Asus Releases Bootloader Unlock Tool for Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T

How can you not love Asus? And when I say that, try to envision me staring directly at Verizon’s person in charge of network security.

If you weren’t aware, the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) ships with a locked bootloader. However, if you want to unlock it, you can use the bootloader unlock tool that Asus released this week. Once unlocked, your device will not be covered by the original warranty and it cannot be re-locked. Most of you understand that and will probably do it anyway.

To grab the file, hit up the Asus link below and get to unlocking. After installing it on your tablet, simply run it.

Asus on Jelly Bean Updates: Transformer Pad, Transformer Prime, and Pad Infinity Receiving It in the “Coming Months”

Asus dropped a note into the DL offices this morning to update us on the status of Jelly Bean for their Transformer line of tablets. According to this statement, the Transformer Pad, Transformer Prime, and Pad Infinity will all receive Android 4.1, however, the only time frame they would give us is “in the coming months.” Asus has typically been faster than any other OEM on the planet when it comes to updates, so don’t be surprised if it happens fairly quickly.  (more…)

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Available at Office Depot?

Did I miss the press release on this one? Last we had heard, Asus was still targeting a July 16 or “later” launch for the Transformer Pad Infinity, but according to Office Depot’s site, you can buy it today for $499. It doesn’t even look like a pre-order. You can walk-through the entire checkout process and have your new Pad Infinity in 3 days thanks to free shipping.

We reviewed the Pad Infinity back in June, calling it a solid product with the best screen of any Android tablet to date. It’s tough to deny that a 1920×1200 display with 224ppi is anything short of beautiful. The Pad Infinity also sports a new Tegra 3 chip that is clocked higher than the T3 we have seen in any other device to date, making this one powerful gaming and media consumption device.

It’ll be interesting to see if this tablet stays available or if we have discovered another “Ooopsie!” moment.

First Look: Asus Transformer Infinity Tablet

Here is the first look at Asus’ newest member to the Transformer line of tablets – the Transformer Infinity. To many tablet enthusiasts, this will be the absolute peak of what an Android tablet can be at this time. With a Tegra 3 clocked at 1.6GHz (benchmarking at 1.9Ghz), a display that rivals the iPad at 1920×1200 resolution, and a superior build quality that resembles the Transformer Prime’s, Asus is looking to further themselves from all other competitors.  (more…)
