    Pretty sure no one cares lol .

    This actually sounds pretty good – really looking forward to the review.

    As you wrote, Apple has such influence that the Android makers have no choice but to respond to Apple – consumers want that which Apple has decided is important. First that was thin and light, but now that is screen resolution.

    And in that regard, 1920×1080 or 1920×1200 are ideal resolutions on a 10″ tablet. Very high resolution, sticking to common standard resolutions, and not going over-board.

      Wow, specs look good….device looks good….unfortunately when you turn it on it has Android installed. Guess it’s true what they say about pigs and makeup. I’ll wait for the real version to come out later this year with Windows 8 installed on it so I can actually do something with it.

    Apple is suing Samsung for tablets that look less like a iPad then this. I can see it coming. Me I’ll probably get rid of my original iPad for a Windows 8 tablet or the Transformer Prime from Asus.

  • LEKO

    If it sells at 449$, this would hit the Asus sales or Asus will have to react.

    Asus Transformer Prime is not FHD, it’s only 1280×800

    I wish 2GB RAM.

  • Alex Davies

    @wlee – yes, you are right the regular Prime is not FHD. But the unreleased TF700T version is (it was also announced at CES). I clarified that in the post above, and linked to a post on The Verge about it.

  • Sub-Joker

    anybody knows how the TF700T will be priced??
    I might get one if the price of the Asus is considerably higher.

      Just Bought the 32Go TF700 + dock (Wifi-only) at 599€ (about 700$)

    sooo seexxxxy! i like i like.

  • wow

    a great tablet for a reasonable price…
    now im so tempted to get this even though my original plan was to wait and see the asus nexus tablet or asus tf 700!!

  • J

    wow, amazing price, i’m glad i waited for this instead of buying the A510. I don’t think any other 1080p tablet compares at this price.

  • J

    how long do pre-orders usually last? i mean, can anyone ballpark when the A700 might actually hit stores?

    • Alex Davies

      If I remember, at the event we were told ‘late June’, but that was a month ago, and with the pre-order only now going live I would expect a realistic release date to now be mid to late July.

  • Miguel

    It’s either the rumoured google nexus tablet or this for my next tablet. I wish I can tell the future so I can decide which one to get already.
