The upcoming release of the Asus Transformer Prime is eagerly awaited. Any glimmer of information is another factor in my excitement. In the last few days Asus have added a load of information, specs, pictures and the user manual to their product pages. The Transformer Prime is due to be released in December with Android 3.2 and an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich when it’s ready. There are still no official prices and there is still no official release date. But the spec alone is pretty impressive. They are really selling the device with every possible usage. Games, Music, Video, Books, Magazines, Working on the move and lots of other things. It really seems like the perfect all round device.

I am more than likely going to be getting this device when it is released. The option of 32 or 64 GB and whether to get it with the dock or not is too much for me to think about right now. The device when it receives Android 4.0 will be amazing. At 8-10mm thick it will be a great easily portable device. So are you eagerly awaiting this device? Are you going to get the current instead? As the prices are dropping all the time.
