It’s always a tricky thing launching combo concept’s. The idea of having a Phone transform into a tablet might have its perks, but the fear of getting a “cramped” tablet could prove to be a deal breaker. Is this the “second coming of Christ” or just another cool gadget that will end up in the box where old gadgets go to die?
So I had a month now with my ASUS Infinity TF700, and it’s JUST DOPE!
(Jelly Bean 4.1)
This is what I use it for (and it works flawless)
– Streaming 1080p material from my Windows Home Server
– Work related, mail, reading documents and minor editing (Polaris Office)
– Skype, video calls, regular calls and chat
– Web browsing with the stock browser (Android 4.1)
– Facebook, twitter, blog writing etc.
Build quality is just amazing, (it’s not built like a tank) it’s built with the design and feeling in mind foremost. Be aware, this is not a tablet you wanna drop in the floor. But it just looks amazing and it’s light weight.
The Super IPS+ screen is far better than I could hope for – I tried my fair share of screens on both tablets and phones and this kills them them all right now. The 1920×1200 resolution Full HD is very nice and watching a 1080p movie is a real treat. With the Super IPS mode activated I can even sit outside reading without problem.
The only negative I can come up with so far is the speaker. It’s placed on the back right side and in landscape mode it’s to easy to cover it with your hand. This is by far no dealbreaker, but it needs to be pointed out.
Right now I have my eyes set on the ASUS PadPhone 2 for work, but for home entertainment no one should hesitate to check out the ASUS Infinity TF700T. It just might be the best tablet around for the moment.
The wait for the JB firmware is over. So when are the next fw due?..
