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.
An HTC device known as the PJ58100 made its way through the FCC this morning. The device won approval for GSM and WCDMA 850, 1900 and 1700 bands, along with Bluetooth and WiFi. Support for the WCDMA 1700 band is a good indication that this device will be making an appearance on T-Mobile in the US, and based on information announced by HTC at MWC this week we can conclude that the PJ58100 is the HTC One S.
The One S is a middle-of-the-road Android 4.0 smartphone from HTC that features a 4.3-inch 540×960 screen, 1GB of RAM, dual-core 1.5GHz CPU and an impressive 8MP camera with a F2.0 28mm lens. The One S also measures just 7.8mm thick – making it one of the slimmest HTC devices released to date.
No word yet on pricing or a release date.
