The Asus Transformer Pad TF300T is an Android tablet computer with a quad-core processor, and a successor to Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The Transformer design includes an optional docking keyboard. The Asus Transformer Pad TF300T was released on the market in the U.S.[1] and Europe in May 2012.[2]


The Asus Transformer Pad TF300T is a tablet computer with a 10.1" IPS 10-finger multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1280x800. This display is not Super IPS+ contrary to the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The unit does not employ Gorilla Glass, and is therefore more susceptible to breakage.

The processor is an Nvidia Tegra 3 at 1.2 GHz upon initial release with Android 4.0.X ICS, but overclocked to 1.3 GHz upon updating to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean(latest firmware is Android 4.2.1). The Transformer Pad TF300T has 1 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, and an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi module.

At the front of the tablet there is a 1.2-megapixel camera for video conferencing. On the back is an 8-megapixel (5-element lens) BSI CMOS sensor with autofocus camera which can be used for capturing HD videos with 1080p resolution.

The TF300 was the first 'non-Nexus' device to receive Android 4.2 'Jelly Bean'.

Docking keyboard[edit]

The optional docking keyboard features full QWERTY keys, trackpad as well as an additional battery that increases overall battery life from 8.5 hours to 12.5 hours.

There are multiple reports of the screen cracking due to the amount of stress the hinges puts on the screen when opening and closing the unit.

Weight: 640g without the keyboard. The weight of the docking keyboard is 546g.

3G and LTE models[edit]

A 3G model supporting HSPA+, HSDPA and quad-band GSM has been released as the TF300TG.[3]

An LTE model supporting the above cellular standards as well as LTE has been released as the TF300TL.[4]

Custom ROM Development[edit]

CyanogenMod 11 or later, an unofficial updated version of Android (operating system) can be installed onto the TF300T tablet.[5] In addition, the TF300 continues to be supported by an active community of aftermarket operating system developers at XDA Developers several years after its initial release.[citation needed]
