It looks like a new Transformer Pad tablet is on its way from ASUS. The Transformer Pad TF502T has appeared on the manufacturer’s Taiwanese website, suggesting an official announcement could be made very soon, followed by a market launch. The device seems to be a rehash of the Transformer Pad TF600T that was launched last year and ran on Windows RT, with the only difference being the operating system it now runs.
The hardware seems to have been unchanged: there’s a Super IPS display of 1366×768 resolution, amd ASUS says it gives the tablet impressive viewing angles and screen brightness, a Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear and front cameras, 32GB and 64GB storage options and a microSD slot, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth V4.0 and NFC connectivity, stereo speakers with ASUS’ SonicMaster technology, and battery life of up to 16 hours (with an optional keyboard dock.) The tablet runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is rather old at the moment, though it’s possible it will run on Android 4.3 or 4.4 when it becomes available for purchase.
There’s no word on the TF502T’s price, though that detail (along with availability info) should be revealed at the Mobile World Congress in February.
