Asus introduced Transformer Pad Infinity tablet at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, in February.
Infinity might look familiar to the tablet lovers as it is essentially an upgraded version of the Transformer Prime TF700T that was unveiled at the CES 2012.
The Taiwanese company had already shattered the seeming invincibility of Apple's iPad with the launch of Transformer Prime recently.

Tablet experts believe that Infinity can prove a threat even to the highly anticipated iPad 3.
