Quad-Core Tegra 3 Transformer Prime Shipping This December for $499

Authored by: Steven Blum — Nov 9, 2011

 

Transformer Prime details have been leaked via official channels and, damn, this tablet is looking quite impressive! We're talking about the first quad-core Tegra 3 tablet that's just 8.3mm-thick, has a 12-hour battery and will soon be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Here are the rest of the specs in convenient list form (read 'em and weep!)

  • Tegra 3 SoC processor
  • 10.1-inch display
  • 178-degree viewing angle
  • 1280x800p
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich (by the end of the year, if not sooner)
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8MP camera round the back, 1.2MP camera up front
  • Mini-HDMI output
  • MicroSD slot
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Gyroscope
  • GPS
  • SonicMaster Audio

The tablet will be available as a 32GB model for $499 and a beefier 64GB model for $599. The beautiful and slim keyboard dock will set you back $149, making the full package a bit pricey, but well worth it in my humble opinion. Without the dock, the tablet is actually thinner (at 8.3mm) than the iPad 2 or Galaxy Tab 10.1. Are you sold yet?
