Asus Transformer Prime now available for pre-order at Best Buy
While the quad-core powered Asus Transformer Prime does not have an official launch date, the tablet has been available for pre-order at Amazon and now can be reserved from Best Buy. The 32GB tablet has a Tegra 3 processor under the hood and while recent reports speculated about it launching with Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks as though Android 3.2 will be installed on the Asus Transformer Prime out of the box. Best Buy is charging $499.99 for the tablet in both champagne and gray.

According to Amazon, the Asus Transformer Prime will be released on December 16th, and if that date holds up the 10.1 inch tablet will be available as a gift for the holidays. And what fan of technology would not love to receive a quad-core powered tablet for Chanukah or Xmas.

I don't need it and will probably most likely return it, but I'm curious to see how much better it plays flash videos.

I kinda like the Xoom. Little heavy and the screen is not as vivid as some of the others, but the updates are first.

Finally an Android tablet truly worth owning. ICS is the future of tabs and honeycomb was quite slow and clunky.

First tablet that's gotten me interested in the tablet form-factor enough to consider purchasing.

I can't afford the entire 500 up front, so I'll likely put this monster on Layaway and have it paid off by February. Oh the life of a college student.
