We were never really in any doubt about the potential popularity of the Asus Transformer Prime. The Taiwanese manufacturer keenly boasted that its Eee Pad Transformer was the best selling tablet behind the iPad.
Turns out our faith was indeed well placed, as the first batch of Asus Transformer Primes appears to have sold out in less than 24 hours on Amazon.com.
As spotted by Android and Me, The Asus Transformer Prime rocketed up the Best Selling Computer Tablets chart on Amazon, and the retailer’s pre-order page now tells customers: “Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available.”
Not surprising, really, as the Asus Transformer Prime is one of the first tablets in the world to rock a quad-core Tegra 3 processor. Mmm, quad-core.
Other specs include a 10.1in Super IPS touchscreen with 1280x800 resolution, 1GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB internal storage, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi action, and an 8MP/1.2MP camera combo.
There has been some confusion, but we’re now told that the Asus Transformer Prime will ship with Honeycomb (Android 3.2), though Asus is keen to get Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on board the good ship. Sweet.
There's no sign of the Asus Transformer Prime on our Amazon, but we're expecting it to touch down at some point next month.
