At the AsiaD: All Things Digital event in Hong Kong few weeks ago, ASUS chairman Johnny Shih showcased the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime which claims to be the world’s first tablet to incorporate NVIDIA Tegra quad-core mobile processor. Well, it looks like the specifications of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime are officially out.
Comes in Amethyst Gray and Champagne Gold, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime, with metallic spun finish design made of aluminium, is incredibly slim at just 8.3mm thin and weighs a mere 586g. It features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor that can deliver superb experience for tablet-based multitasking, web browsing, full high definition video playback and gaming. On top of that, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime also sports a bright 10.1-inch Super IPS+ screen with LED backlight and Corning Gorilla glass for protection.
On the front is a 1.2-megapixel camera for video conferencing while the 8-megapixel camera at the rear comes with auto-focus and LED flash for taking brilliant pictures and full 1080p HD video. The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is also powered by ASUS exclusive SonicMaster technology for impressive audio performance. And is available in 32GB and 64GB flavours, along with a micro SD card slot, 3.5mm combo audio jack and micro HDMI port. It boasts a battery life of up to 12 hours and when combined with the mobile dock, it can last up to 18 hours. Unfortunately, no details on the pricing and availability at press time.
