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 had been delayed after weeks of pre-orders selling out. Apparently someone from Phandroid received word that an online retailer was canceling orders due to hardware and WiFi problems and the Prime would be delayed until next year and after the holiday season. We are happy to report this is not the case.
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.
hands on time with the Transformer Prime and really like the tablet. I am sure we aren't the only ones looking forward to the tablet hitting the market. A video has surfaced on Facebook that shows off a new accessory for the Transformer Prime that is really interesting. The accessory is the Transformer Prime Sleeve.
just learned that for those of you north of the border getting snowed on up in Canada BestBuy.ca is reporting the ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core beast will be available December 5th, and is already taking orders.
ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core tablet vs the iPad 2. Now when comparing devices there is tons to talk about but we'll be keeping this short and focusing on a few benchmarks. These were some of the best tests available to test both devices. With different platforms, hardware, and operating systems this can only be so accurate -- but we figured you'd like to take a look so here's the results.
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.
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.
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.
Eee Pad Transformer Prime, instead giving us a nebulous "December" time frame. But if computer retailer extraordinaire Newegg is to be believed, the quad-core tablet will be landing on the 8th, just a week and a half from now. You can already pre-order the Transformer Prime on that website and others.
