Review Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Tablet/MID
11 February 2012
Summary: Quad core tablet. The new Asus tablet with a keyboard dock is one of the first products with Nvidia's quad core processor, Tegra 3. Just in time for our review, Asus also upgraded to Android 4.0.
Pros: Newest mobile quad core chip, Very good screen, Elegant and robust aluminum case, Latest Android 4.0.3, Extended options thanks to keyboard dock, The elegant aluminum design is a successful improvement of the predecessor.
Cons: GPS only works sporadically, No 3G/UMTS, Only one speaker, A 3G/UMTS module, we can't say it often enough. At least for Europe.
Excerpt: As the tablet space grows increasingly crowded, it’s high time somebody switched up the formula and offered some hardware we can really get excited about. Cue the entrance of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime , the first quad-core tablet on the market and the first running Android 4.0, aka Ice...
Pros: The first quad-core tablet, and the first with Ice Cream Sandwich. So powerful, you won’t believe it until you use it. Outstanding for games. Interface enhancements are the shot in the arm Android needs. Price is good for what you get.
Cons: Wi-Fi only. 40-pin connector for charging instead of USB. Keyboard dock is pricey. Dock is lighter than tablet, making the assembly top-heavy and causing stability problems. Keyboard’s trackpad has issues.
Excerpt: When it launched the original Eee Pad Transformer TF101 last spring, ASUS was the first and only vendor to offer a 10-inch tablet with a keyboard attachment that turned the device into a clamshell-style Android notebook.

Or is it possible to use a modern mobile OS like Android, energy-efficient chips, and build something that bridges the gap between the portability of a...
Pros: Great design, build, and size, Bright, high quality SuperIPS+ screen, Tablet can run for over nine hours, Superb gaming performance
Cons: Poor app selection and quality, Software isn’t completely optimized for the faster processor, Browser performance can be sluggish
Summary: The Transformer Prime TF201 is currently being sold for Rs.49,999, although you can find it in online store like Flipkart for Rs.46,000. While it’s expensive for a non-3G tablet, it’s a very good upgrade from the previous version but we still wouldn’t recommend buying this now, especially when the...
Conclusion: There’s 32GB of built in storage and access to 8GB of Asus web storage. If we’re looking for a gripe about all this, then it has to be that there’s no 3G version. But if you are even remotely interested in writing text on an Android tablet, then the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime has to be the best...
