When, last September, ASUS has announced the availability and prices in Italy accessories for the tablet ZenPad, not all were happy. The Taiwanese company has decided not to bring to our market the full range of accessories, but only a few and only for certain models. For example, while the ZenPad 8 can count on all keyboards and docking stations made (Cover Audio, Power Case, Zen homes and so on), the ZenPad 10 is entitled only to the Zen Clutch and ASUS TriCover. In short, the larger model, the one that probably would help users in productivity outside the home, is accompanied only by enclosures and no keyboard. Unthinkable.
In fact, the decision was clear ASUS already a few months before the official announcement, editing images (still visible today) dell’ASUS ZenPad 10 (Z300CG) on the Italian site. Let me explain: ASUS Italy has used the same images on the US site, but for us Italians decided to remove the keyboard, or better to cancel it. For us, the ASUS ZenPad 10 is not supplied to the keyboard.
But something is changing: Mediaworld has to list one ZenPad 10 3G (Z300CG) with Audio Dock bundled at a price of EUR 239.99. It is not a mistake, nor can one speak of an imported product apparently ASUS Italy has decided to satisfy the demands of users, who will appreciate.
ASUS ZenPad 10 has an IPS display with a diagonal of 10.1 inch HD (1280 x 800 pixels), x3-C3230 Atom 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, expandable with a microSD card slot up to 128. On board The usual form 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G, GPS, a micro-USB port and the usual audio jacks in addition to the expansion slot hidden under a flap. E ‘it equipped with Android 5.0 with Lollipop Zen UI and a 4890 mAh battery for nearly 9 hours of battery life.
The news (in Italian) is therefore the Audio Dock, even if the store calls generically “keyboard with built-in speakers.” It ‘a keyboard dock with two built-in speakers, not to be confused with the Audio Cover typical of ZenPad 8 and dedicated to digital entertainment.
