ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is a tablet computer based on a 4-core processor, running the Android 4.0 operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The tablet is smaller in thickness than competitive products – the thickness of its case is only 8.3 mm, while the novelty is also the lightest in its class – 586 g, very little for a device in a durable metal case. The tablet is available in two colors: golden and amethyst.
The nVidia Tegra 3 processor and 1 GB DDR2 RAM provide high performance multitasking when browsing websites and HD videos, and in games. As demonstrated during the presentation, the Nenamark v2.2 benchmark shows only 21.2 fps on the first version of Transformer, and the new Transformer Prime gives a result of 49 fps. According to developers from ASUS, the gap in speed is observed in most applications.
The new ASUS tablet is equipped with a 10.1 ″ LED display with a Super IPS + matrix of high quality. The screen with a resolution of 1280 × 800 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The sound is answered by ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. Communication options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, and sensors include a gyroscope, accelerometer, light sensor, GPS and electronic compass.
The device is equipped with two cameras: the front at 1.2 Mpix, and the rear, with 8 Mpix, autofocus, aperture F / 2.4 and noise reduction function. At the same time, an option appeared in Android 4.0 that allows you to get directly to the photo or video application from the lock screen.
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is available with 32 or 64 GB of internal memory. Among the available interfaces are a 3.5 mm audio jack, a micro-HDMI port and a memory card slot (Micro SD). The docking station, in addition to a keyboard with a touchpad, is equipped with a USB port and an SD card slot.
The battery life of the new items is up to 12 hours, and the docking station increases it to 18 hours. Pre-installed software includes the Polaris Office office suite, which allows you to work with Word, Exce, PowerPoint files and the SuperNote note-taking application.
