The Asus TF300 is the latest version, but it isn’t the most expensive version. It’s a cheaper version of the Eeee Pad Transformer Price.
Although the TF300 is cheaper, not too much has been reduced in the offering. It packs a slightly slower processor, smaller battery (battery life reduced to 8.5 hours from 10 hours on the prime) and no flash for the camera.
The 16GB model has a list price of $379, with the 32GB model asking just $20 more at $399. We’re excited to see that Amazon is already shipping out the 32GB model for the asking price of $399.
Even though the Asus TF300 might seem like a “cut down” version, it is still a very impressive tablet indeed. The transformer family have been selling like hotcakes since they were first announced, and I feel that the TF300 version has been created to capture more of the market by offering a lower price making them more accessible.
The 10.1-Inch Asus Transformer TF300 has a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, powered by the 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tega 3 quad-core processor, with Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, GPS, a microSD card reader for expanding the storage space, and a microHDMI output for connecting it to a HDTV or computer monitor.
It runs the latest Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, has a rear 8MP camera (but remember no flash… no biggie) and a 1.2MP front facing camera.
As with all previous “Transformer” tablets, the tablet “transforms” by allowing you to connecting it to a docking keyboard, which also include a battery boosting the battery life by 5 more hours.
