Who wants an uber sleek and lightweight tablet that also packs a punch with that quad-core mobile processor from NVIDIA? I know I do! Apparently Gamestop either knows something we don’t or they’ve made a minor (big) mistake because they’ve just changed their release date information for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet from December 9th to November 28th. Yup, as in next Monday — I’m getting excited already.
Right about now you might also be asking yourself wait a minute, Gamestop sells Android tablets? Why yes they do and they started doing so late last month. Now most likely this is an error as it was previously listed as 12/9 but you never know these days. Along with the pre-order (available now) you get a free Bluetooth game controller and some bundled games making this worth a deal to order right now, even if it doesn’t ship until December as we originally thought.
While we wait for more official details and an actual release date from ASUS here is a quick Transformer Prime hands-on video from YouTube, as well as a video from NVIDIA showing the Prime running Android 4.0 ICS. I don’t know about you guys but I’m pretty excited about this next step for Android tablets. Being quad-core and still having exceptional battery life mixed in with some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich this will be one hard tablet for that other fruity brand to compete with. Stay tuned for more details.
Update: It appears to be moved back to December 9th — sadness. Carry on folks.
