ASUS unveiled its Tegra 3-powered Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet a few weeks ago and now it is available for pre-order at some North American retailers already. There’s a lot to be excited about with this keyboard-dockable tablet hybrid.
It runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, which is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich and packs in a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera. It boasts high performance and low power consumption, which is really going to be the key driving force to how many sales this device makes. It has to deliver on battery life.
It comes in your choice of amethyst gray or champagne gold with 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage. Other specs include a mini-HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, and a SD card reader. This 10.1 inch hybrid weighs just 1.3 pounds and is only 0.33″ thin.
