While Samsung dropped the “Prime” name from the Galaxy Nexus, ASUS seems to have picked it up for its next Transformer tablet. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime (formerly known as Transformer 2) has been quite the buzzword lately, and it was briefly talked about at the AsiaD event yesterday. It turns out that ASUS also launched a teaser page for the tablet as well, showing off parts of the tablet and its detachable keyboard.
The tablet is going to be officially unveiled on November 9th, but so far we know that it’s going to be an 8.3mm thin tablet with a 10″ display, NVIDIA’s quad-core Kal-el SoC, USB and mini-HDMI ports, and a very nice, shiny back. The teaser page doesn’t offer anything new except for the message: “With the all new Eee Pad Transformer Prime, we are setting a benchmark for what tablets should be. Stay tuned!” So that gives the tablet a lot to live up to. Let’s hope it does.
