One of this year’s most successful portable devices has to be the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, recently we heard how it will be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, then we heard that a successor was on the way, now we have some information regarding the Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 technical specifications.
Sadly we don’t have a full breakdown of specs for you, however what we do know is that it will boast the same form-factor as its predecessor (a 10-inch display with a detachable keyboard) and we can also confirm that it will be powered by one of Nvidia’s Kal-El quad-core SoC quad-core processors (you can find out all about Kal-El here), but that’s not all – there will also be USB and mini-HDMI ports and an SD card reader.
We don’t have dimensions either, but if you check out AllThingsD you can see a few sneak peaks of the Transformer 2, ignoring the keyboard the tablet is just 8.3mm thick, which makes its big brother seem a bit chubby (12.98mm).
All of this information was recently revealed by Jonney Shih (Asus CEO), we can confirm that it will run Ice Cream Sandwich – however it is unclear as to whether this will come installed out-of-the-box, or if a subsequent update will bring it. If you were worried about battery life we are told that you should get up to 14.5 hours of usage from a single charge.
Sadly that’s all we know for now, however we are told that an official announcement will come on November 9, therefore we should have some press images, videos and full tech specs by then – follow me on Twitter for the latest news.
Do you own the Asus Eee Pad Transformer? If so, how would you like its success to differ?
