Review Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T Tablet/MID
19 July 2012
Summary: King of the hill. It seems that the top-notch Transformer Pad Prime TF201 was not satisfactory for Asus. The manufacturer has taken the next step with the Full-HD Infinity TF700T, which is primed to take the throne.
Pros: Bright display with stable viewing angles, Very high performance, Great workmanship, Fluid interface, Long battery life, Useful docking keyboard, The list is too long, so let us mention the most important features: the Super IPS panel is a delight, high performance ensures long use of the tablet, great workmanship leaves no reason for complaint.
Cons: Modest camera quality, Average speakers, No 3G module available, Power adapter can get quite hot at load, Better cameras, which are not so important for tablets. A 3G or LTE module should be on-board or at least be optional.
Excerpt: Tablets are great, but they’re not good for everything. Ever since I got ahold of the first Android and iPad tablets, it sometimes feels like work to lug out the big laptop for something I could simply do with a handheld touchscreen. After two years of using touchscreens though, I can firmly say that while keyboards are disappearing from phones, there is definitely still a place left for good keyboards in the tablet market. Is the Asus Transformer Infinity one of them?
Pros: Keyboard dock, 13-hour battery life (with dock), Full HD screen, Top-notch hardware specs, Hardware feels premium, Polaris Office works great for docs, Full-size USB and SD slots
Cons: Android 4.0 lacks good tablet apps, Web browsing is slow, limited, Keyboard doesn't want to dock, Want to tip forward when keyboard is attached, Touchpad is hypersensitive, Expensive, starting at $650
Summary: Those looking for the best and brightest display in an Android tablet need look no further than the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. Its gorgeous 10-inch 1920 x 1200 Super IPS screen literally outshines the competition, and its new Tegra 3 processor packs a serious punch. These two features alone make the $499 starting price -- $100 more than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10 -- more than worth it.
Conclusion: The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is the best large-screen Android tablet money can buy, with an incredibly bright and sharp high-resolution display and blazing fast quad-core processor, but there just aren't enough apps.
Pros: Incredibly bright and sharp screen. Thin and light aluminum body. Blazing fast quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
Cons: Dearth of apps that take advantage of the screen.
The Transformer Pad Infinity gets lots of things right, but is it worth $999?

Summary: An excellent, high resolution screen, a stylish design that's well constructed and great battery life make the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity one of the best Android tablets on the market. However, the lack of 3G or 4G connectivity is a downside and there are some annoying software issues that we can only hope will be ironed out.
Pros: Excellent, high res display, Good build quality and finish, Battery life
Cons: Expensive, No 3G or 4G model, Some annoying software issues
Excerpt: Following the success of Apple's iPad, every manufacturer released an imitation tablet except for Asus. They saw room for improvement—innovation even—by introducing a tablet that can be mounted into a functional keyboard. For them, the tablet could play a pivotal role in content creation, and so began generations of Transformer devices. The company's latest transformer is the Transformer Pad .
Pros: Hugely Powerful; Keyboard is a worthwhile addition; One of the best screens we've seen on a tablet; Excellent battery life;
Conclusion: Price aside, we love the Infinity. The screen is glorious, it feels like a sturdy tablet and it looks superb. The keyboard is good, but won't compete with a laptop; the trackpad we don't have a lot of time for. It's really too small, although it does do the job. The media keys work well, and it's great to use a tablet, with a different approach to that of laptops. Function keys are dead, so having controls on these buttons makes a lot more sense.
Pros: Stunning display, keyboard makes this more useful than other tablets, sleek design, fast, decent battery life
Cons: Trackpad is less than ideal, keyboard layout will challenge those trying to replace a laptop, expensive, no 3G option in the UK as yet
