The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is up for Pre-Order
If you are tapped in to all the geekyness and tech hype that is surrounding mobile then you may have heard of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet. This amazing tablet combines the power of high end specs and a full sized keyboard to make it one of the best tablets available to date. While its plastic build generally left a bit more to be desired, everyone usually gets a second chance and it seems like Asus is taking full advantage of theirs. The Asus Transformer Prime made its way through the FCC earlier this month and has been making cameo’s all over the place even showing off its Ice Cream Sandwich OS at one point. Check out the video below of the Asus Prime running ICS below.
The Transformer Prime has been lurking around the rumor mill for awhile now and has just gone up for pre ordering. The new slate comes in two (four if you want to get technical) variations the 32GB version will run you about $500 bucks while the 64GB version clocks in at $600. You can pick this beast up in either gray or champagne colors. But is it worth it? You be the judge. The Asus Prime will ship with Android version 3.2 Honeycomb and have promised an Ice Cream Sandwich update in the very near future, which isn’t hard to believe seeing how it runs like a dream in the video above. The Prime measures in at 10.1 inches that is made of Corning’s Gorilla glass and sports Super IPS+ technologies that clock in at a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Sound good yet? It gets better! Internally the new Eee Pad Transformer Prime is a beast. It runs with the latest and greatest from NVIDIA, with a Tegra 3 1.3 GHz quad core processor that is backed by 1GB of RAM and a 12 Core GeForce GPU. It also has expandable microSD memory up to 32GB, type D HDMI connectivity, micro USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You can easily snap pictures with its CMOS back light 8 mega pixel camera or even record video in 1080p HD. The front facing camera clocks in at 1.2 mega pixels. The Eee Pad Transformer Prime weighs in at a mere 1.2 pound and claims battery life up to 12 hours or 18 with docking station. While I don’t believe in the term ‘iPad killer’ if any device was to have a chance it would be an amazing piece of technology like the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
The original Eee Pad was very popular amongst a small selection of end users. Can the Transformer Prime bring in new customers with its amazingly high end specs?
