Tegra 3 quad-core powered ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime gets official in US, price starts at $499

The long awaited tablet from ASUS, the Transformer Prime has officially announced, which is the first tablet till date embedding a quad-core processor. With the equipped Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor, this tablet this will become the most powerful consumer tablet.

The gaming experience on it will not be like you have ever had before, and performance will surely be improved all while still providing good 12 hours of battery backup.

We have already seen Prime and its keyboard in some leaks happened in the recent past. Today, company has finally made Prime officially announced, although we were already aware of the device. Basically since when we seen the Transformer Prime landing page on the site last month.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime sports a glossy large 10.1-inches Super IPS+ display, supporting 1280 x 800 resolution with scratch resistant Gorilla Glass. There is a 1GB of RAM in the device and comes in the options of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. It also supports micro-SD and micro-HDMI, also offers front 1.2 megapixel as well as rear 8-megapixel cameras.

The Transformer Prime has an extremely thin design, which is just 8.3mm thin and weighs just 586 grams. It is actually very thin in size, in-fact more than the present champion in the market Galaxy Tab 10. Also the company boasts of its 12 hours of battery backup, which is simply great.

It is sad that the Prime does not run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as we expected and includes Honeycomb 3.2. The device comes in two different variants which costs $499 (Rs. 24,941)for the 32GB model and $599 for the 64GB (Rs. 29,932).

We hope the Asus tablet will soon land in India and other parts of the globe. The device seems to to great in the market as it has the most powerful processor and lightest design with marvelous looks. What else would you expect from a tablet?
