Asus has listened to the complaints, especially the problem of GPS. For it, tablet Transformer represented more than just an upgrade to the prime. Although support held relatively little of the Android OS, but Asus still manages to perform the upgrade.
Design of Asus Transformer Pad Infinity
Asus Transformer Pad TF700 Infinity may have a design similar to the previous version. It’s just a different thickness sizes. This device feels solid as wrapped with aluminum unibody design. Along the left and right edges are slightly tapered which gives the tablet is like a wedge. The back is aluminum but there is no thin line made of plastic. The possibility of this is done to address the problem of the GPS signal. That thought is that by including a GPS radio in plastic instead of metal, possibly a GPS signal will more easily enter and exit the tablet. This is done because his predecessor had difficulty in connecting to the GPS satellites such as aluminum metal.
Some of the ports and buttons also have changed places, such as power and volume buttons are on the top edge. Even the power button is pressed TF700 easier, it only took a moment to suppress it. While micro HDMI, microSD slot and a headphone jack located on the left side. TF700 keyboard dock is compatible with the TF201, but not to dock Asus Transformer Pad TF300.

TF700 will be available in two colors, namely Amethyst Gray and Champagne Gold. With the TF700 Amethyst Gray Metallic will look fine with the Asus logo that arises in the middle. While Gold Champagne, will look more festive as desired.
