Asus Transformer Pad TF103C Specs Revealed

Last month it was revealed that Asus was preparing a two-in-one tablet that would be joining the other models in the company’s Transformer Pad line. Details of the device were still few back then with the only sure information is that the device can be used as a tablet or as a notebook when the keyboard dock is attached.

Asus Transformer Pad TF103C

Just recently the detailed specifications of the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C have been revealed by European retail site Digitec. One interesting thing about this device is that it will be using Intel’s latest Bay Trail processor.

Technical Specifications

  • Display: 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display
  • Processor: Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core, 64-bit, x86 processor
  • Operating System: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Internal storage: 16GB storage
  • Cloud storage: 16GB of Asus WebStorage
  • Expandable storage: microSDHC card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Port: 1 USB 2.0
  • Battery: 5070mAh

Based on its specifications the device can be classified as a mid-range device rather than a high-end one. The processor used is Intel’s latest product specifically designed to be used on tablets. Details of the Intel Atom Z3745 reveal that it has a clock speed of 1.3 GHz, has four cores, and uses a 64-bit architecture. We still don’t have information on how well this processor stands out against its ARM counterparts. The good thing about this though is that it is a 64-bit processor which means that it will be able to support a 64-bit Android operating system when it comes out.

The Asus Transformer Pad TF103C basically targets customers who are looking for a device that has the portability of a tablet yet has the productivity features of a notebook. The device can wither be used as a tablet or as a notebook with the keyboard attached.

In tablet mode a person can use the touch screen to operate the device. This is best suited for viewing multimedia content. The notebook mode is best for working on documents where a person needs a keyboard to type efficiently.

As far as the pricing and the release date of the device is concerned there is still no information available. Asus has not even officially announced the device yet however when the company does we will keep you guys updated.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF303 and TF103 tipped to be in the works

After a few new iterations of its PadFone line, it seems that ASUS is casting a glance on its Transformer Pad devices again. Rumored to be coming soon is a Transformer Pad TF303 and another with a model number TF103.

Judging by the names, we can presume that these will be upgrades of previous existing devices, the TF300 and TF101, respectively. There isn’t much known about the TF103 but it is expected to be the cheaper tablet of the two. Since it’s from the Transformer Pad line, it will be powered by Android, in contrast to the Windows-toting Transformer Book series.

There seems to be more information, or speculation, on the TF303. This tablet/laptop hybrid will, of course, be running Android, the latest Android 4.4 to be exact. But this time, the device will be powered by an Intel Bay Trail processor. Though this is rather new for the Android Transformers, ASUS has actually announced other Intel-powered devices quite recently, particularly a variant of the PadFone mini as well as the ZenFone family of smartphones.

asus-transformer-pad-tf303-tf101-2

Other than that, both are expected to be 10-inch slabs, with the TF303 believed to be sporting Full HD resolution. ASUS seems to have adopted dual front-facing speakers, observable from a leaked photo of what is supposed to be the either of the two rumored tablets. The keyboard dock seems to have also been revamped a bit, though whether it will be more comfortable to use will require some hands-on testing.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T can run multiple ROMs simultaneously

If you’re one of those who have ASUS‘ earliest Transformer Pad sitting in a corner somewhere, now might be a good time to dust it off. Coming from XDA is an unofficial port of MultiROM for the hybrid device that could give it not just a new chance at life but even multiple lives.

The ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T is practically two years old by now. It can be considered as the granddaddy of today’s breed of tablets that double as notebooks via a keyboard dock. The device is definitely showing its age and ASUS has brought out newer iterations of the line. Those who have a certain fondness for the tablet/notebook hybrid can now use it for newer purposes.

Of course, there will be many ROMs available for the Transformer Pad TF300T, but some might be better than others. For those who can’t decide between them, MultiROM might offer a way for them to make up their mind, or even never at all. MultiROM allows Android devices to have multiple custom ROMs installed all at once. This will let users test out various ROMs and switch between them without having to perform wipes and reinstalls every time. Users can take their pick of custom ROM, provided, of course, the device is supported.

This MultiROM port, however, is not only unofficial but also in the early stages. As such, there will still be some bugs and missing features. For now, it still doesn’t support storing the ROMs on an external SD card, though they can be installed on an external USB drive. Installing Ubuntu Touch as a ROM is also currently unsupported. Other than that, it seems that the MultiROM port is working quite well and might give Transformer Pad owners a new reason to play with their devices again.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T now available – Tegra 4 processor, 2560×1600 display, 2GB DDR3 RAM

transformer pad tf701

During IFA 2013, ASUS announced a plethora of goods soon to be released unto the world. One of those special gadgets was their refreshed Transformer Pad convertible tablet. Last year we had the TF700T, and now comes the newly upgraded ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T.

The TF701T features all the top-of-the-line specs you’d expect from of a high-end Android tablet. ASUS has upgraded the screen resolution and processor to better compete in today’s market. Here’s the quick bullet list:

ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T 2560×1600

  • 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 WQXGA IPS display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor
  • 2GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • 5MP/1.2MP cameras
  • Micro SD slot
  • Micro HDMI port
  • Miracast Wireless Display support
  • Optional keyboard dock w/battery and full-sized USB 3.0 port

 

 

According to ASUS you can get up to 17 hours of battery life using the combo, or a respectable 13 without. This all new Transformer Pad already went up for pre-order a few days ago, but today it’s finally become available on Amazon via EXCaliber PC, albeit at a $50 premium.

Regularly, the Transformer Pad TF70T retails for $450 with Prime 2-day shipping, but it appears to have sold out. If you were looking to pick one up, direct links to the tab and optional $140 keyboard dock provided below.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T goes on sale in the UK on October 21

Android Central

ASUS' latest tablet/laptop hybrid comes packing the specs, yours for £429.99

Initially announced back at IFA 2013 in Berlin, UK availability has finally been confirmed for the latest in the ASUS Transformer Pad line of devices. The catchily named TF701T comes with the now traditional keyboard dock included, and will go on sale in the UK via Amazon and eBuyer on October 21 for £429.99. 

While the name may not capture the imagination, this latest Transformer Pad comes packing in the specs department. Some recent tablet offerings from ASUS have been lacking a little in the display department, but all that goes away with the TF701T. It houses a 2560×1600 resolution 10.1-inch IPS display that looks pretty darn nice. Underneath, NVIDIA's latest Tegra 4 chip pushes everything along backed up by 2GB of RAM. On-board storage is a respectible 32GB and the package also has both micro and full size SD card slots. A USB 3.0 port, HDMI out capable of driving a 4K display and a 5MP/1.2MP rear and front camera combination completes most of the important specs. 

Of course, as with previous Transformer devices from ASUS, the dock also houses extra battery power for the ensemble. A 31Wh battery in the tablet and a 16Wh in the dock combines for a claimed 13 hour and 4 hour split on battery life, so around 17 hours claimed when used together.

Portability Is Not Everything – Top Five 10-Inch Android Tablets (Features, Pricing, Availability)

Ranking the best large Android tablets might seem odd with mere hours left until IFA 2013’s official kick-off. After all, even though 10-inchers are no longer the hottest things in town, they’re still deemed fairly important for the tablet businesses of OEMs such as Sony, Samsung, Asus, Acer and so on and so forth.

Best Android tablets

In other words, odds are the 10-inch slate class will be turned upside down by the IFA unveilings. But will it really? The new Nexus 10 is unlikely to make any sort of cameo appearance in Berlin, Samsung seems to have set its sights higher, Sony looks mostly focused on the Xperia Z1 and Acer has already brought to light the Iconia A3, which is nothing special.

That only leaves Asus with an ace or two up its sleeve, but even if the new Transformer Pad turns out to be spectacular, it’s unlikely to actually go up for sale earlier than next month. So, you see, if you want a 10-inch Android and you want it now, these are your top five choices and will remain so for the foreseeable future:

 5. Asus Transformer Pad TF300T

Tablet/laptop hybrids haven’t taken off as some predicted, both in the Android décor and in the Windows world, but I highly doubt there aren’t people out there that get the benefits of owning a gadget like the TF300T.

ASUS Transformer Pad_TF300

Especially if you’re a student or always-on-the-move professional, there’s nothing cooler than having both a portable, sleek tab and full-sized, fully functional notebook at your disposal. Or, you know, close enough, as the Transformer Pad is a little cramped when used along with its keyboard dock.

And forget about paying an arm and a leg for a 2-in-1 device, as this particular hybrid costs around 300 bucks nowadays with 32 GB of internal storage, plus $100 give or take for the docking station. $400 for the entire ensemble? Dayum, that’s cheap.

But let us talk about specs for a second too, which of course are not exactly high-end material… anymore. Then again, they’re not entry-level either, including a snazzy quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, 1,280 x 800 pix res IPS panel, 1 GB RAM, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and… 8 MP rear camera. Not too shabby, eh?

4. Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700

The 700 works essentially the same as the 300, it also shares a number of design elements, but it clearly ups the ante when it comes to raw performance and display crispness. Not to mention it rocks a much sturdier, more elegant exterior, with aluminum all over the chassis, plus it’s a lot thinner (8.5 vs. 9.9 mm) and lighter (598 vs. 635 grams).

ASUS Transformer Pad_Infinity

The overall piece de resistance is definitely the 1,920 x 1,200 pixels resolution Super IPS+ LCD screen, though my guess is Asus isn’t ashamed with Infinity’s 1.6 GHz quad-core SoC, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or 8 MP camera either.

On the not so bright side, the 700 is much pricier than its “cousin”, going for $420 with 32 GB of on-board memory sans the optional keyboard dock. Ouch!

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

This is a much more conventional tab, in that it can’t seamlessly transform into a mini-laptop, but in a way it’s also focused on functionality and productivity first and foremost, courtesy of its S Pen support and the unique apps that go with it.

Galaxy Note 10.1

One big flaw of the Note 10.1 is that it doesn’t run Android 4.2… yet, although 4.1 is really not that bad. The quality-pricing ratio is a little off as well, since Sammy’s 10-incher sports a fairly modest 1,280 x 800 display and still costs a whopping $450 in a 16 GB flavor.

On the whole though, the Exynos quad-core CPU, 2 GB RAM and massive 7,000 mAh battery should make the Note 10.1 worth your while… and hard-earned money.

2. Sony Xperia Tablet Z

I wanted to rank the Tablet Z at number one, I really did, but as much as the design and hardware leave me breathless, the thing is too darn expensive. $500 with 16 GB of storage? Come on, Sony, you can do better than that.

Sony_Xperia_Tablet_Z

Aside from the pricing, the Z has two big flaws in my eyes. It packs a 6,000 mAh battery, which I’m afraid is petite, and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU that has aged fairly well, but, unlike the Tegra 3, has the disadvantage of being followed by two outstanding chips – the S600 and S800.

Other than that, the design is flawless, you get water and dust protection, which is really unique, the 1,920 x 1,200 display is mind-blowingly crisp, multitasking is a breeze courtesy of 2 GB RAM and there’s even a high-res 8.1 MP camera slapped on the slate’s back.

1. Samsung/Google Nexus 10

Who needs an iPad when the biggest, fanciest Nexus device ever can be had for just 350 bucks, or two thirds of the price of Apple’s leading tab?

And no, the N10 is not only about affordability, running silky smooth software (aka Android 4.3) with no ugly skins on top, plus boasting the most incredible display ever seen on an Android – a Super PLS panel with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels resolution and 299 ppi pixel density.

nexus-10

True, the dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU inside the tab is likely no match for Apple’s A6X when it comes to raw speed, but the 9,000 mAh battery, splendid design, 2 GB RAM and wide array of connectivity options more than make up for it.

Honestly now, don’t you feel a little guilty for ripping Google off when you purchase such an outstanding piece of technology for a more than modest $350? I know I would…

And that’s a wrap, ladies and gents, but be sure to hit back at us with your own personal top five and any future potential contenders you can think of. The floor is all yours.

Snag the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 for as low as $250 from Woot

Most looking for a great deal on an ASUS-manufactured Android slate will turn to the Nexus 7, but if you act within the next 14 hours you can upgrade your act without spending much more than you would for the Google-branded device. As Tech.Woot’s deal of the day, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 can be yours for as low as $249.99 for the 16GB model. The 32GB model isn’t much pricier at $279.99.

Woot was also offering a combo deal that included that ASUS keyboard dock, but it appears as though the option is now sold out. What you get is a refurbished version of the quad-core Tegra 3-powered tablet with a 10.1-inch display, 8MP camera, and ability to combine with the previously mentioned docking station for a more laptop-esque experience. The Transformer Pad ships with Android 4.0 out of the box, but a Jelly Bean update has been made available.

Act quick if you’re looking to snag the spiritual big brother to the Nexus 7 for a very similar price. I’m sure more than a few Android fans wouldn’t mind seeing this bad boy as a gift under the Christmas tree, either.

ASUS Transformer Prime TF201 Receiving Update 10.4.2.17 – Here’s The Full Changelog

thumbASUS hasn’t forgotten Transformer Prime owners – after rolling out Jelly Bean back in September, the company is pushing a small bug fixer over the air with version 10.4.2.17. The update actually began yesterday, but we waited a bit for the official changelog to come through – after all, what’s the point of playing the guessing game if we can’t add anything of value, right?

As I mentioned, the changes are pretty specific and far from critical, but it’s better to see them and know what ASUS didn’t do than run all over TF201′s dark corners looking for something that isn’t there.

We happen to have the official changelog from Asus, and this a pretty substantial bug-fix update that should alleviate some of the issues people have been experiencing with the device. Take a look:

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) Gets Official CM10 Nightlies

asus-transformer-pad-infinity

If you own ASUS’ first full HD tablet – the Transformer Pad Infinity – the custom ROM scene just got quite a bit better for you. Why, you ask? Because the TF700T is now officially support by CyanogenMod, and the first CM10 nightly is already available.

image

Of course, in order to flash this you’ll need to unlock the bootloader, which, in turn, voids the warranty. It’s also worth noting that once you abandon ASUS’ stock firmware, there’s currently no way to go back, despite the fact that ASUS makes the update blobs available (I learned this the hard way with the TF201).

Now, about two months later, ASUS has released the Jelly Bean ROM for the LTE version of the TF300.

Jelly Bean Now Rolling Out To The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) In The US

asus-transformer-pad-infinity

Last week, ASUS promised Jelly Bean to TF201 and TF700 owners, and while the former got its update right on time, there was an issue that prevented the update from being pushed to the latter. As a result, ASUS said the update would be available “early next week.” Here we are, about as early as it can possibly get in the new week, and the OTA has already begun rolling out.

1

As expected, it brings Android 4.1.1 and all the enhancements that come along with it, including Project Butter and Google Now.

You can pull the update by heading into Settings > About tablet > System Firmware Update > Check now.

After delay, Jelly Bean update arrives for ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity

Originally schedule to launch last Friday, the 28th of September, ASUS announced that the Android 4.1 update for their Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) would be delayed until sometime this week. The company’s software department must have worked their tails off over the weekend, as reports are rolling in this morning of Jelly Bean’s arrival for the top-tier slate. We have the visual confirmation straight from our own Android Forums.

The update comes just days after ASUS launched the same new software for the popular Transformer Prime tablet. No word on when or if the Transformer Pad TF300 will receive the same treatment. Head on over to the link below to join in on the discussion and let us know what you think of Android 4.1 on the Transformer Pad Infinity!

[Deal Alert] Transformer Pad 300 And Keyboard Dock For $400 (Normally $527) From NewEgg

2012-09-28_16h23_27One of the nicest options of ASUS’ line of tablets is the keyboard dock with a built-in extra battery that can make your device run forever and much easier to type on. The downside? Those docks tend to cost over $100. In the case of the Transformer Pad 300 (TF300), exactly $127, to be precise. Right now, though, Newegg is offering it for free if you buy it with the tablet. The deal is available in both blue and white options.

2012-09-28_16h22_08

Be sure to check the “2 Item Combo” check box. If you attempt to add the two accessories separately, you won’t get the discount.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Jelly Bean update delayed, should arrive ‘early next week’

Owners of the ASUS Transformer Prime are already enjoying the sweet taste of Jelly Bean, but a new development has caused the update for the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity to be delayed. In a forum post on XDA-Developers, ASUS Technical Marketing Manager Gary Key explained that the company had run into a few technical problems with the keyboard when accessing the recently updated Facebook application.

“For those users in the US and Canada, the 10.4.4.16 Release should be available early next week. A couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the “Comment” area with Android 4.1. Sorry about the slight delay but this fix needed to be implemented before release.”

As usual, ASUS has provided its user base with insight, complete with a legitimate reason and a new time frame. So, while we may have to wait a few extra days, at least we know the company will be rolling out fully-functioning firmware.

Transformer Pad Infinity Jelly Bean Update Delayed In The US And Canada – Should Be Available ‘Early Next Week’

asus-transformer-pad-infinity

Just yesterday, ASUS promised both TF201 and TF700 owners their Jelly Bean updates on September 28th and 29th, respectively. While they owned up to that for the Prime, the Infinity isn’t so lucky: they just had to push the update back.

According to ASUS rep Gary Key, “a couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the “Comment” area with Android 4.1.”

It’s not all bad, though – the update should still begin rolling out early next week. Personally, I’d rather wait a few more days for a fully working OS than have to deal with a buggy system right now, anyway.

ASUS updates TF700 and TF300 with bug fixes, improved performance

ASUS has ended up playing a cruel joke on Transformer Infinity TF700 users today with an update to both the TF700 and Transformer Pad TF300 tablets. Many TF700 users initially thought the update was Jelly Bean, but it turned out to be just a maintenance update that fixes some bugs and improves performance a little. The TF700 update includes updated firmware for the camera, as well as a simplified boot animation. The TF300 received mostly minor bug fixes, since it’s already on Jelly Bean.

ASUS released its Transformer Infinity TF700 tablet back in July, and users have been waiting on a Jelly Bean update ever since, but there’s no word from the company as to when they will be bringing Google’s latest version of Android to the TF700. Hopefully its users will be able to take advantage of Jelly Bean soon, especially since the TF700 is more than capable of running such a sophisticated operating system.

The TF700 runs off of an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor at 1.6GHz with 1GB of RAM. It’s 10.1-inch LED display with a 1920×1200 resolution definitely impresses, and it doesn’t hurt that it has all the necessary amenities like an 8MP camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and 4G LTE. It also sports a microSD card slot and a port for mini-HDMI.

TF700 and TF300 users are seeing their update arrive at different times, so if you haven’t seen an update notification yet, be patient while ASUS rolls it out to you. In the meantime, don’t get your hopes up for Jelly Bean this time. However, hopefully ASUS gets the message that its users seriously want it.

The update is small, mostly updating the camera firmware and fixing some bugs here and there.

If you've got a Transformer Pad TF700T laying around, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates and see if your device is ready to download the update. Once you get it, chime in in the forums and let us know how it's working.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T updated with minor stability fixes

Android Central

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T owners are reporting that they're receiving another over-the-air update today, designed to improve stability of the Tegra 3-based tablet. Since the TF300T has already received its update to Jelly Bean, there are no significant changes to the underlying Android framework. But hopefully this latest OTA will fix some of the performance and usability issues that have been reported by some TF300T owners. The update brings the tablet up to version 10.4.2.13, still based upon the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

If you've got a Transformer Pad TF300T, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates to see if the new version is ready to download onto your tablet. Once you're installed, hit the comments and let us know how you're getting on.
