Just as we expected back in early May, ASUS announced a brand new Transformer Pad Infinity tablet at this year’s Computex event, but it’s not as if they were trying to be very secretive. The all-new Infinity features two major updates over last year’s model, being the addition of NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 CPU and 72-core GeForce GPU, as well as the ability to output 4K content via HDMI.
Much like last year’s as well, this Infinity still features an insanely high resolution of 2560 x 1600, a full keyboard docking station and other high-end specs for an Android tablet. (more…)
ASUS has always been a manufacturer you can rely on for timely device updates. To keep that street cred up, ASUS announced through their official Facebook page that they will roll out an Android 4.2 “Jelly Bean” update to owners of the Transformer Infinity starting today. With Android 4.2 on your tablet, you can start taking advantage of the multiple user options, enhanced notifications and system toggles, plus a whole lot more.
If you are the owner of an Infinity tablet, I would start checking for that update right now and throughout the day.

Been looking for a pretty sweet deal on a new tablet? How about a tablet packed with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and a 1920×1200 HD display? Well, Groupon has just the thing for you. For a limited time, you can pick up refurbished ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity tablets (review here) starting at $350. You can choose between either the 32GB or 64GB storage options, plus can choose if you want the matching dock as well, for an additional $80. Considering this device was $500+ at launch, plus more for the dock, this deal is pretty tempting. (more…)
From the amount of tips we’re receiving this morning, it’s safe to say that the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Infinity tablet is live. Last week, users were looking forward to the update to be rolled out, but ASUS had to delay the update for some firmware issues they were having.
Go grab the update and enjoy the JB goodness.

Yesterday, we reported that ASUS would be rolling Jelly Bean out to Transformer Infinity tablets some time within the next 72 hours. Unfortunately, they will have to delay the update until next week. According to a post by Gary Key (an Asus representative) on XDA, there were some applications that required a keyboard firmware update before they can allow Jelly Bean to roll out.
We’ll keep you posted, Infinity owners.
ASUS’ Gary Key took to XDA of all places to announce the plans to roll out Jelly Bean to Transformer Prime (TF201) and Transformer Infinity (TF700) tablets. According to Gary, the updates will be live for US and Canadian owners within the next 72 hours, so get your tablets charged up and ready.
It may not be Jelly Bean for the Infinity, but users can begin to download updates for both the Transformer Infinity (TF700) and Transformer Pad (TF300). For the TF700, it looks like ASUS is bumping up the firmware for the camera and have also simplified the boot animation. Once we get a full changelog, we can update the post. For the TF300, ASUS has already rolled out Jelly Bean so this is more of a maintenance update with some bug fixes and improved performance.
Well, guess I’ll throw this out there – where’s Jelly Bean for the Prime? I’m still waiting, ASUS.
Cheers Ben, Nick, SteveG1253, and Joelseph!
A report from Germany has an interesting bit of information regarding a new ASUS model for the Transformer lineup of tablets. The TF300 is said to be getting an LTE-equipped model that will launch sometime within August under the model number the TF300TL. The documents have the tablet priced starting at €529, which would equate to around $650 here in the States.
One interesting question we are left with is why not put this LTE radio in the TF700 Infinity series that ASUS has moved onto? The new Infinity tablet with the beautiful 1920×1200 display would be much more enticing with LTE than the TF300. The other question is whether or not we will ever see the LTE ASUS tablet Stateside? It would be merging one of the favorite tablet manufacturers and the speed of LTE.
