Not long ago we’ve talked at length about the advantages of the Asus Transformer Infinity 700 over the Transformer Prime and, in case you’re interested in how the 700-series fares against the Transformer Pad 300, we have that covered as well.
Nevertheless, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 getting closer to its launch, it’s high time for us to place it next to the Infinity 700 and see which one would be a better pick. Truthfully, at this time there are still some unknown facts about both tablets and their exact release dates still eludes us, but it’s always good to know what you can expect from a gadget ahead of time.
Asus Transformer Infinity 700 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
As you may remember, the Galaxy Note 10.1 has gone through a few changes in terms of specs as well as in looks. The tablet was not too promising when it was first revealed earlier this year, but things are looking much better in Samsung’s camp right now so we’ll let the numbers talk.

It’s quite an interesting match-up, seeing the Exynos chip going against the Tegra 3 once more, but overall there are quite a lot of differences between the two tablets including the huge gap between the quality of the screens. Nevertheless, in this particular case there’s one factor that plays a very important role, and that’s the price.
The 64 GB Wi-Fi Asus Transformer Infinity 700 is expected to hit the market at the price of $785, whereas the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is currently unknown.
There are however other factors you need to reconsider, such as the fact that the Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with an incorporated stylus pen and that the Infinity 700 embraces the whole transformer concept, giving you the option of using the tablet as a notebook, so we hope that the comparison above will make it easier for you to choose one of them once they hit the market.
Both tablets are expected to be available for purchase this summer, unfortunately no exact dates are known at this point.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more about both the specs, price tags and release dates of these two tablets. Stay tuned and let us know which one would be a better choice for you.
