Well the news is coming in thick and fast now! The US product page for the Transformer Prime went live just a few days ago, and we just announced yesterday that the device is available for pre-order. Now Asus have released the official source code and user manual for the new tablet – before any physical devices have even hit the shelves!
There’s no need to wait any longer. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is now available to pre-order from several online retailers in the USA and Canada. No word yet on the shipping date, but expect some time in early December.
Eeepc.it have discovered an awesome new cover for the Transformer Prime. This slick piece of work actually folds into various shapes, so you can stand the tablet in portrait or landscape mode, in a variety of different angles.
It’s available from Amazon.de for EUR 39.99 right now. We’re not sure exactly when it will ship (hopefully around the same date as the Transformer itself). This cover’s well worth considering, along with the optional keyboard dock to jazz up your purchase. One thing’s for sure – your EeePad Transformer Prime with this foldable Origami Cover will inspire envious glances from your friends and colleagues for months to come
