Asus Working on New TF300T Tablet?

Posted on 05 February 2012, Last updated on 05 February 2012 by

Though Asus has the top-of-the-line Transformer Prime available, it seems they’re already working on a new tablet. German news site (German link) picked up a story from (Chinese link) which shows what appears to be a new tablet that Asus is working on.

There’s not a whole lot of information available aside from the photos, but this is purportedly the “TF300T” model which, if true, would likely mean that this is an entirely new offering from Asus, rather than an incremental improvement from the Transformer Prime. The original Transformer has the model number TF101 while Asus’ most recent release, the Transformer Prime, has the model number TF201.

The Transformer Prime has the very latest Nvidia Tegra 3 platform, along with the famous dockable keyboad, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a 1280×800 IPS display; it’s hard to imagine what Asus could add to a new model at this point. Perhaps they’ll be adding a high resolution screen, or follow in the footsteps of Samsung and add an AMOLED display. It’s also possible that this is simply a regional model with some different aesthetics than the Transformer Prime, but again, the model number makes that seem unlikely.

What would you wish for in a tablet from Asus that the Transformer Prime doesn’t already have?
