ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the world’s first tablet featuring the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor and to be unveiled with Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which will be available through an over-the-air update on 12 January 2012.
- Eee Pad Transformer Prime + Docking station: SGD$899 (GST Included) [UP: SGD$1098]
- Eee Pad Transformer Prime (Tablet only): SGD$759 (GST Included) [UP: SGD$899]
- Docking station: SGD$199 (GST Included)
- I love how amazingly light (586g), slim (8.3mm), and extremely responsive the device is.
- Up to 12 hours of battery life, with 18 hours when coupled with the docking station.
- Super IPS+ screen with 600 nits of brightness – in comparison with the ~400 nits on the iPhone and iPad.
- 8 MP (f/2.4) rear camera + 1.3 MP front camera – coupled with ICS new camera features like panorama, the camera actually is useable.
- The sound (SonicMaster technology) is clear and loud, however the speakers are behind so you’ll still have to cup the speakers to hear the audio properly.
- The NVIDIA Tegra 3 comes with 4-core CPU + 12 core GPU + 1 extra CPU core for low-power processing. This essentially allows the battery life to last up to 12 hours.
- It is 3D capable. Plug in your Transformer Prime into a 3D capable monitor or TV and you can display your games in 3D (with those 3D glasses) while the games are playing in normal 3D (think 3D flattened to 2D) on your Transformer Prime.
- My verdict? This is the best buy EVER Android ICS tablet for now (yes, even better than Motorola XOOM 2).
