Asus Transformer Infinity Tablet Review
Asus knocks it out of the park with the Infinity Tablet.
Apple iPad 3rd Gen
Device & Specs
From a hardware standpoint, the Asus Transformer Infinity _should} stack up favorably to the iPad, but it has its own idiosyncracies. Both have a camera, both have GPS, and both offer bluetooth connectivity. However, the Asus is built to slightly out-spec the iPad.
While they each have impressive screens, the iPad remains king with its higher DPI, and better color gamut.
The iPad also has the better battery, lasting quite a bit longer than the Asus Transformer Infinity does in almost every activity. Keep in mind that it also takes forever to charge, as well, though the Asus Transformer Infinity does not.
If you're looking for a tablet to do some heavy eBook reading, the iPad lasts a significant time longer than the Asus Transformer Infinity does.

For example, the first version of their maps app to replace Google's was comically bad. The kinks will get ironed out eventually.
