Asus Transformer Prime with Quad-core Tegra 3 and 10.1″ Super IPS+ display announced


Asus officially announced earlier today the Eee Pad Transformer Prime as the worlds first 10.1″ Android tablet with NVIDIA’s Quad-core Tegra 3 (Kal-El) chipset.

The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is ultra-thin at 8.3mm and lightweight at 586g (1.29lbs) while featuring a stylish metallic swirl design with class leading enhancements including ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, an HD 8MP rear auto-focus camera with LED flash and battery life rated for up to 18 hours (yes you read it right eighteen hours) when combined with the optional mobile dock.

The quad-core CPU, 12-core GeForce® GPU and vSMP technology, the Transformer Prime delivers an incredible user experience featuring smooth multi-tasking capabilities, lightning fast app loading, a rich and fluid web experience, full 1080p HD video for both media playback or recording and incredible gaming performance.

Despite the fact that it doesn’t come out of the box with the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is not a obstacol in purchasing it because an upgrade will follow soon after its launch, according to Asus the upgrade might occur before year’s end.

Asus Transformer Prime will hit shelves in December on a pricing ranging from $499 (32GB) to $599 (64GB), with the optional mobile dock accessory priced at $149.
