Asus sets ship date for Transformer Pad 300 tablet

ASUS logoAsus has comfirmed that the official ship date for its new quad core Transformer Pad 300 tablet is April 22. The Android-based tablet - which is being positioned as a laptop replacement - will support 4G LTE connectivity.

The long-awaited tablet boasts a 10.1-inch screen and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, along with Google Android 4.0 (ICS).

Asus has yet to provide official pricing for the device; however, the tablet has been spotted for pre-order online at a cool $399 with 32 GB of storage and 1GB of memory.

The 300 is somewhat similiar to the Transformer Prime, but starts at a lower price. Buyers can opt for an optional keyboard dock that will expand battery life up to 15 hours (standard battery life is 10 hours). The 10.1-inch screen resolution is 1280 x 800 pixels and in addition to LTE, the tablet will support Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

Rounding out the hardware is an eight-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera. The tablet is equipped with a micro-HDMI output to connect directly to the TV, as well as a microSD card slot for memory expansion.

Frankly, at a $400 starting price this entry-level tablet is probably unlikely to lure a huge number of buyers away from Apple's new iPad, as the cheapest version of the widly popular tablet starts at $500. It's not clear what the keyboard accessory will cost at this time, but will probably weigh in around the $80-$100 range.
