ASUS has just revealed one of the hottest new Android products of 2011 – the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
This is the successor to Asus’ popular Android tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer. Asus is targeting a very specific market here, by offering a premium Android tablet with a detachable keyboard. However, unlike the combined iPad cases which can often include a keyboard, Asus has fully integrated the keyboard into the device.
Not only can the keyboard be clipped on for an elegant “netbook” style device – the aluminium chassis which houses the keyboard also contains an extended battery. This allows the Transformer Prime to reach a battery life of up to 16.5 hours. That’s far better than any mainstream offerings on the market today.
The Transformer Prime will also be the first tablet device to feature Google’s new Android release – version 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich”. This update sports a ton of new features, from face recognition to enhanced email & productivity apps. The all-new operating system is likely to be a major selling point for the Transformer.
There are plenty of other benefits to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. We’ll be posting about some of them in upcoming articles. Check out the Specifications page for more details, and be sure to subscribe to keep up to date with the latest Transformer Prime news!
