ASUS has confirmed its flagship Android tablet for 2012, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, will launch in Australia early next month. The tablet will come bundled with a keyboard dock and will retail for $899.

The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is a follow-up to the company's Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet, which was released in Australia earlier this year. The Infinity is an almost identical tablet to its predecessor but boasts an improved screen and a higher resolution front camera.

The key feature of the Transformer Pad Infinity appears to be a 10.1in super IPS+ screen with an impressive 1920x1200 resolution. In comparison, almost all current 10in Android tablets use a 1280x800 resolution display panel.

ASUS will sell the Transformer Pad Infinity's keyboard dock as an optional accessory in other markets, but the company will bundle this with all Australian models of the device. The keyboard dock adds an extra six hours of battery life to the Infinity's stand-alone 10 hour battery life when connected, therefore producing a total battery life of up to 16 hours.

An ASUS spokesperson confirmed to PC World Australia that the company will sell the 64GB Wi-Fi-only version of the Transformer Pad Infinity in Australia from "early July". The 32GB model, slated for release in some other international markets, will not be sold Down Under.

ASUS also confirmed it will not launch a 3G model of the Transformer Pad Infinity in Australia, saying there are "no plans" for the 3G version "at this stage."

Globally, ASUS will sell 3G and 4G LTE models of the Transformer Pad Infinity. Both of these versions use a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait dual-core processor instead of the Tegra 3 quad-core chip that powers the Wi-Fi only model.

Australian models of the 64GB Wi-Fi-only ASUS Transformer Infinity TF700T will be available in "champagne gold" and "amethyst grey" colours.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
