Asus has introduced an alternative for its customers who wants a quad-core tablet but doesn’t have the budget for the Transformer Prime Tablet, it is the Asus Transformer Pad 300. The Transformer Pad 300 series is a more affordable quad-core tablet, which was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
The new tablet comes equipped with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a 1280×800 pixel resolution which is similar to the screen on the Transformer Prime but instead of Super IPS+, the Transformer Pad 300 will only use a standard IPS display. The Pad 300 Tablet will come with 16GB of on-board storage, unlike the Prime that features an aluminum body, the Pad 300 gets a plastic body to lower cost for consumers.
The Asus Transformer Pad 300 will be available later this year, it comes in the color options of red, white and navy with a price tag of $399 plus it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
