The Asus Eee Pad Transformer burst unto the tablet scene earlier this year as a reasonably priced android powered tablet that offered the versatility of a netbook. The response from customers was very positive as I explained in the aricle – ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is a winner. The transformer was indeed a winner and went on to sell like crazy. ASUS has revealed that there is a successor to the Transformer on the way, the Transformer “Prime” and has set up a teaser page and release a teaser video ahead of it’s revelation on November 9th.
With the Android tablet market flooded with myriad of choices the competition is fierce. Google recently demoed Android 4.0 and revealed the first phone that will run it – The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but what about a tablet? Ice Cream Sandwich was designed to get the phone and tablet pieces of android back together after Honeycomb split them apart. ASUS is aiming to not only be the first tablet to be released that runs Android 4.0 but it will also be and ultra thin, powered by the much hyped quad core “Kal-El” CPU that will up the ante as it relates to tablet performance, mix in the keyboard attachment and we might have the must have gadget of the Christmas season on our hands.
The teaser page on the ASUS website reads:
The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is coming. We bring you the next transformation in tablet technology, one that is better than its predecessor in every aspect.
Our latest offering is faster, stronger, slimmer, and of course, sexier. We strived to break free from the normal constraints of a device through constant innovation, and the result is the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the world’s first tablet to feature Project Kal-El, NVIDIA’s next-generation quad-core Tegra® mobile chip, giving birth to a new breed of high powered tablet devices. Armed with this technology, the Transformer Prime is blazing fast. In fact, we are setting a new industry standard for how fast a tablet should be. Multitasking and HD movies? Piece of cake.
With the all new Eee Pad Transformer Prime, we are setting a benchmark for what tablets should be. Stay tuned!
