Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the first product to ship with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The 10 inch Android tablet also has a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB to 64GB of storage — and customers can pick up an optional keyboard dock that transforms the device into an Android laptop and which nearly doubles the battery life.

Unfortunately the Transformer is a little scarce this holiday season. While Asus says it has started shipping the tablet to folks that have placed pre-orders, most retailers are currently out of stock.

But Asus is now saying that the company will have more inventory available for North American shoppers in January.

Of course, by then, the Transformer Prime may not be the only quad-core Android tablet available. A number of companies including Acer and Lenovo are expected to launch tablets with NVIDIA Tegra 3 chips early next year.

  1. I went to buy one and it’s nowhere to be found. Come January that money is gone because I hate pre-ordering anything.

  2. Would have been nice had it shipped in November and they could cash in on the holiday sales. As is, they’ll launch during a period where people typically scale back tech spending.

  3. But will any of the other offerings have a keyboard docking station?  I still think this is the future of both netbooks and tablets.
