Info about the Transformer Pad 300's availability has been slowly showing up more and more often over the past few weeks. Now, thanks to Amazon, we have all of the last bits of information that we needed about this powerhouse-in-a-plastic-body device, including price and release date.

As you can see, the TP300 will be available on April 22, along with a whole slew of other Android devices (Galaxy Tab 2 7, Sprint Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and LG Optimus Elite). And for $400, this thing packs a punch:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1.2Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • Plastic chassis
  • Android 4.0
Looks like Amazon thinks that the 300 should have 2GB of RAM, but rest assured, that's just a typo.

Given the fact that the original Transformer is still going for $359 for the 16GB version, the TP300 is going to be an absolute steal when it finally hits. If you plan on picking one of these up, you better hurry up and get your order in, because something tells me they're going to go sell out fast.
