android tablets. Think of the Transformer series as an alternative to a conventional laptop, but running Android OS, with a screen that can be detached from the keyboard.
Everything you would expect from a top quality Android tablet is included in the Transformer Pad with a sleek and perfectly engineered mobile dock with keyboard and built in battery to boost performance and productivity.
Although bundled together, the tablet half of the Transformer Pad can be used entirely by itself and contains all the processing power as well as the micro HDMI port, dual-use headphone/microphone 3.5mm headphone jack, micro SD card slot and cameras. The mobile dock is used to enhance typing with the Transformer Pad so getting down to some real work or typing lengthy emails is made all the easier. The mobile dock also adds a full USB 3.0 connection, full size SD card reader and ups the battery life of the tablet from around 13 hours to up to 17 hours.
As a top end device, the Transformer Pad utilises the power of a 1.9 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor to run at lightning fast speeds, whether browsing the web, streaming 1080p video or playing the most demanding mobile games available. Everything is brought to life with the stunning Full HD 2560 x 1600 resolution IPS display.
Asus has included a rear facing 5 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording.A 1.2MP front facing camera has been introduced for video calling. This can record video at 720p HD.
Available with 32 or 64GB of internal storage, the Transformer has plenty of memory out of the box, but the provision of 2 memory card slots; 1 on the tablet and 1 on the dock allow further expansion. The microSD card slot supports up to 128GB memory cards!
For the busy professional, or for those looking for a powerful tablet and keyboard combo the Transformer Pad has all that you require.
Finished with a sleek and modern brushed spun metallic exterior, the Transformer Pad is sure to turn heads wherever you take it.
