This year has barely begun, and yet we already have a brand new tablet to play with – in the shape of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
But the Transformer Prime is not just a tablet. It is something of a mash-up between a tablet and a laptop. What do we mean by that? It has a detachable keyboard, basically.
It is an impressive feature, and Asus has designed the Transformer Prime to perfection. The Transformer Prime was released in the UK on 12 January, so obviously there are no sales figures just yet.
But with the handy detachable keyboard, and its elegant design, the Transformer Prime is set to be a very popular tablet.
So how will it fare against the other big players in the tablet market, namely the iPad 3? Rumour has it that we’ll be seeing Apple’s latest tablet offering around March or April, so how will the two tablets compare?
The latest offering from Asus is a little slimmer than Apple’s iPad 2, at 8.3mm. And it packs a real punch under the hood, being the first tablet to come with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor
This ultra-powerful processor delivers 1.3GHz to make the Transformer Prime one of the fastest tablets out there at the moment.
It also boasts 1GB of RAM and is available with 32 or 64GB of on-board storage. It also supports micro SD cards if you need even more space.
Apple iPad 3
A quad-core processor can be expected, as Apple is never one to be outdone. Rumours also suggest that we can expect a high-res screen with the iPad 3, using dual-LED lightbar technology.
As for the iPad 3’s design, we all know it’ll look damn good. Reports have suggested a 7mm thick body, which would blow the Transformer Prime out of the water.
