ASUS, as a technology manufacturer how do you follow up such a ground breaking gadget as the Transformer Prime ? You produce a smaller lighter and all-round cuter version of course. The first sightings are speculated to have happened at last month’s CES, with private back room demonstrations given to a select few by ASUS CEO Jerry Shen. Now Taiwanese website NCCC have apparently managed to get some pictures of the new Transformer. Initial impressions seem to suggest this is a 7″ version of the legendary Prime.
While many of the Technorati were distracted by the Apple v Samsung brew ha-ha ASUS managed to sneak up on them all and frankly put both of the headline grabbers to shame. The ASUS Transformer Prime not only captured everyone’s imagination with its catchy name but it also brought with it a number of firsts. By far the most powerful tablet on the market with its NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core CPU and with useability off the charts thanks to its snap on keyboard with integrated battery the Prime is now the new standard in Android tablets and now Prime is getting a little brother.
