Asus Transformer Prime upgrade in Q2 - the TF700T
The following is an extract from PCMag in the US and confirms my previous note about an upgrade coming.
The Transformer Prime TF700T will bring a few key upgrades to Asus’s flagship line of tablets.
Most impressive is the 10.1-inch, 1,920-by-1,200-pixel (1080p) display. This new Super IPS+ display will be covered with Gorilla Glass and features the highest resolution we’ve seen on a 10-inch tablet yet. [Ampers: This is sorely needed as some of my videos left a little to be desired on the previous model]
The TF700T will also up the resolution on the front-facing camera from 1.2 megapixels to 2.0 megapixels, allowing for HD video chats on the tablet.
The internal specs will remain the same, with a powerful 1.2GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor and up to 64GB of storage. Asus has also worked out a new back panel design that should enhance Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS performance.
The tablet will run Andoid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The TF700T will retail for $599 to $699 (depending upon your configuration), It will be available in North America starting in the second quarter of 2012. [Ampers: I hope Asus have learned the error of disappointing the UK Market and will offer them here simultaneously]
