The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet is designed for users looking for flexibility in their tablet. With a mobile docking station attached to its keyboard, the Transformer Prime can be both a touchscreen tablet and a notebook, and can provide up to 18 hours of battery life when in the docking station and up to 12 hours on its own. Powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3, the world's first mobile quad-core processor, this tablet is able to offer both high performance and low power consumption through the use of a fifth "companion core." At a thickness of 0.33 inches and weight of 1.29 pounds, this tablet is ultra-portable. An 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and back-illuminated CMOS sensor captures 1080p resolution allowing for high quality photos and videos, while a 1.2 megapixel front camera allows for video conferencing. Finally, equipped with the Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS, this tablet is also upgradable to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Features
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS
  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU
  • 32GB Storage and 1GB of RAM
  • 1280x800p Resolution
  • 178 Degree Viewing Angle

Beware, the link in the box(PC Richard & Son) is pointing to the original transformer, not the prime version!

It sucks it did an update and took me from Honeycomb where I could download e-mail attachments that let me go paperless, the update changed my machine over to Ice Cream or something and now the damn thing is useless to me except for playing games or listening to music, I am hauling papers to meetings now because it does not recognize pdf's or word docs, they are not supported!!!!!!!
