At Computex in Taipei, Taiwan, Asus just presented the Transformer Pad Infinity, an Android tablet that seems to be targetet directly at the iPad crowd–which comprises of loads of photographers. With hi-dpi screens becoming more and more the standard in mobile computing devices, Asus jumped onto the bandwagon and fitted its latest Android tablet with a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel IPS panel, significantly out-resolving the latest generation of Retina iPads. In addition to the gorgeous 10″ screen, the Transformer Pad Infinity sports a 1.9 GHz Tegra 4 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (extendable), the usual wireless connectivity and the capability to output a 4K UHD signal via HDMI (to select screens.)
The Transformer Pad Infinity can be fitted with an optional keyboard dock that will deliver extra power as well as additional periphery ports such as USB 3.0 and an SD card slot. All this goodness combined with the numerous photo-related apps in the Google Play Store make this a viable option for photographers versus the current iPad model. Release date and pricing haven’t been disclosed yet.
