Asus Announces the Transformer Prime – The World’s First Tegra 3 Quad-core Tablet, Priced at $499

transformer prime1

It’s official. The Asus Transformer Prime has been announced as the world’s first Tegra 3 quad-core tablet running Android. As the follow-up to the ultra-popular Asus Transformer, this device will take us into the future of what will most certainly become the standard. Who would have thought that just months after NVIDIA introduced dual-core mobile processors that we would already be using PC-like quad-core beasts? I sure couldn’t have imagined it, but here we are.

So other than the quad-core processor, what else will you find in this “premium” tablet? A 10.1″ Super IPS+ display with 178 degree viewing angles (protected by Gorilla Glass), 1GB DDR2 RAM, an 8MP rear camera (1080p video and F2.4 aperture, back illuminated CMOS sensor), 1.3MP front camera for video chatting, 32GB or 64GB of storage, HDMI and micro USB ports, and a battery that will last you up to 12 hours.

The tablet itself is only 8.3mm thick, weighs just 1.29lbs, and will see prices of $499 (32GB) and $599 (64GB). There will be two color options available:  Amethyst Gray and Champagne Gold.

There will be a docking station similar to what we all enjoyed with the original Transformer priced at $149; this newest version will be much, much slimmer though. It will also take the battery life on the Prime from 12 hours up to 18 hours when docked.

As far as software goes, the Prime will ship with Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) and will be upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) shortly thereafter. We should know more on this situation in early December. In fact, Asus plans to show the device running ICS at their December launch event.

No release date has been announced at this time, but as we just said, they have a launch event planned for early December.

Press Release:

ASUS Announces the Eee Pad Transformer Prime

Featuring the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 Quad-Core Processor the Transformer Prime is designed to greatly enhance the mobile computing experience

Fremont, CA (November 8, 2011) — ASUS officially announces the world’s first tablet with the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor – the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is ultra-thin at 8.3mm (0.33”) and lightweight at 586g (1.29lbs) while featuring a stylish metallic swirl design with class leading enhancements including ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, an HD 8MP rear auto-focus camera with LED flash and battery life rated for up to 18 hours* when combined with the optional mobile dock. Pricing will range from $499** (32GB) to $599** (64GB), with the optional mobile dock accessory priced at $149**.

Incredibly Slim yet Incredibly Powerful

Featuring an ultra-slim form factor, the Transformer Prime is only 8.3mm (0.33”) thin and weighs in at a mere 586g (1.29lbs without dock).  This makes watching movies, surfing the web, playing games, taking photos, finishing up homework or video chatting with friends or family so easy and natural that you’ll wonder if the Transformer Prime was designed specifically with you in mind.  Its innovative metallic swirl design is made of aluminum for a secure yet extremely comfortable grip that comes in two gorgeous colors: Amethyst Gray and Champagne Gold.

The Transformer Prime is the world’s first tablet to feature NVIDIA’s next-generation quad-core Tegra® 3 processor.  With the quad-core CPU, 12-core GeForce® GPU and vSMP technology, the Transformer Prime delivers an optimum user experience featuring smooth multitasking capabilities, lightning fast app loading, a rich and fluid web experience, full 1080P HD video for realistic media playback or recording and of course, incredible gaming performance that allows you to experience games in an entirely new way.

Fantastic Battery Life 

While the Transformer Prime is extremely slim and light, ASUS did not forget about battery life.  Thanks to the advanced power management features of the Tegra® 3 processor and ASUS optimizations the Transformer Prime has a battery life of up to 12 hours*, but when combined with the mobile dock, it lasts up to an incredible 18 hours*, the longest battery life of any current tablet.  That’s enough battery life for a trans-ocean flight, all-night game session, viewing several movies on a long road trip or even video recording, editing, and then playing back your child’s school play all in 1080P HD clarity.

Unrivaled Visuals

The Eee Pad Transformer Prime boasts a wide 178° viewing angle IPS display, protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which features new ASUS technology to enhance the brightness of the screen for a better outdoor reading experience while still offering a remarkably vivid and brilliant viewing experience of photos, books, videos, movies and web pages indoors. Thanks to Multi-Touch technology, you can use your fingers to do everything from swiping through photos, surfing the web, playing the latest games, typing emails, instant messaging, reading books or magazines, and starting your favorite movie.

A 1.2MP front camera allows for instant photos or high-quality video conferencing with friends, family or coworkers while an 8MP rear camera with auto-focus and LED flash takes brilliant photos or video thanks to a large F2.4 aperture, back illuminated CMOS sensor, touch-to-focus depth of field and low-light noise reduction to provide the clearest and sharpest photos or even 1080P HD videos.

Advanced Audio

The Transformer Prime offers impressive audio capabilities in a tablet, powered by ASUS exclusive SonicMaster technology, renowned for crisp and acoustically accurate audio. It produces crystal clear sound with a wide sound stage, increased audio fidelity, and distinct vocal enhancements for an immersive audio experience with your favorite music track, video, or movie.

Unlimited Productivity

The Transformer Prime is offered with either 32GB or 64B flash storage options for quick, efficient and reliable access to your applications.  Both models feature a micro SD card slot, 3.5mm combo audio jack and micro HDMI port so sharing both what’s inside and on-screen is quick and easy. However, the function that gives the Transformer Prime its namesake is the mobile dock, which gives new meaning to the term versatility. This innovative and convenient design seamlessly provides the user with a keyboard and touchpad, along with limitless expandability options via the USB port and SD card slot.

ASUS will include several innovative applications like SuperNote that is fantastic for its ability to take, draw or record notes and Polaris® Office which is great for staying productive with the ability to read, edit or create Word, Excel and PowerPoint (MS Office 97-2007) compatible files.  Thousands of top rated applications and games are also available at Android Market that fully takes advantage of the Transformer Prime’s amazing features and power.

    This will be my first tablet also!

    Finally a tablet I want. Hope this comes to the UK soon!

    This article says that the tablet has a microUSB port (standard for all Android devices), but neither the slideshow from Asus, nor the press release, nor the photos show a microUSB port on the tablet itself. The keyboard dock has a full sized USB port. So, if I want to connect this thing to my computer or use the arduino peripherals SDK I need to buy the dock?

  • Anonymous

    : This is exactly the tablet we’ve all been waiting for! Give Sammy the news that they are going to have to step back up again big time. I’m sure we don’t have to worry about Moto AFTER this next XOOM 2 because Google will finally be making more judgement calls for them once the deal is finalized. Meaning Moto will automatically start doing this kind of thing first, and more often. I love ASUS and am really excited!

  • GCurry

    I have an Acer Iconia 10″ tablet, which I’m quite happy with, except for the microphone/voice recognition and Acer’s commitment to the tablet space.   For those reasons, I’m considering exchanging it for this one.  Asus is much more committed, it seems.   I just need to do my homework on mic input.

  • J Dub

    Was hoping for better battery life to the tune of 20+ hours with the dock.

    I thought the release was delayed because Google is going to work with Asus to put ICS in these things? Why does it say it’s coming with 3.2 Honeycomb?

      It is almost the same as the one on the original Transformer but a bit cloudier I think.  That should be easy enough to find so you could settle for that one.

    I’ve been harping on this for a while, but what I really wanna know is will the keyboard dock from the Transformer work on the Transformer Prime? It’d be nice to give people a break if they already have a dock.

      I don’t think it is the same as the profiles are different.

      It is supposed to be compatible, but it would probably look horrible together.  My main concern would be with how thin the TF Prime is, it might be a bit wobbly in the old dock.

    I have to say that Asus did a perfect job on the price point of this device. Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t the original 32Gb Transformer $499 at launch? If so we are getting Quad Core, thinner form factor and ICS for free practically.

    I also love how they are keeping the original transformer as a relevant device. Once that has ICS it will be a more amazing device with hardware acceleration and still affordable for the average consumer while you have the premium device for others.

    Pure genius Asus. I will be buying this device.

    I’m probably going to get a lot of flak for this but am I the only one that thinks this is kinda ridiculous?  Who the heck needs quad cores in a tablet when nothing (software wise) will be able to use it to its full extent?

    My bet is that by the time android or apps start actually utilizing muti-core processors, the asus prime will be old news and a couple generations old…. that’s also a jab at how quickly android hardware turns over… I mean how old is the original transformer and its already being replaced!

    • Anonymous

      Yes, you’ll get flak. If apple had released a quad-core tablet, BGR and all sorts of other places would cream so hard they’d drop dead from the excitement.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      This is the mentality that should have you still using a Palm. There is ALWAYS good logic in trudging forward, software and apps will catch up, especially if you force them and that makes it better for us in the end.

      BTW, your missing a huge benefit of these processors that is beyond speed… better battery and power management advances that make our batteries last longer is a huge almost bigger benefit and that only comes with pushing forward and advancing.

      So yes, it matters.

  • Blake Buchanan

    I’m disappointed only by the later release date. I think that the tablet makers in general have all really messed up by not getting enough hot items out before the holiday season.  This could have been the can’t miss Black Friday item this year. Now, I must wait.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MRXKXFO5F7NVWFJHNZFO7NEHVY Big R

    Does this have an SD card slot?  That will make a huge difference in the one that I purchase.  If it has the SD slot, I will get the 32GB version and the docking station.  Otherwise, I get the 64GB version with no dock.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      “Both models feature a micro SD card slot” but technically speaking, external memory on an SD card slot would not be as fast as internal mother board wired memory.

    • Raven

      The tablet has a Micro SD slot and the Dock has a Full SD slot.

      Actual MS Word? No. No such thing by MS as of yet. But as is said, there are several pay apps out there that can handle doc editing for MS docs on a tablet. Plus, there is also Google Docs and do it in the cloud.

    Just imagine this beast on 4G, playing games (Call Of Duty would be sick) OTA on a tab (while at work, of course) makes me have a nerdgasm. Don’t get me wrong, I think most of us that follow sites like this get wrapped up in things that the public don’t generally care about, but you have to admit that all the power in the world doesn’t mean anything if you have to be in a wifi hotspot to utilize this thing.

      I suspect that other thing is an LED flash or notification light. 

      • Michael Weachock

        Hmmm.  If you draw lines through it, both dots are equal distance from the tablet’s midline, which seems odd for a single camera.  Also, the Tegra 3 press release has quite a few mentions of handling stereo 3D, including one video that suggests HDMI-ing into a TV to play 3D games through the tablet.  It seems plausible enough that this can TAKE 3D pictures, but then can only view them on a 3D enabled TV/monitor.

          Can’t think of a big reason.  Just saw a 32GB microSD card available yesterday for $32.  So you could technically end up with a 64GB version for ~$532.  Unless you need more than 64GB (of course, we don’t yet know how much of the built-in storage is usable, I’d guess at least 25GB)…

    Where’s the 16GB $399 model?  While those are awesome specs and I love Asus’ track record of updating the original TF, but at those prices…it’ll be DOA original Xoom-style.   The original TF turned the industry on its ear with its $399 launch price and great features.  Too bad Asus and Nvidia have seen fit to get greedy.  

    The only way to keep hammering away at Apple is to continue undercutting them on price AND topping them on features and expandability.  Matching Apple’s SKUs and pricepoints isn’t going to get Google anywhere.

      Stop being cheap. This is a hell of a bargain and will sell just as well as the original. The galaxy tab is selling well and has the same price as the iPad 2.

      • Anonymous

        This trounces the Galay Tab (all versions), that’s for sure. I’ve always thought that was an especially overpriced device anyway.  But while the 10.1 Galaxy Tab might sell the best of the non-iOS tablets, no Android tablet in any way, shape, or form approaches Apple’s marketshare or mindshare. 

        I’m not being cheap…I’ve got a Galaxy 7″ and an Acer A500.  But the oodles of people who have suddenly grown accustomed to “cheap” tablets thanks to the HP and RIM firesales and the cut-rate B&N and Amazon offerings are indeed “cheap” and are going to turn their noses up at anything over $250 or $300 that’s not from Apple.  I hope I’m wrong but I have a feeling that’s going to be the case going forward.  Your average B&M retail shopper doesn’t “know” or “trust” Asus or care about how many cores their SoC has.  HP’s dragging out their TouchPad clearance just long enough to act as a poison pill for the rest of the high-end tablet market (at least through year’s end). 

      • dodger55fan

        I don’t think HE is necessarily being cheap.

        What he is saying is that Asus (or any android tablet manufacturer) will not be able to compete with the i*ad 2 with the GENERAL PUBLIC, unless it is priced significantly lower.

        At this point in time, given the choice, most people will still go with the “other device,” simply because of familiarity, etc, regardless of the superior specs and software Android brings to the table.

        Thus, Android tablets need to continue to be priced lower in order to compete.

        If you don’t agree with this, see success of Moto Xoom vs i*ad compared to that of the original TF

          I agree while $500 for 32G is fantastic price and beats the iPad 2 by $100  it’s the $399 that get’s people’s attention.  They may still walk out with a 32G have they understand what that means in terms of storage but to get the general publics attention,  I think they should have done  all three memory sizes  16G, 32G and 64G.  

          16G wifi only’s are the best selling for a reason.  and that’s including both iOS and Android platforms.

      • Anonymous

        I don’t think it’s being cheap either.  Whether it’s right or wrong, people are going to look at the price before anything else.  The average consumer is going to see the iPad for $399 and this “weird Asus” brand for $499.  It makes sense to give a $399 option because Asus is not going to attract through its name.  Asus has to compete on price.  Specs alone do not sell tablets.  Ask 10 people what a Tegra 3 is and you will get 10 different answers.  You have to market an experience, not a list of specs.

          To most first time smartphone buyers HTC is a “weird” name too, but they seem to be doing alright.  At the end of day in the store if you can put a product in front of the customer that can stand out with a quick 5 minute demo then you have yourself a competitor regardless of the brand name assuming the customer is open minded.   If they aren’t then the price won’t matter anyway.

      Matching Apple’s price point with far superior specs seems fair. Additionally, Ice Cream Sandwich does have hardware acceleration by default.

      SKU stands for stock-keeping unit, it’s the code used to identify the product. Each product has a different SKU, so it is impossible to match Apple’s SKU :)

      Xoom launch problems had more to do with carrier tie in’s for 32G $600 for a 2 year contract.   If they came out with a wifi only version for a 32G and 16G for $500  the Xoom would have done much better but $799 off contract and $600 + a 2 year agreement was Moto’s fatal move .

  • http://www.facebook.com/LuisElTiburon Luis Rojas

    This is a hell of a bargain. Quad Core, 32gb of Ram, ICS (probably vanilla not slightly modded like TF1, because of googles involvment) for $499? Wow the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and iPad 2 cant compete with that. Only thing its missing is a 1080p screen and NFC, but you cant have it all.

    I most definitely am buying this, hopefully further down the road Asus allows customers to install windows 8 (or the dev community finds a way) so I can turn this into a real productive machine paired with that keyboard. (Unless some real powerful Android word processing app are released, because from what Ive heard they arent that shabby as of right now, but I will see as soon as i buy this)
