Right on schedule, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is now official.
Just as weâ€™ve heard and reported before, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime rocks a quad-core Tegra 3 processor under its svelte 8.3mm tablet hood supported by 1GB of RAM. It also sports an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with an f/2.4 lens and LED flash at the back, a 1.2-megapixel cam on the front, and microSD card slot and miniHDMI port on the side. It comes preinstalled with Android Honeycomb 3.2 with an Ice Cream Sandwich update to follow.
For its display, the Prime features a 10.1-inch 1280×800 resolution Super IPS+ Gorilla Glass-protected LCD touchscreen. This provides better viewing angles (up to 178Â°) and enhanced brightness for use outdoors.
Battery life is rated to last up to 12 hours. And that’s on the Prime alone. Hooked up to the dock, you can reportedly squeeze out a total of 18 hours from this ‘droid tablet.
Speaking of the dock, the Prime’s keyboard dock comes with pretty much everything youâ€™d expect from a Transformer dock â€“ an SD card slot, USB 2.0 port, and a multi-touch touchpad.
Bundled with the dock and closed, you can actually mistake this for the Asus Zenbook.
Now, as for pricing and availability, the Transformer Prime will begin shipping globally in December. The 32GB Transformer Prime will cost $499 (around Php21.5K) while the 64GB variant a $100 pricier at $599 (around Php25.8K). The keyboard dock, meanwhile, is priced at $149 (around Php6.4K).
I’m not really a fan of ‘droid tablets, but this one isÂ definitelyÂ making me rethink my current disposition.
