Uh-oh: Asus has just announced its latest 10.1-inch Android tablet, and it's a display resolution monster capable of taking on even Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
Cult of Android is reporting that Asus hit the Computex 2013 conference today with a monster of an Android tablet known as the Transformer Pad Infinity. Featuring the latest NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz with 72-core GeForce GPU, the 10.1-inch tablet will be most noteworthy for Apple fans because of its pixel-dense display.
With a resolution of 2560 x 1600, the Infinity tablet equals that of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display while also besting the fourth-generation iPad's 264 pixels per inch by just a hair with 299ppi.
The Asus Transformer tablet line has always been a pretty capable performer, which is probably why Google tapped the company to produce its popular Nexus 7 tablet. With a full-size SD card slot, keyboard dock, HDMI capable of 4K Ultra HD and full-size USB ports, the Infinity certainly looks to smoke the iPad on features, but it's still running Android, which has had a tough time competing in the tablet space against Apple.
Hold onto those credit cards, though: There's no word on pricing or availability for the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity as yet.
