Transformer Infinity Pad Tablet
By Ogunleye George
The Taiwanese Company ASUS, still maintains their stance as the best known motherboard supplier. The offshoot of this could be noticed in the 2011 release of the pseudo-tablet computer called the EeePad Transformer.
The computing device was more like a laptop-esque hybrid, whose detectable ‘tablet-keyboard’ transforms it.
Transformer Prime was released later in 2011 to augment the cons of the EeePad, mostly improving on the original design, now it’s the dawn of the Transformer Infinity Pad Tablet. The 10.1-inch tablet is pitching its tent among the highest resolution screens offered on Android tablets, with image pixilation of 1920x1200.
The tablet will run the Android 4.0 operating system with optional 3G/4G mobile broadband connectivity. The tablet is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip for models focused on gaming and multimedia or a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip for models with 3G/4G LTE connectivity.
Taking a tour around the device, the selection of ports hasn't changed either.
On the bottom, there's a trio of connectors allowing the tablet to fit snugly in the optional keyboard dock.
The left landscape side is home to a micro-HDMI socket, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack and uncovered microSD slot. On the top edge, is the volume rocker and the power/ lock button.
Transformer Infinity has a full HD display as against iconic display of retina display iPad 3 which is still one of a kind. The iPad 3’s 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS multi-contact screen has a resolution of 1536×2048 pixels making it the highest tablet pixel density(264ppi) available.
The spectacular 224ppi of the
Transformer Infinity is not a feat coupled with the 10.1-inch Super IPS display made of the scratch resistant new Gorilla Glass 2, which allows for confident readability and 10 fingers multi-touch typing.Operating system wise, Google’s Android platform still offers its freedom and customizable user interface but crash-free expertise is still not guaranteed, and the version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that runs on the T-Infinity is not exempted.
Apple’s iPad tablet runs the iOS model 5.1, although with non-customizable user interface which is probably the steadiest OS platforms.
Flipping Infinity tablet around, there is an 8-megapixel, integrated camera with LED flash (There's also a 2-megapixel webcam tucked into the front bezel), as against the 5-megapixel camera with backlight-illuminated sensor of the iPad 3; the 2592×1944 pixels resolution camera has a 5-stage lens configuration.
Both can possess quite similar features such as embody touch focus, auto focus, picture stabilization, video stabilization but iPad 3 has greater option coupled with its trendy face detection.
The processing power of the Infinity pad is commendable and cost effective, its storage and connectivity options out smart that of the iPad 3 and weighs less than the iPad (586g)with 263m by 180.8 mm and 8.5 mm of thickness, alternatively Apple’s iPad 3 is 241.2 mm by 185.7 mm, 9.4mm thick and weighs 652g.
Both slates have rich application store backbone, the Apple store for iPad 3 and Google Play for the Android base transformer infinity tablet, thus productivity apps are limitless.
