Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the first tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The 10 inch tablet went on sale recently, but sold out rather quickly.

Now retailer Best Buy has more units in stock and available for $499.99. The company says units usually ship within a day. The tablets are not currently available in stores.

The Transformer Prime has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It has a 1.2MP front-facing camera and a high quality 8MP rear-facing camera.

Asus is initially shipping the Transformer Prime with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but the company plans to offer a free Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software update early next year.

What gives the Transformer Prime its name is the fact that you can transform the tablet into a sort of Android-powered laptop computer by attaching an optional $150 keyboard docking station. The dock has a QWERTY keyboard, a touchpad, and a separate battery which you can use to charge the tablet and extend your overall battery life.

    1. i did want it, was on preorder for 4 weeks at best buy, got backordered twice, i no longer want a tf201 prime, other quad core tablets will come in the next 2 months including the ipad3.

  1. I was able to order one this morning, says to expect it 12/27. It has not shipped yet and until I get confirmation that it has I don’t believe it. Im crossing my fingers.
