Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T Release Date
news and announcements
Jelly Bean coming to the Asus Transformer Pad Prime and Infinity
September 26, 2012
Good news! Asus has just confirmed that its Transformer Pad Infinity and ASUS Transformer Pad Prime will be receiving the latest Android operating system very soon. Is this good news to you? "We are pleased to announce that we will soon be rolling out the Android 4.1, Jelly Bean update for both the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) and ASUS Transformer Pad Prime (TF201)," Asus said.
ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T Launches (Limited Quantities)
ASUS is great, but the company doesn't know how to meet a deadline. The TF700T Trasnformer Pad Infinity should have hit stores during the last quarter, but we're happy to see it arrive in stores this weekend. Better late...
So far, we only know of one store that is shipping it, and that's Office Depot. You can only order two per customer, so we imagine stock is limited. In the past, Office Depot has accidentally published listings for products that haven't been released, but the company was quick to take the listings down when it happened. We've carefully watched this page today, and it looks legit. Though it does concern us that no other retailers have put the tablet up for sale, there's been no evidence of foul play (cheap publicity stunts or stupid mistakes) so far.
Coming to AT&T: the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) and Padfone by ASUS
ASUS's Transformer Infinity and Padfone are two highly-anticipated devices that will see a proper release on AT&T. We don't know exactly when it's happening, but it's definitely happening, according to an ASUS rep that spoke Android Authority. We think July or August are likely launch months. Even September is a good possibility.
This is some great news. For a second there, we though the Padfone was going to turn out to be vaporware. Thankfully, that's not the case.
Transformer Pad TF300T Shipping April 22? TF700T shipping in June?
The latest information leak out of PC World suggest the TF300T tablet by ASUS will start shipping April 22. The "accidental" release that occurred earlier this month was not official. Those initially available units are no longer available, but that should change again after the weekend.
