Asus Transformer Prime to feature quad-core processor

It is slated to run on Ice Cream Sandwich from year end

By CBR Staff Writer

Asus is to launch its second generation Transformer tablet, the Transformer Prime, in December.

It will be the world’s first media tablet to feature a quad-core processor. It comes with an 8.33mm-thick body, a 1280×800 display, an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of shooting 1080p video, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a microSD slot. It weighs 0.59 kg and has 12 hours of battery life.

The Transformer Prime will run Android 3.2 when it ships in December, with an upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) promised for the end of the year.

According to Nvidia blogger Will Park, Google has done a great job on ICS. Park adds, "Thanks to Google’s developer support, Nvidia’s experienced software team was able to work with ASUS to quickly bring up ICS on the Transformer Prime."

Among other features is the docking station sporting a full-size QWERTY keyboard, a multi-touch touchpad, two USB 2.0 ports, and a 4-in-1 SD card reader.
