    It's been a little while since we have seen any news come out regarding Asus' next flagship tablet, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. We thought we would share a refresher as well as a new rumored launch timeframe. According to the latest intel we have been hearing, the tablet will likely arrive sometime in July/August, although no specifics have been given. The device is probably ready for release, but Asus is waiting for a good market timing. Here's a refresh on specs of this awesome looking beast:
    • 1,920x1,200-pixel-resolution, 10.1-inch screen Super IPS+
    • TF700 can be mated with an optional keyboard dock
    • The front camera 2-megapixel and will allow for HD video chat conferencing
    • The 8-megapixel rear camera gets an aperture upgrade from F/2.4 to F/2.2 on the TF700. (This will allow for more detail in video and still shots.)
    • Improved back-panel design. (plastic instead of aluminum)
    • As thin as the Prime
    • Android 4.0
    • Nvidia Tegra 3 running at 1.6GHz
    • 1GB of RAM
    • Corning Gorilla Glass 2
    • Micro HDMI, and Micro SD
    • Optional keyboard dock available as an extra; priced about $150
    Prices will likely start at $600 for 32GB and $700 for 64GB.

    We have another discussion thread for specs going on here: Infinity 700 series, Pad 300 series specs

    I know I am laaaaate to the party as I've never had a tablet and have had my eye on this since I first heard about it.
    My question is this: should I wait and pay a bundle for this or go for a tablet that has been around the block a few times for considerably less?
    Oh and No ipads. I like Android, tinkering, and customizing.

    Well it depends... I like this tab, but the tf300 looks to be a great tab too. It depends on what you want really :)

    Too much. Maybe for $500 but I can't justify that much for a tablet.

    Thanks. Was gonna try to save up for the Infinity but I guess the prime will be what I get till the Infinity price drops to. Reasonable level.
    Do you guys think the Infinity will surpass the Ipad? A friend keeps telling me how great the Ipad2 is and I should get that. I am not an Apple fan like my friend is.

    Well the prime and the tf300 are different pads. Ive got quite a bit of experience with the NEW ipad 3 lol.. And the tf300 they both are great tabs but the ipad cost way way too much when u can get the asus at half the cost and performs just as good if not better it should be a easy decision if ur a android fan.

    This looks nice, but I just can't see a reason to buy a tablet. That's what large smartphones are for :D

    Like the Note? That's just too big for me to be a practical phone. I would rather have a tablet and a phone :p

    Best Buy has the Infinity wi-fi 64 gb model listed at $599.99.
    It is listed as "sold out online." They're probably just getting the listing ready for when it releases.
    The color listed was champagne.
