The Asus Transformer Pad 300 (note the lack of Eee in the name there) was originally unveiled back at Mobile World Congress in February.
Essentially it’s a slightly downgraded Asus Transformer Prime, and turns out it boasts a pretty reasonable sounding price tag.
We’re told the Asus Transformer Pad 300 will go for £399 (16GB), with the keyboard dock. That’s not too shabby, huh?
Its big brother, the Asus Transformer Prime, is currently going for £630 (32GB) - again with the keyboard - on Amazon.
Shared specs include a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 8MP/1.2MP camera combo, HDMI out and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on operating system duties.
However, the Asus Transformer Pad 300 has a comparatively modest IPS display (as opposed to Super IPS+ on the Transformer Prime), and a plastic rear – which should allay concerns of Wi-Fi problems.
PC World and Currys will have an online exclusive from early May; in-store availability will follow later in the month; and other retailers will offer the Asus Transformer Pad 300 from late June.
The colours are all over the place for some reason. You’ll be able to grab the Asus Transformer Pad 300 in Royal Blue on release, followed by Iceberg White in late June and Torch Red in late July.
