“Pleasurable moments and technology journalism: see the launch of a product abroad, and only one day then put his hands on it, because here in Brazil for the first time. Is the case of brand new tablet Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.”
So begins the Google Translation of an Asus Transformer Prime hands-on from – of all places – Brazil. Brilliant.
ZTOP’s Robert Martin has posted a whole bunch of pictures, and all in all seems quite taken with the Asus Transformer Prime. Heck, we’re sure we would be too.
Robert notes that the suggested retail price in the States will be $499 for the 32GB model or $599 for the 64GB, with the optional keyboard weighing in at $149.
Incidentally, the keyboard for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer won't be compatible with the Asus Transformer Prime and vice-versa.
At the moment the Asus Transformer Prime’s Honeycomb (Android 3.2) software is reportedly still buggy, but it’ll either ship with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) or be updated soon after release.
Robert praised the Asus Transformer Prime’s sound (“loud, clear, sharp”), the ultra-slim design (8.3mm), and the speed – thanks, of course, to the quad-core processor.
Head over to ZTOP to check out the hands-on in full.
