Keyboard

A frequent complaint amongst those gaming on a tablet – even hugely successful ones like the iPad – is the absence of a physical keyboard. Thus, the option of using a docking keyboard with all Asus Transformer Pad models makes the gaming experience a bit easier. The users have the luxury to get connected through the docking keyboard and enjoy unlimited gaming all day long.

Screen

This varies depending on the model you choose, but the more expensive Transformer Pads – like the Infinity, boast a screen size and image resolution that will have even Apple getting nervous :P. The all new stunning 10.1 inch of screen size is something amazing for the gamers.

Enabling Online Games

Bigger screen size and a powerful processor are the key factors in bringing good quality to the games. Many modern games utilize increasingly sophisticated and immersive graphics; meaning the quality of screen size and resolution very important to the overall experience.

Striking Attraction

The all new TF700 comes with a striking amethyst gray finish color. The metallic back with the silver color embossed on it gives a stunning look to the device. The tablet also comes in Champagne gold color. If you think colors will intrigue and will capture your interests apart from the gaming intentions, then TF700 can be the best pick for you.

Processor

The upgrades to the original Asus Transformer (the Prime and the Infinity) both feature quad core Nvidia processors which provide gamers with virtually unbeatable graphics and processing power, making them ideal for playing 3D games – whether it is online casino ones or any other type. This processor is available with all models of the Transformer Pad now, including the budget price 300 model. Infact, this is the only product to boast a 1.7 GHz CPU and has the capability to support the PS3 and Xbox controllers.

HDMI Port

The Micro HDMI port of TF700 and some of its other Asus versions helps the users to connect the device to monitors or big screens. It helps them to play the games and enjoy a unique experience. You can get them connected through the wired PS3 or Xbox controllers. USB compatible games can also be played. It even supports gaming through dongle devices. So, what more is awaited and it’s time for the gamers to jump into action!!!

Games

This has been a key area where all Android devices have always been lagged behind by Apple, but more of the popular iOS games than ever are now available for Android as well. In addition, really good games are starting to be designed for Android devices like the Infinity in particular, such as Zen Pinball THD.

Google store is stuffed with brand new games that are nascent when compared with the popularity of its Apple counterpart. However, the Android games are all set to give a tough challenge to the Apple games.

The transformer pads come with amazingly sharp and clear images even on big screens when connected. It is the perfect device for the full time gamers and the money you spend on this device is rightly justified.
