Google Nexus 7 vs. Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Tablet Comparison Smackdown
Here's a tablet comparison where the winner is always Asus. That's because Asus makes both the Nexus 7 tablet and the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. The Nexus 7 is Google's first tablet, and despite its low price tag, it's one of the better 7" Android tablets on the market. The Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is one of the top spec-d 10.1 tablets on the market. Both are brand new and are still hard to find in stores.
Two Major Differentiators: Size and Price
We've received quite a few requests for this particular comparison, despite how different the two tablets are. For those of you trying to decide between these two, first ask yourself how much you want to spend, and what size tablet is most useful.
Despite a snazzy design and good specs, the Nexus 7 is a bargain priced tablet that costs $199 for the 8 gig and $249 for the 16 gig. That's certainly great if you're on a tight budget. The Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is a high end 10.1" tablet with a price to match. It's $499 for the 32 gig model and $599 for the 64 gig.
Size: do you want a tablet that's easy to take anywhere and fits in a large pocket? Do you want to use it on the subway or pull it out of your pocket or small bag when waiting in line? The 7" Nexus 7 is for you. Or do you want a tablet with a display that's closer in size to a small laptop screen? Do you plan on reading lots of web pages without squinting or zooming? Do you plan on reading PDFs or working frequently with MS Office files? Then the 10.1" makes more sense.
