Asus Transformer Prime to be announced on November 9th with quad-core goodness
At the AsiaD conference in Hong Kong, Asus Chairman Johnny Shih sat down with All Things D's iconic Walt Mossberg and pulled out ouf his briefcase a tablet that he called the Asus Transformer Prime. The sequel to the very popular Asus Transformer will be introduced on November 9th, said Shih, and will be equipped with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 under the hood.
The tablet has a detachable keyboard and is just 8.3mm thin. Shih told Mossberg that the goal is to launch the device in the first quarter of 2012. He also noted that the tablet will run the new Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, which was designed for use in both phones and tablets. The other day, we told you that UK retailer LambdaTek had posted information about the tablet on its web site, showing a release date of November 7th. It seems information from the top at Asus would suggest otherwise.
