    Till Apple's 2048x1536 pixel Retina Display materializes with the iPad 3, ASUS can stake claim to having a 10-inch tablet with the highest pixel-density on its display. The new Transformer Pad Infinity (formerly known as Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF700T in its CES exhibition), packs a 1920x1200 Super IPS+ display with a capacitive touchscreen. The tablet is convertible to a netbook by attaching a base dock that gives it a keyboard and trackpad. It is driven by NVIDIA Tegra3 4+1 core processor clocked at 1.60 GHz, with a customized version of Google's Android OS.

    Yes! At last we are seeing higher resolutions and higher pixel densities. Let's hope this migrates very quickly to x86 laptop/desktop screens. (and not just tablet toys)

    No mention that the big ugly bar of plastic covering the front camera is all thanks to a massive design flaw asus made with the TF-201 I wonder if they smartened up and discontinued using pogo pins for the antennas while they were at it... Not surprised about the name change either.

    I was excited till I saw the bezel. So is it actually a 8" screen? Or a 10.1 and it is a foot long?

    I would love to hold one of these in my hands. I'm all for high res and perfer it, but I'm not sure how readable text will be on a 10inch display at 1200p.

    when you see a tablet is having higher res than your pc screen, you know you are falling behind... :cry:

    Not really. PC Monitors are kind of in limbo and have been sitting on 1920x1080 for a couple years now. There are 2560x1600 or 2560x1440 offerings, but they cost a fortune.

    Why the hell have PC monitors moved from 16:10 to 16:9 whereas these Android tablets are going to 16:10 (eg. 1280x800 and 1920x1200)!? :wtf:

    I sure wish 1920x1200 monitors were still being made. Shame we are supposed to get better with technology over time but have regressed to 1920x1080 monitors instead. :shadedshu

    Change the text dpi settings. What's the problem?

    I wouldn't mind a screen with that high a res but it would need to be more than a plain old TN Panel while capable for gaming use. :shadedshu

    While 120Hz would be sweet; I'd settle for 60Hz for the right price (if only due to the GPU power needed to drive such a display otherwise).

    Coming back on topic, these new screens (10.1" Display area or screen size including Bezel :confused: ) are promising for future screen tech elsewhere :cool:
