Asus PadFone Infinity Launched
The Asus PadFone Infinity has a 5-inch 1080p display, LTE connectivity, and is powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, which puts it on par with the best around. The “Pad” side of the product, which Asus calls the “Infinity Station,” features a 10.1-inch 1080p display as well as another battery.
The Asus PadFone Infinity comes out to 441 ppi, Additionally, the tablet’s 10.1-inch screen has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200, up from 1,280 x 800 in the last-gen model. It’s plenty bright, too, at 400 nits, but that’s a slight step down from the last-gen model, which lit up to 500 nits.
1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 chip with an Adreno 320 GPU, some of the freshest components Qualcomm has to offer at the moment. Also on-board, you get 2GB of RAM to help boost performance, with your choice of either 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage. As far as connectivity, you’re looking at EDGE, GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, LTE and DC-HSPA+, along with all the usual radios: WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, A-GPS and even GLONASS. Around back, ASUS has added a 13-megapixel autofocusing camera with an LED flash, five-element, f/2.0 lens and burst shooting at eight fps. There’s a front camera too, capped at 2MP, a slightly bigger 2,400mAh battery promises up to 19 hours of 3G talk time, and up to 40 with the dock attached.
Like every other PadFone that’s been released, this one won’t be available in the US, but the phone-and-dock combo will cost around £799 (VAT included)/ €999 when it goes on sale there this April.
