November 9th confirmed launch date for quad-core Asus Transformer Prime
A couple of slides presented by Asus during an investor's conference on Monday confirmed what was a poorly kept secret. The manufacturer's sequel to the popular Asus Tranformer, the Asus Transformer Prime, will be launched November 9th with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor on board. While the second slide indicates that the tablet will be "leading" in quad-core and Ice Cream Sandwich, could this product actually be the first to be powered by the "Kal-El" processor and Android 4.0?

Asus also plans on launching two Android flavored hero products in the first quarter of 2012 and will "Focus on innovation and product perfection" according to one of the slides. The company also has some plans for Windows with Windows 8 powered tablets scheduled for the third quarter of next year with two hero products rolling out in Q3 of 2012.

The slides also took a look back at this year and Asus patted its own back  for being the first to offer a "real touch, real keyboard experience" with the Asus EeePad Transformer. The company notes that it is a major player in both the Android and Windows tablet market, leading in Android Honeycomb 3.0/3.1 and 3.2 and in Windows 7. Asus also says it is the leading partner in the WoA alliance which will bring the Windows 8 tablets to market.
