This week the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet went up for pre-order. Now you can also place a pre-order for the optional keyboard dock.
The Transformer Prime is a 10 inch Android tablet and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. But it’s the tablet dock that helps set the Transformer apart from most of other Tegra 3 tablets that will hit the streets in the coming months.
You can snap the keyboard into the keyboard dock and use the tablet as if it were a laptop computer. The docking station also has an integrated touchpad, shortcuts for Android functions including the Home and search features, and a separate battery which can add an extra 6 hours of battery life to the Transformer Prime.
Asus launched the first generation Eee Pad Transformer earlier this year, but that model had a Tegra 2 processor and was thicker and heavier than the new model. The new Transformer Prime gets a new docking station which is also thinner than its predecessor — and it has at least one new feature: a subwoofer which will help provide better audio when the tablet is docked.
You can pre-order the Transformer Prime TF201 keyboard dock from Amazonor Best Buy for $149.99.
