ASUS officially announced the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T for those who prefer model numbers) back at Mobile World Congress in February. In terms of hardware, the Infinity is nearly identical to the Transformer Prime, but it features a higher resolution 1920x1200 Super IPS+ display, improved Wi-Fi and GPS reception, and a higher resolution front facing camera.

Since the official announcement, ASUS has been pretty quiet - it has yet to come out with an official release date or finalized pricing. However, it looks like the time is getting close, as Richie's Room has taken the TF700T for a spin, and even took the time to compare it to the new iPad (the results may surprise you).

First up is the unboxing. Admittedly, this one is a bit silly, as he actually takes the time to highlight the outside of the box. Still, if you're into watching someone talk about a box and open it up to expose the stuff inside, you'll like this one.

This is the Tegra 3 version of the Infinity, not the S4 variant.

For those who are want to see how the TF700T fares against the competition, though, this one's for you:

As you can see, the TF700T has all the makings of the best Transformer to date - now all we need is an official release date. Hear that, ASUS?
