ASUS South Africa has confirmed its flagship Android tablet for 2012, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, will launch in South Africa at the end of July. The tablet will come bundled with a keyboard dock and will retail for R7,799.99 Incl VAT.
The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is a follow-up to the company’s Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet, which was released in South Africa earlier this year. The Infinity is a similar tablet to its predecessor but boasts an improved screen and a higher resolution front camera.
The key feature of the Transformer Pad Infinity appears to be a 10.1″ super IPS+ screen with an impressive 1920×1200 resolution. In comparison, almost all current 10″ Android tablets use a 1280×800 resolution display panel.
ASUS will sell the Transformer Pad Infinity’s keyboard dock as an optional accessory in other markets, but the company will bundle this with all South African models of the device. The keyboard dock adds an extra six hours of battery life to the Infinity’s stand-alone 10 hour battery life when connected, therefore producing a total battery life of up to 16 hours.
An ASUS South Africa Representative confirmed that the company will sell the 64GB Wi-Fi-only version of the Transformer Pad Infinity in South Africa from “early August”. There was no news at time of writing this article of whether the 32GB will be available in South Africa at a later stage.
ASUS also confirmed it will not launch a 3G model of the Transformer Pad Infinity in South Africa, saying there are “no plans” for the 3G version “at this stage.”
The South African model of the 64GB Wi-Fi-only ASUS Transformer Infinity TF700T will be available in the “amethyst grey” colour and is currently available to order from WebAntics Online (http://www.webantics.co.za/).
