ASUS this morning at Mobile World Congress just dropped a bombshell of a tablet on us with its new Transformer Pad Infinity Series. The Transformer Pad Infinity Series 700 is going to leave you feeling a bit moist. The 10-inch IPS display has a 1920x1200 resolution at 600 nits. It's powered either by a quad-core Tegra 2 chipset at 1.6 GHz (for the Wifi-only version), or dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm MSM 8960 Snapdragon S4 Krait if it's rocking 3G/4G radios. It's a mere 8.5 mm thick as well, and features an optoinal keyboard dock, for which ASUS has made quite the name for itself.

The ASUS "700" model is just a refined "Prime 201" ASUS tablet with a few tweaks...both of which have blazing speed. These are the fastest Android tablets to date, and share the same physically-skinny profile. Both run Android 4.x (Ice Cream Sandwich).

The Padfone was shown (below) at CES 2012, where it won a Design Showcase Award. It is anticipated to have alot of popularity in the Pacific Rim and European markets where multiple mobile devices are often carried around. By combining a tablet and phone, it simplifies that scenario.

Neat stuff from ASUS.

With both a Transformer and a Prime, I think I'll pass on these:) Beautiful shiny instruments of power though, I think this is the tf700t that's been mentioned as coming later this year.
Very cool!

I bet now after the ICS update for both...you're enjoying those all the more.

But yes, the new units are expected to see the retailer shelves in the next 3-5 months some time...online perhaps 30 days before that time.

ICS has definitely improved the tf101 which is now my wife's. The Prime is all mine and only had honeycomb on it for a very short time. Have you tried the ICS Browser+? It's an improvement, but will get better.
Yes, I tried it over the weekend...as you indicated...they still have some work to do on it.

Honestly, the stock browser works just fine (and even better since the Ice Cream Sandwich update) 99.9% of the time here.

As for the 2 new tablets in the OP...some of that surrounds re-branding and some around additional tweaks in the features.
