For those of you who have a Transformer Prime, you may want to think about closing this article, because this will probably be tough to hear. Your “new” tablet is just about to be replaced by something even “newer”! According to a recent report by PC World, Asus is expected to ship the Asus Transformer [...]
And then there were... four? Once considereda novelty, 8-inch Windows tablets are now everywhere: Lenovohas one; so doesToshiba; and Acer is already onits second. Not to be left out, Dell recently started shipping theVenue 8 Pro, which costs about the same as its competitors ($300), but adds an active digitizer for pen input (psst: The stylus is sold separately).
We have started to hear some new rumors of Asus products that are coming to market. The rumors suggest that a pair of new Transformer Pad devices are in the works. Those devices include the Transformer Pad TF303 and the TF103. Details on both of these products are very slim at this time.
We generally don't have time to review low-end products, but sometimes we see something at such an aggressive price we just have to take it for a spin. That pretty much describes our feelings about the ASUS Transformer Book T100 , a 10-inch Windows tablet that comes with a keyboard dock in the box -- all for just $349.
After a few new iterations of its PadFone line, it seems that ASUS is casting a glance on its Transformer Pad devices again. Rumored to be coming soon is a Transformer Pad TF303 and another with a model number TF103. Judging by the names, we can presume that these will be upgrades of previous existing devices, the TF300 and TF101, respectively.
ASUS‘ latest tablet/laptop hybrid powerhouse has had quite a long history, encompassing two versions. That journey is, hopefully, now over and interested buyers will be able to get their hands on the Transformer Pad T701T Monday next week.
New details from a Twitter source seem to confirm recent reports that Google has tapped Asus as the hardware maker for the refreshed Nexus 10 tablet. Once expected to come from Samsung, we learned in August that Asus was in production with the successor.The screen you see above is said to come from PC World UK’s internal inventory system and shows a £349.99 price point. Converted to US dollars we come up with approximately $560, or a pretty penny.

Here's yet another gloomy report for the PC market. Even though 2013 was the worst decline on record, the market hasn't hit rock bottom yet and will continue to shrink until at least 2018, market research firm IDC says . In 2013, the PC market declined by 9.8%, IDC says. That's a tiny bit better than how IDC thought it would go down — it had predicted a 10.1% decline.
The ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T should soon be available for purchase in the US market. In fact, it looks like some pre-orders have already begun showing up. ASUS has yet to fully detail the US availability, however similar to previous model tablets, this one should hit a variety of retailers. For now though, the tablet has been spotted with ExcaliberPC.
Can Intel's 'Bay Trail' Chip Save Windows Tablets? Windows has had a tough time in the tablet arena. The iPad is far and away still the most popular tablet in the world, even though Windows 8 , which was supposed to make the platform a serious contender, has had a year to gain traction.
Today Microsoft released invites to its forthcoming Surface 2.0 event in New York City. The shindig, taking place in Chelsea on the 23 of September, will show off new Surface hardware, though Microsoft remains coy about just what it will put onstage.Let’s be frank: Microsoft would not invite us all over for a hands-on session without having something worth touching. And that means it’s more than a new Touch Cover. And that means a new Surface (or two!), as expected.
Among the announcements about wearable gadgets and conflict-free microprocessors in Intel's CES keynote on Monday was a brief tip of the hat to Intel's bread and butter: the PC. The main announcement was a confirmation of rumors from late last week, in which Intel was said to be working on a "Dual OS" initiative that would put Android and Windows 8.
It seems that all rumors will finally be laid to rest next week as ASUS is set to announce the PadFone mini. However, the question will remain whether there is room for this smaller and weaker sibling of the newly launched PadFone Infinity.Rumors of the device didn’t start with a leaked photo or benchmark results but with simply a name on ASUS’ smartphone strategy presentation.
Until now, ASUS hasn't had much competition in dockable Android tablets. Sure, we've seen the odd model from Lenovo and other companies, but for the most part, "Transformer" has become one of those words like "Kleenex" -- you know, the kind that refers just as much to a category as a specific brand.
ASUS plans to release a tablet hybrid next month running Intel’s Atom Bay Trail processors, the ASUS Transformer Book T100 loaded with Windows 8.1. Earlier today, Intel revealed its plans for the Bay Trail processors, saying they were aiming them at Windows 8 and Android tablets and other similar devices.
Giving owners of its slightly older PadFone devices something to look forward to, ASUS has announced an Android 4.4 update coming their way. Though the update won't be arriving until later this year, it should at least give current users some hope for their devices.
