Asus Transformer Pad TF103 have been given a July 9 (June 22 in the US), 2014 release date by a Dutch retailer that couldn’t be bothered with honouring Asus embargo policy. Although it did once the “leak” was discovered by Asus.
The good news is that it will sell for only €279 in Europe with keyboard, and I imagine the price will be approximately the same in US dollars.
See it as a way of Google Android detachable tablets competing against cheap Google Chromebooks.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF103 was confirmed by Asus two months ago even if they haven’t unveiled it yet. However, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103 specs were discovered in April already.
But in short the main specs for Asus Transformer Pad TF103C-1B048A are a 1.8GHz Intel Atom Bay Trail Z3745 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch IPS display, 1280 x 800 resolution, 16GB storage, Android 4.4, a VGA front camera and a 2MP camera in the back. And there’s a QWERTY keyboard dock included in the price.
The tablet detaches from the keyboard dock by pushing the center button on the keyboard that you can see in the picture above. Color options on keyboard and tablet are either dark grey or white.
