ASUS UK has announced that it'll be bringing its latest tablet, the 1080p-toting Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) to British shores from Aug. 31, giving Brits the chance to own what we described as the best Android tablet currently on the market. But the opportunity to own one of the coveted tablet/laptop combos won't come cheap -- the RRP is expected to sit at £599.99 (~$930) for the 64GB version with keyboard dock, and ASUS isn't saying whether it plans to release the cheaper 32GB model in the UK. That price point makes for a sizeable mark-up over what you'll pay in the U.S., where the 64GB Infinity sells for $599.

Nevertheless, it's more or less in line with the pricing of earlier Transformers, and we're sure UK consumers are (rightly or wrongly) accustomed to paying more for mobile tech in all its forms. For more on the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, be sure to check out our full review.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity headed to the UK on Aug. 31, £599.99 with dock


Before people complain about the price disparity, the US $599 price doesn't include the keyboard dock. Add that on and it's $748. When you account for VAT, the UK price is only the equivalent of $744. Add on the fact that UK law requires retailers to warranty products for 6 years (although the warranty is prorated to account for depreciation after 2 years), while a US 2-year warranty would cost an extra $55, and you have a pretty good deal
