ASUS presents the Transformer Pad TF502T running on Android
Over a year ago ASUS launched the Windows RT running ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T tablet. Back then the specs of the slate are very impressive for its category of devices. Now the company is refreshing the model by releasing a similar tablet dubbed ASUS Transformer Pad TF502T working on the Android platform.
The new device reminds a lot to its predecessor that debuted in the mobile arena in 2012. Transformer Pad TF502T boasts sleek design and very thin panel, just 8.3mm thick. Similar to the VivoTab RT TF600T, the new tablet sports a 10.1-inches Super IPS+ screen with a resolution of 768 x 1366 pixels. Under the hood of the slate is working a quad-core CPU with Nvidia Tegra 3 chip coupled with 2GB RAM. Owners of Transformer TF502T have at their disposal 32GB storage out of the box along with 32GB WebStorage space courtesy by ASUS for the next 3 years. It is equipped with an 8MP rare camera. The tablet runs on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Among its extra features are NFC supports, keyboard dock etc.
The new model ASUS Transformer Pad TF502T is not officially launched just yet. However it already has its Bluetooth SIG approval which means that we will not have to wait much longer for the Android-running tablet to hit the markets. ASUS has not revealed details about the price of the device. The predecessor of the model, the VivoTab RT TF600T costs $299.99 in Amazon. The expectations about the costs for the new tablet suggest similar if not cheaper price when it gets officially launched. It is still not certain whether the Taiwanese manufacturer will release the tablet in the States.
The online retailer Amazon is offering screen protectors for the Transformer Pad TF502T which gives us the clue that it is more likely to see the tablet in the US retailers in the coming months. The information from the Bluetooth SIG reveals Asia, Australia, Europe and North America as the areas for geographic availability for the model.
