After a long time awaited, the most powerful tablet on the market is now available for pre-order on Amazon. ASUS Transformer Prime was introduced nearly 2 months ago and it has been much anticipated as this is the first Android tablet powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU.
You can pre-order the Transformer Prime right now on Amazon. There are 2 versions for you to choose, the 32GB model will cost you $499 whereas the price of the 64GB model is $100 more expensive. There are also 2 color variations including Amethyst Gray and Champagne, I prefer the gray color as it looks more elegant. I used the original Asus Transformer before and it is really a great bargain for that price, so I can ensure that the new Transformer Prime won’t disappoint us.
There is nothing to complain about the device. It is always on top of all devices’ benchmark tests with amazing scores. This is the first mobile device that could reach the score 12,872, which is nearly twice as high as the score of the original Transformer. There is only a minor issue if you bought dock for the old Transformer. ASUS said that the original dock would work with the Prime but unfortunately they can’t hold the announcement. That means your old dock won’t fit the new Transformer Prime and you will have to buy their new dock.
We also get good news if you want to buy the beast tablet. People were worried that the device will ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS and they could have to wait a few months to experience the newest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, the upgrade will come very soon, probably right after you get hands-on the device. Nvidia, the producer of the Tegra 3 quad-core processor, released a video demonstrating the tablet running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and we can believe it will get official this December. Check out the video below, the tablet’s performance appears to be very amazing with lightning-fast apps, smooth HD video playback and responsive gaming with special effects.
Do you love this tablet? Will you buy it or other cheaper tablets like Amazon Kindle Fire or Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet?
