Asus Shipping New Transformer Pad Convertible Tablets To Australia

Asus has a lot of gear on display at Computex, and Australia will see it on store shelves within a few months, starting with the new Transformer Pad convertible tablets. Here’s what you get for your money.

The new entry-level Asus Transformer Pad TF103C is packing a 1.83GHz quad-core 64-bit Intel Atom chip, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, all packed under a 10.1 1280×800 WXGA IPS panel.

It all runs on Android 4.4, and bolted on top you’ve also got a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and 9.5 hours worth of battery life.

The TF103C will set you back $$429 for the 16GB version with the additional keyboard dock, but Asus is thinking about selling an unbundled version featuring just the 16GB tablet for a lower price.

You’ll be able to buy it through JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman and The Good Guys from July.

If the entry-level model isn’t packing enough power for you, however the LTE version — the Transformer Pad TF303CL — might be for you.

It’s still running the 1.86GHz quad-core 64-bit Intel Atom processor, but you’ll get 2GB of RAM as opposed to 1GB, a choice between 16GB and 32GB of internal storage, a higher resolution 1920×1200 10.1-inch screen and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

Because it’s packing LTE, it’s going to take a little longer to get into the country. We’ll keep you update if and when we get a release date and price for the premium model.
