TF701T-Thumb

The ASUS Transformer series may not be a household name, but it's one of the oldest Android tablet brands around. Each release has been solid, and the latest Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T kicks things up a notch. Anyone in the US waiting to get their hands on this combination tablet and keyboard dock will be happy to know that it's now available on Amazon.

The tablet ships for $449, and the dock is sold separately, just as it has always been.

A couple of weeks ago, we tipped you off to a pretty great deal on a 32GB Transformer Pad Infinity from Woot. The first sale must have been a success because Tech.Woot is back with the 64GB model for just $440 + $5 shipping. Amazon's price has never dipped below $480 for this exact model, and it currently resides at $530.

When it comes to using a tablet as a laptop replacement, the first place anybody should look is the ASUS Transformer line. At the top of that hill stands the TF700T, reviewed here. If you happen to be in the market, Woot is offering the Transformer Pad Infinity for just $369.99 + $5 shipping. These are new units, not refurbished.

I know, you're wondering why a tablet released 9 months ago would still be attractive.

When the official 4.2 update started rolling out to the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, one of the things I was most looking forward to was switching to the updated launcher. Unfortunately, ASUS decided to omit this option, which happens to be readily available on the TF300 with 4.2. Feeling disappointed and sad, I turned the TF700 off and set it to the side.

Thanks to a comment left on our TF700 Jelly Bean ROM download post from earlier today, my spirits were once again lifted.

ASUS started pushing Android 4.2.1 to the Transformer Pad Infinity exactly one week ago, but if you've been waiting for the blob to hit the company's download site for whatever reason, it's available now. This makes available build 10.6.1.14.4 to those who wish to manually flash (or need to recovery after a catastrophic event).

Currently the full firmware download is available for the US (United States), WW (Worldwide), and TW (Taiwan) versions of the HD tablet.

Update: It looks like the TF700 isn't the only device new to the CM10.1 world; nightly builds are also available for the Nexus 7 (grouper) and GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus (maguro).

The CyanogenMod team has been steadily working on getting Android 4.2 ready for nightly status, with builds already available for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The newest member of the CM 10.1 family is ASUS' flagship 10" tablet: the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700).

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.
