The soon to be released and instantly popular ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core tablet has just hit the FCC, I’m getting excited just thinking about it. We’ve already seen it in the wild a few times and now its making a quick pit stop at the FCC before heading to the shelves — and our hands.

We were hoping to learn a few new juicy details from the filing bud sadly that isn’t the case although we know plenty already. The Transformer Prime tablet will be just 8.9mm thin while packing the extreme power of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Coming first with Android Honeycomb it will very quickly be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. First teased in a promo video by ASUS, then quickly followed with an official landing page to keep us all patiently waiting.

Most of the important details are hidden in secrecy in the filings, I was hoping to see some sort of HSPA+ or even LTE bands on board but they didn’t reveal anything of that nature sadly. First shown off by ASUS execs at AsiaD and said to be coming soon a recently leaked roadmap confirms the Transformer Prime will be officially announced November 9th. We should be seeing and hearing plenty about this awesome new flagship tablet from ASUS and NVIDIA in the coming days so be prepared for the power that is the Tegra 3, and stay tuned for more information.

Update: Thanks to wirelessgoodness we now have teardown pictures revealing the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, wireless capabilities and more all in the gallery below.
