ASUS' latest tablet/laptop hybrid powerhouse has had quite a long history, encompassing two versions. That journey is, hopefully, now over and interested buyers will be able to get their hands on the Transformer Pad T701T Monday next week.
The Nexus 7 from Google and Asus is easily one of the best Android tablets available, with many considering it the true benchmark device for the platform. Aside from the Chromebook, the Nexus 7 sees the most TV advertising of all Google devices.
There is always room for affordable mid-range Android tablets and no other major manufacturer probably has that category pinned down than ASUS. Now the company is making its two latest tablets, the MeMO Pad 8 and the MeMO Pad 10, available in its home court of Taiwan.
If current rumors are accurate, Asus may not be making your 2014 Nexus 7. According to a report by Digitimes, Asus is currently looking for new ways to fill the gap they may have, should they officially lose their ties with Google next year.
After just having announced the revamped PadFone Infinity earlier this week, ASUS is already making waves about what it has in store. Soon to be added to its growing line of Android devices are the MeMOFone HD 5 and a smaller sibling of the smartphone/tablet hybrid, the PadFone mini.
With the 2013 Nexus 7 announced in July and the rumor mill surrounding the Nexus 5 smartphone kicking into full gear, it was only a matter of time before we get word of a refreshed Nexus 10 tablet as well. And looks like the device will again be coming from ASUS who already had the privilege of manufacturing the new Nexus 7.
The day has finally come and ASUS has announced its refresh of the PadFone Infinity which, probably to no one's surprise, does indeed run on an upgraded processor. But ASUS has also thrown in a few additional features that would probably be of interest to those looking to nab of these smartphone/tablet hybrids.
The new, and hopefully real, PadFone Infinity is the future, and it is ready to launch. At least, that's according to the teaser page that ASUS has set up in preparation for the device's unveiling on Tuesday next week.
The Intel Developers Forum was filled not just with revelations of the manufacturer's upcoming chips but also with announcements of new devices, including a series of notebooks and a PC box running Google's Chrome OS and powered by Intel's latest fourth generation "Haswell" Core processors. This time, ASUS and Toshiba are joining the fray of companies touting Chrome OS devices which now totals six manufacturers.
The IFA trade show may be over, but that's not stopping ASUS from announcing its refreshed PadFone Infinity, which it has apparently scheduled to happen next week in Taiwan. It seems like we will finally get to see if this new PadFone Infinity will have other surprises in store for us.
