The entertaining character that is Asus boss Jonney Shih took to the stage at Computex 2013 in Taipei on Monday to introduce a slew of new tech products.
Among them is a refresh of the Transformer Pad Infinity, a tablet that first saw the light of day early last year.
The new updated version has some notable improvements – the device’s 10.1-inch IPS display, for example, has been bumped up to 2560 x 1600 pixels and offers an absurdly-wide 178-degree viewing angle, plus 10-point multi-touch for smooth and responsive fingertip control.
Also, it now comes with a powerful 1.9GHz quad-core Tegra 4 processor and is capable of 4K output via its HDMI port.
Other specs include 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a USB 3.0 port, an SD-card slot, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front. A redesigned keyboard dock now incorporates a multi-touch touchpad.
“I’m very proud of it,” Jonney said to the audience of gathered tech reporters. And judging by the size of the smile on his face, he wasn’t kidding.
As for a release date and pricing information for the Android-powered tablet, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear.
