ASUS’ Transformer Pad hits the FCC, brings quad-core Tegra 3 computing to the lower end of the market
News of ASUS’s Transformer Pad (TF300T) have been leaking since early February, and a few weeks later ASUS officially unveiled the device at MWC. Today, the FCC put their stamp of approval on the device, granting the Transformer Pad approval for its WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities.
FCC documents don’t reveal anything new about the Transformer Pad, particularly since ASUS gave us the goods on the device earlier this week. Billed as a cost effective alternative to the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 10.1-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 16GB of internal storage, and front (2MP) and rear (8MP) cameras. Like the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad will run Android 4.0 ICS.
ASUS hasn’t yet announced pricing or availability for the Transformer Pad, but today’s FCC filing is a good sign that we’ll see the device soon.
