The ASUS Transformer series of tablets are actually among the best on the market in my view. I’ve owned one of them each year since they came out and have found them to be wonderfully responsive, well designed and feature-rich. It makes a change from strangely laid out systems that require hard hats, camels and food supplies to figure them out. Now ASUS has announced the arrival of the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T which has some great features and lots of speed.
This is a big Android tablet with 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi and a keyboard. The screen is 10.1 inches of IPS backlit beauty and has a fantastic resolution of 2500×1600 pixels. This means you get to enjoy all sorts of HD entertainment, including the 5MP of rear camera HD video shooting fun. Yes, you can shoot in high def with good sound quality with both the front and rear (1.2MP) cameras and you can show them off on your new tablet.
This ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T also has power given unto it by the lovely Tegra 4 chip with 1.9GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex A15 processor fun and 2GB of RAM. It’s fast! You can watch movies, handle hefty documents, slip between apps and all without horrible juddering, shaking and painstaking waiting. Which I like. I am not a patient technology user by any means.
You will find the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean operating system resting casually within the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T and you get instant access to the Play Store, lots of great functionality and the extras that always go with Google’s champion OS. Take a look here for a comprehensive list of all the features you can find in Android 4.2.
Of course, no modern ASUS device would be complete without their SonicMaster audio technology and the premium speakers to go with it. This makes such a nice change from the tinny, vile audio that accompanies so many devices…
Other features worthy of mention are the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, Micro SD/SDXC/SDHC card slots, Miracast, 5GB of ASUS cloud storage, HDMI connectivity, a GeForce GPU and an additional battery on the keyboard dock. It’s a good one and it is just in time for Christmas.
