ASUS revealed its follow-up to the popular Transformer Prime TF201 tablet at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week. Dubbed the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF700T, this multi-use tablet works with the same accessories–particularly the dock–as its predecessor while sporting an upgraded display and better hardware.
The Android tablet has a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass Super IPS+ display at a stunning 1920 x 1200 resolution and a 178 degree ultra-wide viewing angle. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex A9 NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and a 12-core GeForce GPU. The Transformer Prime TF700T also includes an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. This storage is supplemented by 8GB of ASUS Web Storage2 and a microSD card reader. The usual ports and connectivity can also be found.
The latest version of the Transformer Prime isn’t revolutionary, but it’s a great upgrade over the previous iteration. The tablet will go on sale in the second quarter of 2012 for $599 and $699, depending on how much internal memory you want.
