Asus announced what seemed to be a more affordable option of its Transformer Prime back in MWC 2012, the Transformer Pad 300 tablet. Now apparently the device has appeared in a France-based retailer’s website with the 32GB model listed for 499 Euros which is about $650 but there has been no official word with regards to the device’s pricing in the US. When the tablet was announced, Asus said that it would offer a cheaper variant of the Transformer Pad 300 which is the 16GB one and it looks like we have some good news in that aspect.
The folks over at TheVerge have found out from a retailer, J&R that the 16GB version be released with a price tag of $379 in the US. The Asus Transformer Pad 300 will come with a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and a 10.1-inch touch screen display. The screen will have a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The device will also be fitted with 1GB of RAM along with the 16GB of storage space for the variant that is said to be priced at $379.
Unlike the Transformer Prime’s aluminum casing, the Pad 300 will be fitted with a plastic casing along with a keyboard dock. Also available is optional LTE and not to forget Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. With the prospect of a Tegra 3 run tablet PC that is more affordable than the Asus Eee Transformer Prime, are you looking forward to this one then? Let us know with a comment below.
