transformer prime firmware[CES 2012] Asus has dropped the bomb: there’s another Asus Transformer Prime coming, and it has a 1920×1200 HD display powered by a Super IPS+ LCD panel and protected by Gorilla Glass. With this new display, you will be able to watch 1080p movies (at 40Mbps+ bitrate) in their full glory – the iPad 2 1024×768 display resolution feels like a Nintendo Gamecube. This will undoubtedly send chills through the Tranformer Prime fans, but it’s clear that any Tablet enthusiast would agree that this extraordinary screen resolution is a fantastic addition to an already rising star. If you don’t know what the Asus Transformer Prime is about, read our complete Transformer Prime review.

From what we can tell, this model would come in addition to the existing 1280×720 Asus Transformer Prime, and the price difference is $100 for the 32GB version, which makes this a very palatable option in my opinion. The rest of the hardware is very similar of not identical, with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 32GB or 64GB of memory etc… but we’ve kept the best part for the end: the Transformer Prime TF70T will ship with Android 4.01! I have added the official specifications in the full post. Note: the photo above shows the 720p Transformer Prime that came out in late November. The TF70T should look like this.ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF70T
