New iPad sales start March 16, but Android fans want to know how it stacks up to the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. Formerly known as the Transformer Prime TF700, the new Android 4.0 tablet features a high-definition screen like the new iPad. It's not quite as high-resolution as the iPad, but it's sharper than any other devices out there. Asus hasn't said when it would launch, but its predecessor only came out right at the end of 2011. The Transformer Prime TF201 was the first quad-core tablet, but was plagued by WiFi problems. It's still for sale at Best Buy and other retailers, and it's returnable if it can't connect to Wi-Fi, but the damage has been done. Maybe the TF700 can be a true test for the new iPad.
Besides having a great looking HD display, the TF700 has a companion keyboard that fits snugly to the bottom of the tablet. That's where the transformer part of the name comes from, but it also adds six hours of battery life to the already stout tablet. So both the new iPad and TF700 have good batteries and HD screens. Sounds like a tablet battle to us! Begin the slideshow to see how the rest of these two high-class tablets' features compare. Let us know if you plan on standing in line for a few hours to get your hands on the iPad.
