Well the day has arrived and the most awaited and first Android Tablet powered with the most powerful Tegra 3 Kal-El processor has been officially released today by Asus. Despite rumors around, about the delay of the launch as the company is working to land the Prime with ICS, Asus finally drops the Tablet on the said date with Android 3.2 Honeycomb. But not to worry as the first Tegra 3 powered tablet is upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as it is available.
Starting with the specification of the Asus Transformer Prime then it has some awesome, power packed hardware configuration with it. Other then 1.3 GHz Quad Core Tegra 3 processor with 12 cores GPU the device is packed with 1 GB RAM, which makes it super fast. Looking at the display then the Tablet sport 10.1-inch SuperIPS + display with Gorilla Glass. This display is much better and brighter than its predecessor Asus EEE Pad Transformer.
The body also has some special features including Hydro-oleophobic coating. The coating is supposed to make the screen and the back side of the Asu EEE Pad Prime Smudge proof, so that you don’t have to worry about the prints of your finger on the screen. This sounds great.
The common part is keyboard dock. But of course changes have been made with the thickness. The new keyboard dock which packs an internal battery and USB port is now thinner than the previous dock. This change is made to match the 8.33 mm thin Asus Transformer Prime. The keyboard dock adds 6 hours of battery life when attached with the Prime. Without dock the Transformer Prime can last upto 12 hours and with dock it has battery life of 18 hours.

Well the Availability details have not been revealed by Asus yet but as far the price is concerned the Asus EEE Pad Prime will be available with the price tag of $499 for 32GB Model and $599 for 64GB. The keyboard dock can be bought by paying $149 more.
