ASUS Unveils the First Quad Core Tablet: Transformer Prime

Asus has been trying very hard to shine in the Tablet PC market, but they never really got the chance. Either their products were badly advertised or they weren’t advertised at all. However, they’re planning to make a comeback with their newly revealed tablet PC, the evolution of the Asus Transformer and it’s apparently called Transformer Prime. Hope the decepticons don’t destroy Asus’s headquarter for having Prime.

This isn’t an official announcement, but rather a sneak preview of the product given by the chairman of Asus, Jonney Shih at the Asia D conference earlier today. Why is this a big deal? Well, it runs on the latest and first of it’s kind Tegra 3 quad core processor from Nvidia and will most likely come with the recently announced Ice Cream Sandwich. We don’t have the complete specifications of this tablet, but we do know that it’s going to be extremely thin at just 8.9mm and have a 10.1 inch screen. That’s everything that Mr. Shih gave the world. But, all will be made clear when it’ll be official announced on November 9.

In pictures, the Transformer Prime looks really really awesome, with an all aluminum body and that detachable keyboard it comes with. The Transformer 1 was somewhat of a success, because of its specs and the design. From what I’ve heard, the Prime might be a bigger success and will definitely compete with every other tablet in the market and probably win too.

Mr. Shih also spoke a little about the amazing Asus Padfone, the phone and tablet concept they showcased few months ago and acknowledged that it might see daylight in early 2012. That’s two new products coming from Asus’s stable. For now, watch the teaser trailer of the Transformer Prime.

The Tegra 3 is a very powerful processor, has amazing graphics and a very interesting 5th core that helps in saving battery life. Will we be seeing more tablets coming with the Tegra 3? What do you think? Transformer Prime or iPad 2?
