This week we’re being treated to a fine piece of ASUS engineering the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T tablet, shown below. We’ve unboxed this device for you to see in the video below and we’ve got more details after the break.


Showcased at IFA 2013 last month, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T is the very first Tegra 4 slate we’ve ever reviewed. The device should go for about $399 without keyboard or $499 with it. It’s coming in a few weeks in stores and it runs Android 4.2. The case is the typical metal affair and the design is largely similar to previous Transformer Pads.


We’ve got a 10.1 inch display on board with a Super IPS+ LCD panel, that offers a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution.  Under the hood there’s a quad core Nvidia Tegra 4 1.9 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage. There’s WiFi on board, Bluetooth, Miracast and we’ve got a combo between a 5 MP back camera and a front 1.2 MP shooter.

There’s Sonicmaster audio technology available here, a microHDMI port integrated and a microSD card slot. The dock of the device integrates an USB 3.0 port and an SD card slot. The battery on the tab is a 31 Wh unit, while the dock has a 16 Wh battery. We’ll be back with more details once the review is done.
