Asus Transformer Pad 300 spotted in the wild


Look at what we have here: an engineering unit of the recently announced lower-end Transformer Pad 300. Unfortunately we didn’t have a lot of time to manhandle the device and run tests on it, so most of this post is going to be centered solely on its physical appearance. Overall, it’s pretty nice to hold, even though it utilizes a body made out of plastic unlike the Transformer Prime.

The device that we saw was running Android 4.0 ICS, and was pretty responsive for the most part.

And though the device is mainly made out of plastic, the build quality is pretty good.

The device also apparently comes with a SIM slot, so we’re assuming this thing will be able to do surf the airwaves via 3G as well as through WiFi. Still no word on pricing and availability unfortunately, so we still have to keep on waiting for the official announcement.
