I was under the impression that the TF300 is going to be the low end device of their new tablet lineup. Hopefully, it does better than the Prime at launch (as in no Wi-Fi issues, glitchy GPS, etc) . I'm more interested in the Pad Infinity, but only if Asus solves the software problems on the TF101 first. Otherwise, I can't say I'm too confident in their firmware with ICS.

I would also doubt highly that the original dock will work with any of these, but I suppose you never know -- they might be nice to us (yeah, right!).

TF300
You mention software issues with the TF101. Could you elaborate as I don't think I have any but may have missed them.

Some people are experiencing random reboots and other stability issues after upgrading to ICS.

Im quite sure they said the new devices will NOT be compatible with previous docks, and will have their own docks.
But if it will be compatible with any previous dock - it will be the TF201's. TF101 is too old, and I do believe they have stopped production of the dock as well (at least, a lot of stores here in sweden has stopped selling them and wont receive any new shipment)

And unless you root right after getting the TF101, the ICS update will be force fed to you and then all these issues of rebooting, freezing and apps force closing will ensue.

I'd wait for 300, may be the Wifi/GPS issues they had with prime will be fixed and she will be root and overclock friendly tab .

From the leaks to the media, the 300 looks to be a 201 clone with plastic case, slower soc but longer battery life. After seeing excellent performance of the fully functioning gps dongle on the prime, I have high expectations on the performance of the 300.

Hmm.. should Asus call this the Spartan 300, meager and mean?

Damn it. New phone comes first now(EVO 4G LTE).

I really dont have a problem waiting though. Very curious to see how win8 tablets pan out in the next 10 or so months.

After seeing the new intel ultrabook concept. Very interested.

Yes, waiting to see how Win8 tablets pan out. Android office suites just don't cut it.

That does look nice..
I am in the same boat..
New phone on the cards..thinking of the HTC one..
Then am giving the tranny to the parents for thier trip once they arrive from Australia up here to China..thus leaves me in a bind..
Can't go iPad, prime just isn't enough of a step upwards for me at this stage..the 300 looks interesting..but the 700 if it actually does as it is billed to would be enough to keep me happy for 5-12 months..
O what to do...

sent from yet another MikG HTC Evo

I'm not rooted and still running 3.2.1; I just force stopped DMClient. Even before that, it took weeks before my tablet even noticed the update (I had to manually apply the last few updates before ICS). Luckily, I happened to notice as it was downloading, went into settings... Bud, nipped.

Speaking of which...a belated happy 4/20.

EDIT: Should probably have mentioned that I'm fine with my TF for now, which I haven't yet had for a year. It would take a pretty big leap before I'd consider it-- either in tech, or the TF from a high enough distance.
