Transformer Prime

Android Community Weekly: December 11, 2011

We've finally finished a couple excellent reviews, have a better understanding of whats been holding up the Galaxy Nexus, and learned of some cool new accessories for your new (or older) device! The first review definitely worth taking a look at is of the ASUS Transformer Prime. Cory Gunther put it to the test through some rigorous benchmark tests and great video demonstrations. To date, it has performed better than any current Android tablet on the market. Next up, Michael Crider posted a review of the new Nitro HD by LG. It turned out to have quite a crisp IPS LCD display, but turned out to be a quite bland device in general.

ASUS Transformer Prime Review

Say hello to the next generation of Android tablets -- that would be quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 tablets to be exact. With 2011 dominated by the Tegra 2 we expect 2012 to be similar. Ahead of the pack comes ASUS with the worlds first quad-core slate, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Being similar to many other tablets around can the Prime boost ahead of the pack and make a name for itself, or will it just be another in the flood of Android tablets? With good looks, a fancy radial spun aluminum design and that ultra-powerful processor we think it will hold its own just fine. Read on below for all the details, video, and pictures you can handle.

ASUS Transformer Prime Official Hands-on

Who's ready for the Prime? The wait is almost over and today we'll be giving everyone a look at the first quad-core tablet ever -- the ASUS Transformer Prime. We've talked about it plenty but now it's here we finally get to enjoy that quad-core power thanks to the superchip NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor under the hood. It's been seen a few times in the wild and even running Android 4.0 ICS but today we have the actual retail product that you'll all be able to purchase soon. When I say soon I mean December 19th. Yup that is the official date, not the 8th. Head on down past the break for plenty of pictures, videos and more information on that release date.

Transformer Prime 1080p camera gets a look at Segways and fashion models

Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime is definitely at the top of the heap as far as Android tablets go right now, and not just because of its quad-core Tegra 3 processor. The 8MP 1080p camera is will also meet or beat just about any tablet out there, and the manufacturer aims to prove it with their latest YouTube video. Compare this with the impressive still images already released. They chose a fashion show in Sweden as their venue for the demonstration - I can't imagine why.

First Nvidia Tegra 3 game gets screenshots and video at Tegra Zone

Good news: Tegra 3-enabled games are starting to appear in Nvidia's Tegra Zone! Bad news: it's only a pinball-style game at the moment, and a demo at that. Worse news: there's actually no hardware on sale that can take advantage of it - the first Tegra 3 device, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime isn't due until December. But hey, look at that quad-core rendering action! "Glowball" will be available in the Android Market, and on some Tegra 3 devices it'll come pre-loaded.
