It’s time for Computex once again and Asus has some grand plans to make the best of one of the biggest trade shows on its own home soil. The company, which has to its credit the Transformer line of tablet devices, has announced the next generation of the popular tablet PCs will be unveiled next week during the Computex event. The Transformer, which owes its name to its unique ability to hook onto a keyboard dock (transforming the tablet into a mini laptop) has been among the better selling Android tablets. Also, another strong point for the Transformer series is its excellent battery backup times, which run into 10+ hours.
The Transformer Prime is the second generation device after the Transformer. Asus has since launched the Transformer Pad and the Transformer Pad Infinity, with the latter being the company’s flagship tablet. While the Transformer Pad can be considered to be a rung below the Transformer Prime, The Transformer Pad Infinity boasts a HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The Transformer Prime also happens to be the first tablet that has been built around the Tegra 3 quad core chip.
Asus hasn’t stated what the new addition to the already quite illustrious Transformer family will be like. A teaser video is all that the company has revealed for now and that does precious little to satiate our curiosity. Thankfully, we won’t be kept waiting too long, since Computex gets underway just next week at Taipei. Until then, a few more teaser videos along with maybe even a few leaks might come along. Also, apart from the new Transformer Prime, what we would also like Asus to do is announce the world wide availability of the Transformer Pad Infinity. The flasgship tablet is much in demand but has yet to reach markets in spite of having been announced almost three months back during Mobile World Congress in Berlin.
The video starts with the famous Bruce Lee quote: “don’t get set in one form, adapt it and build your own.”
