ASUS Transformer Infinity Pad approved by FCC; steps closer to North America
Despite Android's saturated market in both the smartphone and tablet fronts, ASUS' sophisticated tablet and dock options are among the best selling Android tablets. Consumers looking to add productivity in Android tablets have ASUS as their first options, thanks to their feature-filled keyboards for Transformer [Prime] and Transformer Pad 300T.
FCC gave the good news - the Wi-Fi models are safety-approved and should arrive in the U.S. soon enough.
NVIDIA, the creator of Tegra 3, claimed the LTE versions of the chip will arrive later in 2013.
ASUS has another variant of the tablet, which includes a Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip instead of the aforementioned Tegra 3. The dual-core version contains 3G/LTE connectivity and a 16 GB storage option compared to the quad-core version, which only has Wi-Fi, and 32 and 64 GB storage options. More details are shown between the variants here.
Those looking to add a monthly plan on their Infinity Pad will have to wait until further news. Consumers in the market for the Infinity Pad must make a choice between 3G/LTE support or quad-core processing until NVIDIA finishes Project Gray.
